  • Samsung smart speaker reportedly on the way

Patently Apple posted a report on July 05 titled "Samsung to launch their new Smart Speaker Device with "Bixby" at CES 2018 in a Familiar Form Factor".

In an interview ahead of Samsung's Galaxy Note phone launch, DJ Koh, the president of Samsung's mobile division, said a smart speaker is on the way. That timeline isn't specific, but at least it's something.

Is a Bixby-powered smart speaker something that interests you? While Bixby suffered a delayed rollout and only formally launched earlier this summer, the assistant is slated to roll out globally soon. Bixby is now available in more than 200 countries, which means that Samsung will get more services support onboard. The Journal said the speaker, code-named Vega, has been in the works for more than a year but many features and specifications are still being decided.

"In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices", he added. So why not a smart speaker?

Samsung is reportedly close to launching a smart speaker to compete with Amazon's Echo and others.

With smart home tech and the Internet of Things, users can perform tasks like controlling lights or their home TVs.

Originally set to roll out in the US and South Korea in the spring with the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus flagship phones, Bixby's arrival was delayed until July. Upcoming products include models from Microsoft and Harman Kardon that feature its Cortana virtual assistant and the Siri-powered Apple HomePod.
