Samsung could unveil Bixby version 2.0 next week

We've already seen Bixby make its way to Samsung's incoming Gear IconX wireless earbuds, but we've yet to see the assistant appear on any of Samsung's smartwatches.

Bixby arrived with the Galaxy S8 handsets, but wasn't complete upon the model's launch for many users. Of course, it also points out that the English version of Bixby was delayed for a couple of months. News out for South Korea today suggests that some Bixby improvements could be coming soon, though.

Samsung is hosting its developer conference in San Francisco next week and it may act as the showcase for Bixby 2.0, according to a report from the Korea Herald.

The first of these is further integration with third-party services.

Now the Korea Herald reports Samsung is set to release version 2.0 of Bixby, with significantly improved features.

Samsung has helped a great deal to promote the current trend of smartphones with almost bezel-free displays, thanks to the success of the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, and more recently the Galaxy Note 8.

Leading up to Bixby 2.0's announcement, Samsung has also appointed Chung Eui-suk as the head of service intelligence for future development of Bixby.

Compounding the problem is Samsung's in-your-face attempt to get its customers to use Bixby, namely the dedicated button found on the Galaxy S8 phones.

Bixby might not ever become as popular or powerful as Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa, but with a new exec leading the charge and a big 2.0 release less than a week away, it certainly seems like Samsung is going to try it's best to do so. Chung has been with Samsung for a bit and has previously worked in research roles at Samsung.
