DJ Koh, the president of Samsung's mobile division, told CNBC on Wednesday that the company is working on a smart speaker.

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".

The voice assistant is equivalent to Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant, but only supports two languages - US English and South Korean for now.

Rafael Benitez: 'I can not change our transfer situation'
For this, first of all we have to perform, and if I say that, this means everybody in the stands has to feel they invest everything.

Bixby's Spotify integration will allow owners of the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, and the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 to play and discover music using the service through voice commands, being able to simply tell Bixby which song, album, playlist, or station they want to listen and having the digital assistant do the rest. He's shy on details, as is usually the case with teases like this, but he hints that Samsung might announce it "soon". I am already working on it. As I mentioned, I wanted to provide a fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and I want to be moving quite heavily on it.

"Samsung now does not view artificial intelligence speakers as marketable, as the global market is already dominated by unbeatable Amazon and the Korean market is too small to make profits", an anonymous source told The Korea Herald.

Samsung also reportedly expressed concerns over its ability to make a dent in the home speaker market, thanks to this late start and strong products from other competitors. We are not sure if it will be Bixby speaker, but yeah, it should come integrated with Bixby to carry out the smart tasks.
