Samsung's smart speaker is said to be powered by its AI assistant, Bixby and is now being developed under a project codenamed Vega.

Not one to be left out, Samsung will reportedly plonk its fledgling personal assistant Bixby into a smart speaker. It's nice to see that they're catching on.

According to the report, such a device (codenamed "Vega") has been in the works for over a year, and it's still not certain when it will come out. Actually the patent was filed in December 2015, so it's been well over a year.

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba has said that it also plans to introduce its own device powered by voice-recognition technology. Competition is heating up in the market with Apple and Microsoft already working hard to catch up to Amazon's lead. With Bixby speaker, Samsung will be joining the ranks of smart home speakers like Google Home and Amazon Echo.

Remember, Samsung was supposed to launch a full version of Bixby's voice features in the U.S. by springtime, but that obviously didn't happen. "The integration we will have is deeper than anybody else will be able to do", he said. "In the camera you can use Bixby vision without going out of the camera interface, that is something that will be different". If not as per Wall Street Journal, Samsung would not get profit by the end of 2017.
