Samsung to come up with its own smart speaker

Hello, we meet again, well not literally but figuratively. It is always nice to know that I am not the only one who closely keeps a tab on the recent developments taking place in the tech world. Without any further ado let us get down to business.

We have come to know that Samsung has started working on a new venture altogether. It is spreading its reach to the smart speaker market. This news was confirmed by DJ Koh who is the president of Samsung’s mobile division, confirmed by CNBC today at the Galaxy Note 8 event. The exact launch dates have not yet been finalised, but the company said it would come out sooner than later. Koh is already burning the midnight oil to see the execution of the project, he says that he wants to create a “fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and [he] want[s] to be moving quite heavily on it.”

It is still not made sure that the speakers would feature the company’s new digital assistant, Bixby or not. Only time will the judge of this query. Bixby has already been incorporated to its connected refrigerators. The company is planning to gradually install in its product portfolio which includes TVs and other wearables. Since we are on the topic, it would be only natural to point out the loophole in this modus operando, Bixby isn’t as good and efficient as Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri. They have been in the market for quite a while. Bixby will have a lot of catching up to do in those terms. The expansion of the assistant has been made to over 200 countries.

Coming back to the topic, the process has already started, but the results seem to be far for the instant. This news is enough to get all the true and loyal fans of Samsung to get pumped and excited. To some extent, it has even caught my fancy. Let us see what the speakers are really like. Will they have an impeccable sound quality? How will it be different from other speakers who already are successful in the market? I guess we will have to wait for these questions to be answered.

Of course, a review of the speakers will be published here. Please stay tuned in more such news. And if you have any doubts or query please feel free to ping me. You can do that by leaving a comment or by emailing your doubt to me. I would be happy to reply to those.

Until next time!
