Build a scalable intelligence platform
Bixby began as an intelligent interface, a practical way to communicate with the phone by voice. Now Samsung is becoming a scalable news platform to support various products and services in consumer life. In SDC 2018, Samsung introduces new ways for developers to deliver more conversational, personalized and useful intelligent assistant experience for more customers.
In order to facilitate the development of Bixby's performance services, Samsung is introducing Samsung Bixby Developer StudioThe Toolkit provides an intuitive way for developers and partners to transfer intelligence to multiple services and devices. Developers will be able to easily create Bixby capsules (resources or services created for Bixby) and to facilitate consumer access to the Internet Bixby Marketplace, The Bixby Platform will enable developers to easily customize their capsules from mobile phones and TVs to devices and other products across the entire Samsung ecosystem.
As part of Bixby's expansion, Samsung has pledged to expand to five new languages in the coming months, including British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Offer a connected lifestyle for everyone
Samsung's vision of connected life focuses on the open IoT ecosystem, which brings together a growing number of connected devices on a single platform. It is available in more than 200 markets around the world. SmartThings offers a connected experience in a single application and takes over the IOT out of intelligent house, car and office, among others.
Samsung now enables developers to connect their devices and services more quickly and easily to the SmartThings platform via a new set of reworked tools Workspace for SmartThings developersThese enhanced tools include the SmartThings Cloud Connector, SmartThings Device Kit, and SmartThings Hub Connector. Developers can build and run on a platform as well as easily integrate Zigbee and Z-Wave devices.
In addition, the updated Works with SmartThings (WWST) certification program provides developers with direct access to experts and SmartThings resources. The WWST helps ensure that devices and services are fully optimized for the platform to give consumers the best experience.
Pioneer user experience and screen innovation
Samsung introduces a new and intuitive interface design One user interface. Its simple and minimalist design retains the most relevant content in the lower half of the screen, making it more natural and comfortable with one-handed operation. The experience has been redesigned to reduce clutter and interference, so the user can better concentrate and move quickly on his phone.
Samsung's legacy as the creator of the key format in its category continues to be the basis for screen innovation, resulting in a revolution in the smartphone format. The Infinity Flex Display together with one user interface, offer a new type of mobile experience that allows users to get where their normal smartphone does not. Now they have the best of both worlds: a compact smartphone that unfolds and reveals a larger screen for multiple control and allows you to watch content. The experience with the application allows a smooth transition from the smallest screen to the largest when the device is deployed. In addition, users can browse, track, connect, and perform multiple tasks without losing momentum with three current active applications on the largest screen.
As Infinity Flex Display is the next-generation platform, Samsung invites developers to take part in this journey from the start. Through collaboration with Google and the Android developer community, Samsung maximizes the potential of this new format to create an optimized folding user experience.
