According to an inside source speaking with The Wall Street Journal, Samsung's smart speaker project is now codenamed Vega (not to be confused with AMD's GPU architecture). This would explain the reason behind launching the Bixby Voice beta program, but the service still needs to be developed so it can actually begin competing with Google's Assistant, Apple's Siri, and Amazon's Alexa.
There have been a few reports about why this delay is happening, all of which seem to be pointing towards a lack of resources in translating the digital assistant into English from Samsung's native Korean. The report also states that the Bixby-powered smart speaker - codenamed "Vega" - has yet to finesse most of its feature set. The priority for Samsung is to make Bixby's English version available for the Galaxy S8. Samsung's smart speaker is said to be powered by its AI assistant, Bixby and is now being developed under a project codenamed Vega. These are just the existing players, the rest of the competition would be coming with Microsoft's Cortana-based speaker that would launch in the fall, this year.
Bixby is Samsung's very own AI assistant. It has come to the news that Bixby is stumbling with grammatical issues and nuances of the English language.
Originally shown off alongside the Galaxy S8 at its launch, Samsung then admitted that Bixby Voice would not debut on the smartphone.
What's your take on the Bixby speaker? Of course this is crucial to a smart speaker device as it won't have manual input or a touchscreen, at least not as a primary control.
