Finally, users of the old Galaxy devices can remap Bixby

Published

on

Last week, we got to know that the ability to remap Bixby in Samsung smartphones is not going to be exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy S10 flagship lineup soon.

We talked about the option Samsung has given its users of the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup to change the Bixby button to your own liking and it appears that the company is soon going to roll out the same feature to the older flagships (the Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup and the Samsung Galaxy Note 9).Android Updated

No matter whether you hate the Bixby button or not, it is always a nice feel to have an option and the company has taken the right step here. There are workarounds available already, but having it natively is the best thing to have.

Now, the feature has finally arrived on the older generations of the Samsung Galaxy devices and you can natively disable or remap Bixby for good.

The report has come courtesy of SamMobile.

Samsung to allow us to replace ‘Hi Bixby’ hotword with something else. (/?)

If this turns out to be true, we will, for the first time, be able to customize the hotword on any personal assistant as per own choice.

This is not so sure as of now, but the famous tipster Ice Universe has mentioned in a Tweet as to what the new feature might have in store for us (Hi Bixby”, you can change to “Hi IceCat” and so on.😄)

You can do that by going to in the Settings and then Advanced features > Bixby key. Also, keep in mind that a long press will always launch Bixby Voice.

In the home country of Korea, Samsung has applied for a trademark for Q BIX. The trademark was published by KIPO (Korean Intellectual Property Office) on 13 March 2019. The trademark is categorized as Class 9 with the description; ‘audio speakers with artificial intelligence; televisions’.

The letter ‘Q’ seems to refer to QLED. Samsung also uses the names Q Picture, Q Style and Q Smart to emphasize the different functions of the TV. BIX is a logical abbreviation for Bixby, the description also agrees with this.

Bixby 3.0 has been discussed for some time. This updated speech assistant will be available at the time of the introduction of the Galaxy Fold, the folding smartphone will be launched at the end of April. It is possible that the name Samsung Q BIX will be introduced when this updated version also becomes available for QLED TVs. The new models are expected at the IFA 2019 in early September.

Samsung has filed the patent for Samsung Smart Things Air which is going to be a new addition to the Smart Things lineup.

The report has come to Android Updated courtesy of Letsgodigital.

On March 15, 2019, Samsung Electronics filed a trademark application for SmartThings Air with EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office). The trademark was filed in Madrid, Spain by intermediary Abril Abogados. This company has often acted in the name of Samsung, so earlier this year the trademark was applied for Neuro Game Booster.

The application is classified as Class 9/42, with a very detailed description; ‘Software for operating home automation systems, including lighting, heating, air conditioning, alarm, and other safety equipment. Electric sensors for measuring the air quality for monitoring, control, and automation of the environment. Sensors for detecting air quality in the form of volatile gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, pollen or toxins in the air. Sensors for detecting the temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, oxygen, and nitrogen concentration in the air. Software for displaying the data received from the air quality sensors.”

In the (near) future, this will probably make it possible to measure the air quality in your immediate environment with Samsung mobile devices, such as a smartphone, tablet or smartwatch. Are you in a polluted area? Then you will automatically receive an alert so that you can never be unexpectedly attacked by carbon monoxide poisoning or other gases that can endanger your health. Something you regularly hear about in the news.

Although Samsung already offers various devices and solutions to monitor air quality, it is, of course, unique if this is also possible via your smartphone. For example, it no longer matters in which environment you are, the air quality is always measured and checked for you automatically, and you immediately receive a signal in the event of danger.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.Last year, ZTE launched the ZTE Axon M which boasted of a dual display. A little while ago, the company launched the ZTE Axon 10 Pro flagship.

The company is now all geared up to launch yet another amazing smartphone dubbed the ZTE Axon S.

As per the recently leaked renders (courtesy of Trending Leaks), the ZTE Axon S will sport a triple rear camera setup which will interestingly pop out horizontally.

Looking at the renders, we can clearly see that the device will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner. Furthermore, there would be a dual front camera which will be integrated into the same protruding mechanism.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too

The sliding mechanism does not appear to be motorized and will most certainly be manual which makes sense.

As of now, there is no word on the official specifications of the device, but the report further mentions that we will get a 48MP primary sensor and a 19MP secondary sensor. The third one will most possibly be a ToF sensor.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.

Though the specifications of the device are not clear as of now, we can expect the ZTE Axon S to be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with at least 8GB of RAM (given the company’s history).

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.
