Furthermore, Bixby is said to get integrated with Samsung Hello to offer information and features depending on a user's preference from weather to music and news. This means the Galaxy S9 will be the first smartphone to incorporate the under-display fingerprint scanner.

To recall, Samsung announced its in-house virtual voice assistant Bixby during its Galaxy Unpacked event back in March.

According to an industry insider, Samsung's in-screen fingerprint sensor technology is causing some brightness imbalance of the display.

The market share reported for the two iPhone models is a decent 20.1% while the two Samsung smartphones could muster only a dismal 8.1% in comparison. If the forthcoming generation of Galaxy Note is not prosperous, Samsung may want to reconsider putting the brand out to rest forever after what happened to Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung announced that it would soon launch voice commands for Bixby, its digital personal assistant available on the S8 and S8 Plus.

Hideki Matsuyama closes with 6-under 66 in US Open
Brooks Koepka is no longer flying under the radar after surviving a packed leaderboard Sunday at Erin Hills to win the U.S. He closed with a 5-under 67, only realizing after his par on the final hole that a birdie would have set yet another U.S.

Because of this, Samsung is believed to be investigating the problem.

January is tipped to be the launch window for the company's next flagship phone and feature an OLED-based display.

However, to take the crown of "best phone of the year" the Galaxy Note 8 will have to beat its popular sibling - the Galaxy S8. After Note 7 issue, the company makes sure that they don't have any issue unsolved or coming up again and again. The Samsung S8 is also created to work alongside the Gear VR and the Gear 360.

Vivo is planning to launch a much-awaited smartphone at the MWC Shanghai, end of the month. However, and in size it is not immediately possible to distinguish from S8 Plus with screen 6.2 inch due to the fact that Note 8 will be a maximum of 6.4-inch. In terms of pricing, the dual-SIM Galaxy S8 Plus is available for purchase from Samsung's website for £779 ($996), which is the same cost as the regular Galaxy S8 Plus.

We also hope more and more manufacturer will get onboard and bring this technology.
