Samsung Galaxy S8 Update: New Flagship Smartphone Believed To Have AirPods

Close

Samsung is working hard for its new flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8. The latest buzz is that they have a pair of wireless earbuds that they plan to launch in the U.K. This is not the first time they launched wireless earbuds as they also brought out the Gear IconX headphones in the U.K. early last year.

According to Express, Samsung's Gear Icon X is concentrated more on the user's fitness activity as it tracks your physical activity and gives updates on essential data from calories burned vis heart rate. It had 4GB of internal space which is big enough to contain 1,000 music tracks. The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to have something similar, but something even better, which means bigger space.

Samsung has yet to announce whether the wireless earbuds will be included in the package of the Samsung Galaxy S8 or it would be sold separately. There are also speculations that the smartphone will be without the traiditional 3.5mm headphone jack. It can only mean that Samsung would prefer its users to use USB-C headphones or wireless ones.

The Samsung Galaxy S8, according to Forbes, could be picking up a new digital assistant named Bixby. It is a voice-powered digital assistant similar to the iPhone's Siri and Google's Google Assistant. Samsung recently acquired the rights to it and it makes perfect sense for the Korean electronics giant to include it in their flagship smartphone that will be out in U.K. stores in a few months. This could also boost its wireless headphones as users can request songs, make phone calls, dictate messages and even ask for directions.
