The discount is only temporary though. Those prices will revert to their original after the New Year. Samsung is getting ready to launch its own digital assistant And it will debut with the release of the Galaxy S8 next year. Biv, the name of the AI, will also find it's way into Samsung's other products that will include appliances and wearable devices. Samsung's Note 7 saga continues to play out. The company claims that 85% of all devices have been returned, but the remaining phones still present an issue In an intent to encourage those hold outs, Samsung is playing on pushing a software update that will prevent the Note 7 from charging beyond 60% in addition to constantly reminding the user to return the phone.
