We first heard about Bixby back in December, with Samsung unintentionally confirming the AI assistant shortly after, and with today's reveal of what could possibly be the logo, all that's left is for the company to showcase it in action, possibly in March or April when the Galaxy S8 will be announced.
Samsung filed a trademark application on Feb 5 with the European Trade Mark and Design Network for Bixby’s logo. As you can see in the document (with application number 016343931) below, the logo resembles a ‘B’ as well as the numerical ’8′. The trademark application’s description closely matches to that of Bixby’s trademark application. So, it's highly likely the logo is for Bixby, which is expected to debut with the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus.
In addition, over at SamMobile, they claim to have confirmed that Bixby will offer support for voice commands in English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese Latin, Spanish, and Spanish Latin languages.
Samsung is apparently also readying something called Samsung Hello, which might be an AI-powered Google Now-like service for the Galaxy S8 and the S8 Plus that could compliment Bixby, or be something entirely separate, right now we just don't know until South Korean smartphone maker confirms all of these findings in a month or two.
What do you think about Bixby’s logo? Let us know in the comments below.
