We previously heard a rumor about a new Samsung Bixby Speaker to take on the Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple HomePod devices and now Samsung has confirmed its existence.
Speaking at the launch of their new Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, Samsung mobile president, DJ Koh confirmed their new Bixby powered speakers.
“Maybe soon we will announce it. I am already working on it,” Koh told CNBC in an interview. “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,” Koh said.
A previous rumor had said that Samsung will be waiting until next year to launch their new Bixby speaker. As yet there are no many details about the device.
