Headphones from AKG, the company's new partner, will be supplied with the smartphone. The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will also debut the personal assistant Bixby, the counterpart to Siri on the iPhone and Google Assistant on the Google Pixel. Its functionality is somewhat different from the development of competitors: first of all, it will help the user manage the basic functions of the smartphone, and not search for information on the network. With it, for example, you can use voice commands to edit photos in the gallery and send them to other users without touching the screen. At the same time, the assistant is able to recognize the context of what is happening on the screen: if you point the smartphone camera at a building, the assistant will recognize it and display available information about it on the screen.

For the S8 and S8 Plus, you can also buy a special Samsung Dex docking station, which will allow you to connect your smartphone to a monitor, mouse and keyboard and use it like a personal computer. It is reported that Microsoft has already optimized the suite of office software, so that at the start of sales, Dex will allow working in Word and PowerPoint.

New Samsung smartphones will go on sale in Russia in mid-April, the price has not yet been disclosed.

In addition to smartphones, Samsung also introduced a wireless controller for the Gear VR glasses, which will allow you to control objects in virtual reality with hand movements, as well as a new version of the Gear 360 360-degree camera. She learned to broadcast information to the network in real time.>
