Samsung is a leading smartphone brand, that launches very unique, premium, and great looking smartphones year by year.
As innovations went improving, Samsung invented their own voice assistant, replaced the Samsung smartphone “Power Button” with the “Bixby” voice assistant.
How to Switch off / Restart Samsung Smartphones
In the new models, if you press the power button, it works like the normal wake-up and lock function.
But if you long-press the power key, it launches Bixby instead of shutting down or rebooting the system. No matter how long you hold it, this button does not turn off the phone it will just open Bixby.
