Samsung Galaxy S8 v iPhone 8: Why Samsung might have the Edge | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter



With the dust finally beginning to clear on the Samsung debacle, it seems the Korean company would be featuring a lot of the cool new kinks that Apple will also be featuring on their iPhone 8.
So things like; all-screen design with buttons and sensors incorporated into the display, 3D Touch support, dual-lens rear camera, and a personal voice assistant all from the iPhone may be coming with the Samsung Galaxy S8.
This doesn't mean Samsung only plans to just copy, they will be doing some tinkering of their own and nothing will be more exciting than their personal voice assistant which should make a debut with the S8.
According to GalaxyClub, the Galaxy S8’s AI assistant will come with two personalities, including male (Bixby) and female (Kestra) voices, and bring over support for mobile payments by voice.
The site discovered new AI-related trademark applications filed in South Korea and the European Union, which mention the two names and variations thereof.
Interestingly, the name Bixby Pay has also been spotted, suggesting that Samsung is looking to let people pay for goods by simply voicing the appropriate instruction to either Bixby or Kestra.
The company responsible for this is Viv, who Samsung has now acquired and make services and products like Siri.

Siri can do payments with PayPal at the moment, but if the rumours are to be true, then Bixby and Kestra might just be better than Siri. 
Your move Apple.
