Samsung's DJ Koh Confirms, a Smart Speaker is Coming

Samsung has released their long-awaited voice assistant Bixby, in Australia 

But, technically, he didn't specify whether Samsung's speaker will feature Bixby.

DJ Koh, the president of Samsung's mobile division, said a smart speaker was on the way.

Of course, Koh didn't provide any real details about the device, but he did seem pretty confident in it, saying that he has already "started on it" and that Samsung envisions a "a fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices".

Samsung expanded its digital personal assistant Bixby to over 200 countries and territories globally on Tuesday, as it looks to step up its challenge to rival products like Amazon Alexa and Apple Siri.

It did not provide further details of the offer. "There was no amount mentioned", said Nel, flanked by Engels and her mother. It is understood that fears of isolation in the region and on the continent have forced officials into a hard position.

Ultimately, Samsung would want to make Bixby a ideal digital assistant so that it can compete on level with Amazon's Alexa and Google Assistant, besides SIRI. The company confirmed that Bixby will soon get Spotify support.

Samsung appears to be preparing to join the voice-assisted speakers market. The forthcoming Samsung smart speaker will compete with the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod.

Samsung appears to have overcome challenges with Bixby, which has now been expanded to and is functional in over 200 countries which include the United Kingdom and Canada. After confirming a new Gear S smartwatch will be unveiled on August 30, the South Korean company now claims a smart speaker is in the works as well. We are not sure if it will be Bixby speaker, but yeah, it should come integrated with Bixby to carry out the smart tasks. Support for other languages, devices, and third-party apps are expected to expand over time, Samsung added.
