This could be good news or bad news for Apple. These phones are likely a prototype for Samsung's much anticipated Galaxy X phone. More than 100,000 units of the new S8 were tested, he added. A score of 170,000 points is impressive and one of the highest so far.
Bixby is a contextual service, not just a voice assistant, and "even if the Voice component isn't there yet, Bixby can still learn about you with Bixby Home and Bixby Vision", Llamas noted.

Johnson, McIlroy head crowded cast of Masters contenders

"People are starting to worry whether Samsung can repeat these kinds of numbers next year", said Park Jung-hoon, fund manager at HDC Asset Management. Hundreds if not thousands of phones are missing from the likes of Sony, HTC, Huawei, Honor, Asus, OnePlus to name but a few brands off the top of our heads. According to ComputerWorld, the Galaxy S8 seems to have materialized all the speculated features of the new iPhone.
Now, attention has turned to what Samsung has planned for its next launch, with the company set to explore several avenues in developing new and exciting devices.
"Specifically designed for the Australian market, whereby the TV understands the way we speak and can speak back with an Aussie accent, can make recommendations based on analysing viewing habits and truly illustrates the level of innovation that Samsung is able to deliver to Australian consumers".

We have to take with a pinch of salt that it's the "best" display on the market.
