Samsung is creating a smart speaker after all

Back in July, it was reported that Samsung was manufacturing a Bixby-enabled smart speaker, following hot on the heels of Apple announcing a smart speaker and Google and Amazon contributing to the market, too. It didn’t take long before another report said that Samsung might not be making a smart speaker after all. But the rollercoaster isn’t quite finished.

Today, following the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 8, the President of Samsung’s Mobile Division, DJ Koh, confirmed to CNBC that Samsung is indeed making a smart speaker.

Of course, Koh didn’t provide any real details about the device, but he did seem pretty confident in it, saying that he has already “started on it” and that Samsung envisions a “a fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices.” A smart speaker would certainly be one device that users could take advantage of, so it will be interesting to see what Samsung creates.
