Recently we heard that Samsung’s rumored smart speaker with Bixby built into it might have been cancelled. Apparently Samsung doesn’t think that such devices are marketable, but it looks like Samsung’s ambition to put Bixby into other products is still going on strong, at least according to a report from ET News.
According to the report, it has been rumored that Samsung could be looking to develop a Bluetooth headset with Bixby built into it. The report claims that Samsung has been working with another South Korean company on developing the device, and that it could be unveiled next month alongside the Note 8, which has been confirmed for an end of August announcement.
The report goes on to add that Samsung is still trying to decide whether or not this particular headset could be provided as a bundle with the Note 8, or if they should sell it as a separate accessory. While we have no idea if this report is accurate or what the headset looks like, it’s hard not to draw comparisons with Apple’s AirPods.
Recently an analyst has suggested that Appel’s AirPods could eventually become bigger than the Apple Watch, so perhaps Samsung is aiming for something similar. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but would a set of headphones with Bixby built into them be something you might be interested in?
