- Galaxy S8 to have a female smart assistant called Kestra
- It is expected to offer 256GB of internal storage
- The smartphone is expected to launch on February 26
After the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung’s next flagship, Galaxy S8, will come bearing a lot of added expectations. Rumours have been ripe on what the Galaxy S8 will entail, and new leaks hint at its memory configuration and voice assistant additions.
The Galaxy S8 has already been rumoured to come with an artificial intelligence-based voice assistant. The assistant will reportedly have a male and female voice called Bixby and Kestra respectively. In an EU patent application description, the nature of Bixby and Kestra is clearly described as “Computer software for enabling hands-free use of a mobile phone through voice recognition” and “Computer software used to process voice commands.” Both these smart assistants are expected to debut with the Galaxy S8 launch in February next year.
Furthermore, Techtastic reports that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport 6GB of RAM. This is an upgrade from the 4GB RAM seen on predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S7. The Galaxy S8 is also rumoured to sport a 256GB storage variant. It is unclear whether this will be the only storage option, or one of the storage variants made available in the market. If Samsung follows tradition, then a separate microSD slot for further expansion of memory will also be offered with Galaxy S8. Just to put things into perspective, the predecessor was offered in 32GB and 64GB storage variants only.
