Well, is Galaxy S9 full screen? Is there any fingerprint sensor? Still there were no official answers about these questions.
Meanwhile, DJ Koh “president of Samsung’s mobile business” said AI assistant Bixby 2.0 will be launched in 2018 and is expected to cover all of its Samsung devices (including smartphones, notebooks and smart TVs) by 2020.
Many companies have AI R & D capabilities, but not many have a better hardware development foundation, although we start later than other companies, but we are confident to provide consumers with the best experience.
He said the user experience is the biggest obstacle to commercialization, however, Samsung is actively seeking this solution.
In addition, last year DJ Koh told the media that the Galaxy X folding screen handset to be released this year has also been confirmed to be deferred until next year, 2019.
