Samsung reportedly prepping Bixby 2.0 announcement next week

Samsung's Bixby 2.0 development is underway with a new exec at the helm

Users of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus were disappointed by Samsung's Bixby virtual assistant due to its dedicated button.

But the big announcement here could be in the form of a new version of Bixby. Chung has been with Samsung for a bit and has previously worked in research roles at Samsung.

The South Korean tech firm remains steadfast in its efforts in the artificial intelligence technology despite being regarded as being behind Apple's Siri and Google [VIDEO] Assistant. This button, which lacks any official remapping ability and until recently couldn't even be disabled, is easy to press accidentally.

Bixby 2.0 could potentially be on its way to the Galaxy S9 and other flagship Samsung phones, as the South Korean tech giant has appointed a new exec to oversee the second-generation virtual assistant.

However, the company had problems adding Bixby digital assistant's English language support. They are thought to offer more developer participation going forward, as well as expand into additional third party services and products, including those that aren't smartphones.

Former vice chief of Samsung Research in America, Chung Eui-suk, is now the head of Samsung's service intelligence group at its headquarters in South Korea, having been appointed to over see the next steps for Bixby which will aim to reverse the lacklustre response the virtual assistant has had, according to the Korean Herald. Viv is a global artificial intelligence platform comprised of former Apple employees who generated Siri AI assistant which was purchased by Samsung past year.
