Samsung could be preparing to launch a new smart home speaker based on the Bixby digital assistant.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Samsung may launch a rival to Amazon's Echo and Google's Home smart assistant speakers.

WSJ says it has seen a patent for the speaker, which was filed in November of 2017.

The speaker will include a touch screen display, with directional speakers that can point at the user. The cameras will also be equipped with facial recognition technology.

The report says the speaker will cost around $300, and that it may be launched on 9th August when Samsung unveils the new Galaxy Note smartphone.
