If all the leaks are true, there’s a lot to be excited about in the Samsung Galaxy S8. One of the big additions is Bixby. The new virtual assistant is even tipped to be accessible on all native apps. Now, a fresh leak gives an insight on how Bixby will work inside the Galaxy S8 camera app.

According to Sammobile, the device will give camera access to Bixby, and it will be able to perform a visual search or even text recognition. On the Samsung Galaxy S8, the camera app will integrate a Bixby button, which the user can activate to do a visual search on the thing that the camera is pointed towards.

The report states that ‘Bixby will analyse the image, and identify objects and text.

Bixby is a result of Samsung’s acquisition of Viv Labs- a company that was responsible for building Siri.
