Leo Burnett Sydney creates global work for Samsung Galaxy

Following the recent unveiling and a release date later his month, UK's Truly Exquisite has announced limited edition gold and platinum versions of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.

The Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are equipped with an advanced 8MP F1.7 Smart autofocus front camera and 12MP F1.7 Dual Pixel rear camera for low-light, zoom and anti-blur photos with enhanced image processing. "Anything you can do with touch, you can do with voice", Samsung said. Hopefully, the Samsung Galaxy S8 features update for the Bixby app will be out soon.

One of the key features of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus handsets will not be available when the phones ship, the smartphone giant has revealed. They will start at £2250 ($2,810 USD). The flawless time for new Galaxy S8 owners to try out Bixby Voice and get accustomed to using it regularly would be right at launch, but now the early GS8 buyers won't have that feature to try out. This includes Bixby Vision which allows users to identify objects the camera is pointing at, Bixby Reminder and Bixby Home. Samsung's focus has now shifted towards the Galaxy S8, set to launch later this month.

While some elements of Bixby will be included in the April 21 launch, the headline voice activation feature won't be available in the US until "later this spring", Samsung said in a statement.

With the voice assistant missing in action, what's left should still be impressive, but may not by much.

Tech Crunch reported that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will delay its English version (meant for the western users) of Bixby voice assistant.

Bixby was introduced as the headline feature of the Galaxy S8 when it was unveiled in late March, with the smartphone featuring a dedicated button on the left side to activate the feature.

While initially it won't be available in the United States, there's no telling when Bixby Voice will become available in other markets either.

'It is continuing to evolve, ' Samsung spokesman Eric Chou said. Samsung plans to add more languages later.
