According to the latest reports by etnews, the South Korean manufacturer Samsung is working on wireless earphones with Bixby integration. Then it would make it possible to call or control your smartphone through the Bixby earbuds. Samsung is likely to introduce the earphones on August 23 together with the Galaxy Note 8.

In 2016, Samsung launched the Gear IconX, the first complete wireless headset from the manufacturer. The Gear IconX is a very impeccable and eye-catching headset, but users complain about the short battery life. Nevertheless, Samsung would like to try again to launch a new wireless headset, but this time with the integration of virtual assistant Bixby. This makes it possible to activate and operate Bixby directly with the earphones.

With the new headset, Samsung would like to compete directly with Apple AirPods, which has integration with Siri. For example, you can activate Siri by clicking on the side of the AirPods, after which you can use Siri to control your music.

It is still not clear whether the headphones in question will be in Note 8 or will be marketed as a standalone device. The source SamMobile says that the product is not yet finalized, so there's a chance that its launch will be delayed.
