The news comes shortly after Samsung rolled out its artificial intelligence (AI) assistant to over 200 countries following numerous delays caused by technical issues which the tech giant encountered during its development. Otherwise, it's also possible to set a wake-up command, such as "Hi Bixby". We are not sure if it will be Bixby speaker, but yeah, it should come integrated with Bixby to carry out the smart tasks.

In South Korea, the feature has 1.3 million users and has accumulated 250 million voice commands so far.

"The expansion of Bixby's voice capabilities is an initial step in the continued rollout of Bixby functionality".

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".

But, technically, he didn't specify whether Samsung's speaker will feature Bixby. Koh said Samsung wants to create a "fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and [he] want [s] to be moving quite heavily on it". The forthcoming Samsung smart speaker will compete with the Amazon Echo, Google Home, and Apple HomePod. It will be interesting to see how consumers react to Samsung's iteration of smart speakers.

Koh did not share details about the price or appearance of the speaker or whether it will use Samsung's Bixby intelligent assistant, which expanded to 200 markets worldwide earlier this week, but Samsung has previously expressed an intention to put Bixby inside all its appliances.
