Samsung Galaxy S9: AI comes to life

The Samsung Galaxy S9 doesn’t just have beauty - it’s pretty brainy too. And its brains are smarter than ever before, with Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality features that make life easier (and more fun!) for us humans.

Brainy Bixby at your service

Samsung’s dedicated voice assistant, Bixby, is ready to answer your every query at the mere touch of a button. The Bixby button, placed under the volume keys, makes summoning Bixby super easy - you don’t even need to unlock your phone.

Bixby has some great features, chief among which is that she (or he, if you change the default voice) is a fast learner. If she doesn’t understand you, just press the ‘teach me’ button and tell her which word she incorrectly identified. She promises to do better next time.

Bixby Vision is a super-cool new feature, too. Want to know how many calories are in your apple? Point your camera at it, open Bixby Vision, and useful info about what the camera is seeing will pop up. If apples aren’t your thing, Bixby can also read and identify wine labels so you can sound like a fundi. In fact, she can read any text from a photo, and translate it, which is pretty nifty.

Bixby can also recognise where you are from surrounding landmarks, and recommend places nearby.

Reality, only better
