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). The company previously said that the English-language version of the digital assistant would be ready by spring, but one of the sources added that Samsung has internally expressed doubts about those voice features being ready before the second half of July.

We've heard before that Samsung is working on a Bixby-powered smart speaker, but for the first time in a while, more details are surfacing.

Until then, the Bixby speaker seems like a far-fetched reality for Samsung. Microsoft made a deal with Harman International to develop the voice-controlled technology for the Redmond software company's forthcoming smart speaker.
