Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 last month. About 20 days since the original launch and three days before the phone goes on sale in the US markets, the phone has formally been launched in India too. The phone finally launched in India at a press conference in New Delhi. In addition to the Note 8, Samsung also brought the Bixby Assistant to India.
Bixby has now been programmed to understand the English language in an Indian accent for the users in India. Bixby will be a part of Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and will also be enabled for the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus users. At the event Samsung also mentioned about Samsung Pay and its success in India since it was launched.
