And now there are some new rumors and leaks to all to that list that brings into light new details including icons, menus and Bixby. Apart from the S-Pen with Bluetooth, new colors and DeX interface, exclusive launch with Fortnite, there are some new rumored details out on Twitter.
The biggest among them is that Samsung might be introducing the next generation of its AI which is called Bixby 2.0. And it will probably come with an upgraded UI for the Bixby screen.

Besides this, there will also be a new S-Pen menu which could possibly mean a redesign of the floating Air Command menu. The Air Command has looked pretty much the same for a while now and sure needs a redesign. On top of that if the S-Pen does have Bluetooth incorporated in it, there might be room for it to do new things which would essentially need new options.

And lastly, the tweet says that there will be new gestures as well, which may not mean much to a previous Galaxy Note series user since it never did have much use for it. But now with Android P integrating its new gesture features, Samsung seems keen to incorporate them.
