There has been talk about Samsung’s new virtual assistant Bixby, expected to debut on the Samsung Galaxy S8. Late last year, we told you that Bixby will be deeply integrated into native apps. One of these apps will apparently be Samsung Pay Mini, which is a “stripped-down” version of Samsung’s mobile payment system. Samsung Pay Mini is expected to be available to make online payments only, unlike the regular version of the feature which also takes care of payments for transactions made in physical stores.
Proof of Bixby’s existence and its integration with Samsung Pay Mini is seemingly confirmed by an image found on Samsung’s own website. It appears on a page called Samsung Pay Beta and shows various options available for Samsung Pay including “Mini,” and “Bixby.”
The Samsung Galaxy S8 is expected to be unveiled on April 18th. Originally slotted for a introduction at MWC in Barcelona next month, Samsung reportedly had to delay the event so that it could pack the device with Qualcomm’s latest and greatest chipset, the Snapdragon 835.
