Samsung Galaxy S8+ 6GB initial stock sold out in Korea

There's some bad news for those who were waiting to experience Samsung's new voice functionality - the service will not be available when the Galaxy S8 launches on 21 April. The Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus will launch in the U.S. on 21 April, but Bixby Voice won't be available later in the Spring.

Yes, the company says that key features of Bixby which they demonstrated at the launch like visual search, ability to remind you of something, etc. will work during the global launch. Samsung Galaxy S8 features were unveiled at the event held late March, giving fans an introduction to the key upgrades on the new device.

South African president accuses protesters of racism
Thousands of South Africans marched in parts of the country to press their demand for the resignation of Zuma last Friday. It is clear that some of our white compatriots regard black people as being lesser human beings or sub-human, ' he said.

The English-language version of Bixby could be delayed until the end of May, according to a source that spoke to The Wall Street Journal, but Samsung has not made a final decision on timing. However, given that Bixby was going to be Samsung's big answer to Apple's Siri, missing the S8's launch seems rather unceremonious.

The company believes it could completely change the way consumers interact with their devices, and has even equipped the S8 with a physical Bixby button. But you won't be able to control the smartphone by voice, and that might be a huge letdown for some users.

Flowers are seen on a fence by Ahlens department store following Friday's attack in central Stockholm , Sweden, April 9, 2017. In addition to the four killed, 15 people were injured, four of them critically, Stockholm County Council said earlier .

The Samsung Galaxy S8 should be a fantastic smartphone either way and if all else fails, the Google Now app is still readily available.

The Galaxy S8 boasting of a virtual assistant that can't be usable through voice is indeed surprising. Many leading tech reporters and industry analysts, however, have speculated that this may just be the latest in a series of misfortunes to have hit Samsung.
