Samsung Reportedly Developing Its Own Smart Speaker

Samsung smart speaker Samsung Bixby smart speaker Bixby smart speaker Apple HomePod Amazon Echo

Samsung has had quite a few problems getting the voice-powered element of its Bixby smart assistant ready for Galaxy S8 consumers in the United States after launching the device months ago. Do any of you have a smart speaker like the Amazon Echo?

On Tuesday, as reported by a representative of the South Korean original equipment manufacturer (OEM) the English version of Bixby was detained over big data issues, which was cause of Samsung's incapability to gather or accumulate the data it had wished for. It means that the company shall be taking enough time before coming up with the Bixby speaker.

According to the report, such a device (codenamed "Vega") has been in the works for over a year, and it's still not certain when it will come out.

Whatever the reason may be, The Wall Street Journal claimed a full Bixby release in the USA won't arrive "before the second half of July". The next in line is Apple's Siri-powered HomePod that would debut in December.

A new report from The Wall Street Journal claims Samsung is working on its own voice-controlled home speaker to compete with the likes of the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and other devices that will be launched over the next few months and years. Samsung said that Bixby would be introduced after the second half of July.

In March Jean-Daniel Ayme, Samsung's corporate vice president for mobile in Europe, told CNBC that Bixby's integration with its flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 phone would set it apart from competitors. One of the most important areas of potential for smart speakers is fostering tighter functionality with users' smartphones.
