All the users who are waiting for the launch of the Galaxy S8 by Samsung have to wait a little long for getting it in hand. Some reports sates that it is delayed and will be launched in April 2017, as the company conducting the extensive pre-release quality test for ensuring its integrity.

According to The Wall Street Journal, “Executives are now looking to delay the announcement of the Galaxy S8 until after the Mobile World Congress trade show in late February next year, the people said. One of these people said the unveiling could come as late as April. That would mark a break from the past three years, when Samsung used the tech showcase in Barcelona to unveil its newest top-of-the-line Galaxy S smartphones.

Samsung wants to introduce standout features with the Galaxy S8 to win back lost sales momentum. And for doing this it is going to introduce the AI technology.

The South Korean company confirmed that it will introduce its own AI assistant with the Galaxy S8, and there may be a dedicated hardware button to invoke the assistant. There is no detailed confirmation by the company yet about the type of features its new assistant will offer, but says it will be “significantly differentiated” from competitors, and will work with a range of third-party services.

According to Samsung executive Vice President Rhee Injong

Developers can attach and upload services to our agent, even if Samsung doesn’t do anything on its own, the more services that get attached the smarter this agent will get, learn more new services, and provide them to end-users with ease.”

Galaxy S8 handset will include button on the side edge of the smartphone that would be used to launch a beefed-up virtual assistant based on artificial intelligence similar to Apple Inc.’s Siri. These specifications are not yet finalized and could change.

This time Samsung is fully interested and focusing on AI technology and looking forward for the great success of the Galaxy S8 in coming April, 2017.
