The company later revealed that the phones were exploding because of the batteries. However, Samsung has been consistently producing new models to retain the market.

Just to keep you informed, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ were opened for pre-orders in South Korea on April 7, which is just a week ago. The stock price of Samsung climbed 1.24% to around 2.1 million won per share in South Korea on Thursday, April 13.

But it does highlight the head-start Apple, Google and Amazon have with their rival AI tech and call into question whether Bixby is really capable of leapfrogging their efforts.

Bixby is Samsung's answer to Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri, a voice-powered assistant created to handle many aspects of your life, from reminding you what to buy at the grocery store to turning on your phone's wireless hotspot. Both the smartphones were unveiled on March 29 at the Galaxy Unpacked event in New York City.

The suspect in the attack, a 39-year-old native of Uzbekistan, was a failed asylum-seeker who eluded police efforts to deport him. The device was left on busy street outside Groenland underground station in the centre of Oslo and a large area was cordoned off.

On the other hand, the LG G6 is already introduced with a 5.7-inch full-version display.

Both Samsung and LG Display now lead the market in flexible screen displays, and LG recently began investing billions of dollars to expand its production capabilities for that technology. The major highlight of the phones is the "infinity display" feature.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will launch with the Bixby digital assistant that is a great feature addition to the flagship smartphones. However, some analysts say that not including Bixby Voice in the launch of Samsung Galaxy S8 is a sign that the Korean telecommunications firm has learned from their past debacle. Also, Samsung will release the Exynos 8895 variant of the phones in India, which is underwhelming. The device packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot. Though, the U.S. variants of the Galaxy S8 and the S8+ come with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor. For the cameras, the back has a 12MP shooter while the front comes with an 8MP sensor. As of now, there's no info whether the Samsung Bixby assistant will be available to Indian market or now.
