The Samsung SM-J720F, which is expected to debut as Galaxy J7 Duo, will pack a dual camera that can do Live Focus bokeh shots. It will also have Bixby and a removable battery. We got this useful information thanks to a leaked official user manual for the device, detailing its many software and hardware features. One of the most interesting additions is the removable battery. The Galaxy J7 and its J-series contemporaries have sealed-in batteries. Next up is the Bixby addition – this will be the first Bixby-enabled midranger by Samsung. Since there is no physical Bixby button it’s… – Latest articles

How to turn off Bixby on the Samsung Galaxy S9, S8, and Note 8

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The Galaxy S9 has arrived in the United States and around the world. After unboxing Samsung’s latest flagship phone and fawning over its sleek design (and the inclusion of an actual headphone jack), it probably won’t be long before you find yourself hitting the dedicated Bixby button. If you’re a fan of the assistant and its powerful ability to control apps and change settings, maybe you’ll be doing so intentionally.

But a lot of you will inevitably bring up Bixby when you mean to change the volume; the buttons are a little too close together to avoid the occasional mistake. If you find it happening often, you’ve got the option of disabling Bixby entirely. That way, accidental presses of the button will have no effect. Bixby won’t…

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 deserves better than Bixby

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

 Bixby is, by far, the most frustrating part of the S9. It’s true, of course, that no voice assistant is perfect, but a full year after Samsung’s smart assistant debuted on the Galaxy S8, it still feels unfinished. Of course, the company’s made some significant progress, and a slew of artificial intelligence startup acquisitions point to an offering that’s going to… Read More

Samsung Bixby news: smart speaker coming 2H 2018, version 2.0 may debut with Galaxy Note 9

Samsung Bixby weather Galaxy S8

Samsung’s Bixby assistant is alive and well as we enter 2018, as evidenced by the dedicated Bixby button found on the sides of the new Galaxy S9 and S9+. This week, Samsung explained how we’re going to see even more of Bixby later this year.

A smart speaker featuring Bixby will launch in the second half of 2018. That’s what D.J. Koh, head of mobile at Samsung, has told the Wall Street Journal. No other details of the voice-activated speaker have been shared, so it’s unclear what it’ll cost or what kind of features it’ll offer.

We’ve been hearing talk of a Bixby smart speaker since July 2017, and at the end of last year, rumors said that Samsung would launch the device in the first half of 2018. Now it looks like the wait will be a bit longer, which could make things a bit more difficult for the Bixby speaker when it does launch since its competition will now have time to improve. We don’t know what kind of features the Bixby speaker will have at launch beyond the likely ability to answer questions about the weather and stuff like that, though, so we’ll just have to wait and see what Samsung cooks up.

In other Bixby news, Koh told ZDNet that Samsung could launch Bixby 2.0 alongside the Galaxy Note 9. Bixby 2.0 was originally announced in October 2017 and is slated to feature better natural language capabilities that should result in more natural commands. The upgraded assistant will also work on devices beyond phones, including TVs, refrigerators, and other connected devices. – Latest videos, reviews, articles, news and posts

Should Samsung keep the Bixby button?

Samsung Galaxy S9

Samsung has already announced that it will be unveiling its newest flagship smartphone on the 25th of February. And now the company has turned towards teasing that incoming handset, basically confirming it will be called the Galaxy S9 (and Galaxy S9+), while also making sure we know that the camera is going to be a huge focal point for the company this year.

Samsung is probably pretty excited to lift the curtain off what it has been working on. And plenty of customers are excited to see the next big thing, too. Which is why the rumor mill has so much traction.

Just recently we got to see and hear all about the Galaxy S9, many days ahead of the official announcement. That’s par for the course, to be sure. We typically know what a new phone has to offer long before a company announces it, and the Galaxy S9 was not going to be the device to break that trend.

As such, barring any major changes, we know the processor, amount of RAM and built-in storage, and what the camera situation is going to be for both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. There is a lot to look forward to!

And then there’s the Bixby button.

This is a feature that Samsung launched with the Galaxy S8 and Bixby in general. Bixby itself is marketed as a feature that goes beyond the standard digital personal assistant, going as far as to let users actually control specific functions on their phone just by using their voice. Plus, Bixby Vision is included, too, and the standard digital personal assistant features for good measure.

But the inclusion of a physical button, which serves only as a means to summon Bixby, didn’t necessarily go over all that well. It wasn’t dinged as heavily as the unfortunate positioning of the fingerprint reader on the back of last year’s flagship smartphone, but it seemed to be pretty close in some reviews and feedback.

So when these latest renders of the Galaxy S9 surfaced, I had to double check to see if the Bixby button was still around. These aren’t the only leaked renders of the upcoming handset, to be sure, but back then I wasn’t thinking about it. Now, though, closer to unveiling, I couldn’t help but wonder if Samsung was going to keep it around.

I wasn’t surprised to see it there, to be honest. Samsung has invested a lot of time and money in Bixby, and it wants (needs?) the feature to take off for Samsung customers. After all, the company wants Bixby everywhere. The same way that Amazon wants Alexa everywhere, and Google wants Google Assistant everywhere.

So maybe the big question should be whether or not Samsung is going to allow Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners to remap the button. Keep the button, and have it be mapped to launch Bixby out of the box, but if customers don’t want to use it let them use that button to launch something else.

What do you think? Should Samsung ditch the Bixby button altogether, or let customers remap it? Or is this a button that should be all Bixby or nothing? Let me know! – Latest videos, reviews, articles, news and posts
