Aside from technical issues such as the manufacturing process – supposedly 7 nanometers – or other new features, it’s all about: How the new Exynos chip can ensure that Samsung will have a say in this new world of AI.

The secret may be to strike the perfect balance between Hardware and Software, something that is the Holy Grail for manufacturers and that some 7 manage to do better than others.

Bixby will be crucial for Samsung

I admit we didn’t quite understand why Samsung developed Bixby, we already had three well-developed assistants in the ranks of Google Apple and Amazon. But now, releasing Bixby into the hands of independent programmers, the sky is the limit. It will be

What do you think Samsung can bring us in 2019?
