Bixby hits the market well after Apple's Siri, Microsoft's Cortana, Amazon's Alexa, and Google's Assistant.

The smart speaker space is about to get a lot more crowded.

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. He also confirmed the product would launch "soon".

Would you be interested in a Samsung-branded smart speaker featuring Bixby? "Maybe soon we will announce it". It's a major win for Bixby, as the assistant has suffered from multiple delays and a lack of integrations lately. Samsung had to admit that there was lacuna in the coordination between the 200-strong technical team based out of United States and the one back in South Korea. "In the future, Bixby will have the learning power to offer more intelligent and personalized interactions and seamless connections across more devices".

Aside from Samsung apps and system settings, Bixby is also compatible with the likes of WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube, Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, Uber and Google Play Music. Koh said Samsung wants to create a "fruitful user experience at home with Samsung devices, and [he] want [s] to be moving quite heavily on it". It's pretty much a safe bet, though one can never assume. Support for other languages, devices, and third-party apps are expected to expand over time, Samsung added. So why not a smart speaker?
