Put through 8-point battery safety check, because, you know…
Passwords suck, so biometric security instead.
You know, fingerprints and iris scanners.
And facial recognition. Phone can map your face, know its you, and unlock.
Fingerprint scanner is now on the back, up high by the camera.
It's probably a really inconvenient location, so they're really going to be pushing the iris and face scanning
Touting Samsung Pay, which has seen 240 million transactions so far.
Partnered with 870 banks, expanding to support online banks.
Samsung Pass biometric login support for websites
And getting built into financial services, too.
Balances security and convenience. That's a dangerous balancing act.
Tracks the basic stuff, like steps and computed calories. Amwell partnersip includes "Ask an Expert" to connect you with a real doctor.
Available in Korea and China now, coming to the US at launch, and then others later.

Here to talk about the future of mobile interaction.
There's lots of tapping and layers and menus. It's richer, but more complicated and cluttered.
"We end up adapting to our phones when our phones should be adapting to us"
i.e. our interface design is not good. And we're not doing well.
Oh, giant box screen is back on the stage.
Innovation that changes the way you use your phone: Bixby
New intelligent interface.
Voice is an isolated feature right now that doesn't necessarily understand what's happening on the screen.
Bixby understands the context of what you're doing right now on the phone.
Example: Open maps, push the physical Bixby button on the side of the phone, and say "Capture this and send to Cindy."
It takes a screenshot, makes you pick a person with your finger, and then send in Messaging.
Bixby is also built into the camera. Essentially, it's machine vision — it can understand what you're pointing it at.
Shop Amazon, search landmarks, translate text, etc.
Pointed camera at the Flatiron building, Bixby recognized it.
Bixby's photo recognition capabilities are, to me, its most exciting potential application, especially since it's integrated with the regular camera app.
Point camera at a product, Bixby recongizes it and finds it online to uy.
Swipe to the right on the home screen and Bixby shows you cards of contextual information based on where you are, what time it is, and what you use when and where.
The more you use it, the more it learns.
In this respect… it's the Google Now launcher. But Bixby.
Includes reminders: Bixby can set up a reminder for you to read an article when you get home.
Or play music from Google Play
Bixby has integrated location and time-based reminders, which is convenient because Bixby Home is actually integrated with the default launcher. Very cool.
Talk, See, Recommend, Remind
It can also integrate into your smart home devices, like Samsung TVs and Samsung washing machines and Samsung fridges and Samsung robot vaccuums.
Works with SmartThings too, which is Z-Wave
Samsung Connect provides a dashboard of all your connected devices, and remotely access as well.
