Samsung Galaxy S8 is reportedly coming out this month with similarly rumored specs of the iPhone. Expected to feature the latest technology advancements, the new smartphone is also reportedly coming out incomplete since Bixby, the newest virtual assistant is not able to make it to the April 21 launch of Galaxy S8.

The highly anticipated smartphone boasts of its latest feature which can perform tasks through voice requests. Samsung's new Bixby digital aide in English language version has been added to the upcoming Galaxy S8.

According to the official statement released by Samsung, the new virtual assistant has key features like Vision, Home and Reminder. These features will enable the new smartphone to further help the user to perform tasks by providing the user with necessary information and alerting the user of the things he needs to do.

Furthermore, Bixby Voice, the other feature of the virtual assistant, will respond to perform tasks via voice request. This voice recognition technology has been internally tested prior to the upcoming launch.

Unfortunately, the virtual assistant did not pass the requirements and needed some fixing. Samsung has confirmed to Time that Bixby Voice will not be ready to join the debut of Galaxy S8 this month.

According to the tech giant, the new Bixby Voice can only be activated later this spring. However, the other features of Bixby, the Vision, Home and Reminders, are all ready for the April 21 global launch.

Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy S8 looks like an exact replica of everything that rumors say about the upcoming iPhone 8. According to ComputerWorld, the Galaxy S8 seems to have materialized all the speculated features of the new iPhone.

Just like the speculated specs of iPhone 8, the new flagship from Samsung appears to have similar features. The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 is also expected to have a facial recognition feature, infinity display, and augmented reality.
