Samsung prepares smart speaker with Bixby - report

Wednesday 5 July 2017 | 08:57 CET | News
Samsung is working on its own smart speaker, powered by the Bixby digital assistant, the Wall Street Journal reports. People familiar with the matter said the expected launch of the device is not yet known, as Samsung is still working on preparing Bixby for languages other than Korean and other specifications of the speaker are yet to be decided. The project, internally code-named 'Vega', has been underway for more than a year, the report said.
