Tipster claims Samsung is working on a new virtual assistant

Samsung Galaxy S7 - Snapdragon 820

According to a new report coming from a self proclaimed #Samsung tipster, the Korean manufacturer is currently working on a personal assistant for its mobile devices. While not much is revealed about the software side of things, it is being mentioned that this will be loosely based off the company’s S Voice application, which has served the duties of a voice assistant in previous Samsung phones.

Knowing how Samsung is banking on its upcoming flagship to dominate the high end mobile segment, we’re not surprised with the company’s insistence to bring out features like these to make their offerings more attractive to the customers. At this point however, we’re putting this next to the unconfirmed pile as it’s still too early to tell.

The tipster further mentions that there will be search engine integration with this voice assistant, which is kind of a prerequisite for modern virtual assistants. Perhaps we’ll get to learn more about this new voice assistant during the company’s February 2016 launch event of the Galaxy S7.
