Samsung may announce Bixby-powered BT earphones at Galaxy Note8 launch

Samsung is slowly building up an ecosystem of devices powered by its Bixby virtual assistant, and the new rumored device is a pair of Bluetooth earphones.

According to ETNews, Samsung is reportedly working on a pair of Bluetooth earphones powered by Bixby. It might be announced alongside the Galaxy Note8 on August 23. The company is still deciding whether to sell the earphones separately, or bundle it with the Galaxy Note8. The Bixby-powered earphones could feature a 'Noise Blocking' technology where external noise is blocked to improve call quality.

Besides this pair of earphones, Samsung is also rumored to be working on a news app with podcasts and Bixby Voice, and a Bixby-powered smart speaker, although the latter might not be launched anytime soon. As Bixby Voice is currently only supported in the U.S. and South Korea, these devices might only be available in these two markets at launch.
