I never thought this day would come
Samsung has rolled out an update to Bixby on the Galaxy Note 8 and likely on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ too that lets you disable the Bixby button from opening Bixby Home.
How To Turn Off Bixby
You’ll need to update Bixby to get the feature. Just press that Bixby button to open Bixby Home.You should see a prompt to update Bixby (tap the “Update” option in the pop-up)
Once you’re done with the update you’ll see 3 icons close to “Hello Bixby.” They should look like the icons in the GIF above, with a globe icon, settings gear, and 3-dot menu.Tap that settings gear ⛭ and view the new setting appears that allows you to stop the Bixby button from opening Bixby Home.
If it doesn’t work, you can also press and hold the Bixby button to activate Bixby Voice and say, “Bixby Settings.” That should open Bixby settings.
Scroll down and look for the “Bixby key” option. Tap that and then choose the “Don’t open anything” dot to again, disable Bixby Home from opening when the Bixby button is pressed.
It’s not a full Bixby disable though. It only disables Bixby Home from opening when the Bixby button is accidentally pressed. You can still use Bixby through voice or by pressing and holding the Bixby button to activate Bixby Voice.
Tecno Phantom 9 is on its way
Just in case you still haven’t heard, Tecno Mobile posted a teaser of their next addition to the phantom series. This was posted on their Facebook page about last week Tuesday.
The phantom series is considered to be Tecno’s top innovations, their flagship lineup. Always incorporated with the best hardware & features from the Chinese company. The phantom 9 seems to be following the same sequence.
From the teaser, we supposedly got a few hints (not sure if this is the right word) of what to expect before it is finally revealed. And it has a couple of impressive specs I’d say.
Here are the following specifications from the teaser;
• 6.4 inch Full view AMOLED display
• Android 9 – the latest android version
• In-display Fingerprint sensor
• 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM
• AI triple camera with dual front flashlight
• 3500mAh battery
I think Tecno needs to be reminded of what a teaser mean, because at this point, you’ll have to wonder how this is a teaser. Permit me to called it a spoiler instead.
What else do they have in store? They literally listed every spec we care about in a smartphone today. Well, only time will tell.
