If you are wondering what Bixby is, then you probably do not know about Samsung's upcoming AI powered voice assistant that will probably debut with the Galaxy S8. In fact, Samsung had acquired Viv Labs with the primary intent of developing the AI based digital assistant for its next flagship handset. Viv Labs is responsible for the creation of Apple's voice assistant, Siri. Although the name Bixby isn't official yet, all reports are suggesting that's what it will be called on release.


It remains to be seen how well the new AI assistant stacks up against the likes of Microsoft's Cortana, Google Assistant and of course, Apple's Siri. Nevertheless, many are already calling it the most advanced AI assistant ever to be built for a smartphone. The main reason behind such lofty expectations is of course the fact that it is being developed by Dag Kittlaus, Adam Cheyer and Chris Brigham; the same people who developed Siri for Apple. Judging by how well Apple's voice assistant was implemented and how successful it became in the following years, it isn't unrealistic to expect that they will do something even more impressive with Bixby, given that they now have access to more information and technology than before.

The answer to that question is yes, if the latest market reports and the financial reports of both the companies are taken into account. Apple's financial reports for Q1 2016 suggests that the company experienced a huge downfall in terms of iPhone shipments and the following quarter will once again experience an even sharper decline due to a proportionate channel inventory amendment.


Officially though, Tim Cook explained the situation by blaming it on an insufficient number of people's willingness to upgrade to the current gen of iPhones, as compared to when the iPhone 6 was launched. There was also a mention of "macroeconomic weakness" and according to him; the number of people who switched from Android to iPhone was at an all time high in the first quarter of 2016.


In spite of all the explanation, there is evidence that Apple might actually be losing a great deal of the market to its Korean competition. In a year-over-year comparison, Apple lost 16% of its Q1 sales from last year while Samsung's sales increased by 8%. There is little chance of Apple seeing much improvement this year as even in the last quarter of 2016, analysts are predicting a fall of 9.1% in year-over-year comparison. Samsung on the other hand is expected to see significant year-over-year increase in sales throughout all the quarters.


A logical conclusion from these results would be that Apple is losing share to Samsung in the high-end segment of the smartphone business, mainly due to the success of the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge. In fact, it is not only Apple which is losing smartphone business to Samsung, but other major Android manufacturers like LG, HTC, and Sony are all on the same boat. From where things are right now, Apple's biggest chance to get back at least some of its lost business is a successful iPhone 7 launch.

There have been speculations about a 4-inch smartphone manufactured by Apple for many months now. But, it doesn't have any official backing till now. As per some of the reported news, this might change in couple of weeks. The major thing under debate has been the name of this device. From the very beginning some reported it would be called as the iPhone 6c, others started referring it as iPhone 7c, and today a Chinese analyst claims that neither of the names will be used. It will be known as the iPhone 5e, where e stands for "enhanced".


As per a report from MyDrivers, FoxConn is currently working on the production of iPhone 5e and it'll on on sale sometime in March. This device is supposed to be priced at around $500, replacing the iPhone 5s as the new mid-range smartphone. The report also says that the smartphone will feature an A8 processor backed by 1GB of RAM and 16/64GB of storage. The iPhone 5e will have in-built support for Apple Pay and feature voice over LTE. The primary camera will have a 8 MP unit. The report directly denies other rumors that reported about phone's better specs, with an A9 chip, as available in the iPhone 6s series. When it comes to design, the iPhone 5e will look like Phone 5s, though some reports have pointed out that the phone might feature a curved "2.5D" display as found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s. In China, the iPhone 5e would roughly cost CNY 3,288, which currently equals $500 or €459.

When people become successful they tend to lose focus. However, for Apple having focus is the one thing that has kept them alive.

This is one of the biggest tech companies in the world, however, they still only make but a handful product. Moreover, with that handful, they are still very powerful and make much more than other companies who have diversified.
