Reports also claimed that the Bixby development team will not be headed by Samsung Research America vice-chief Chung Eui-suk will now be leading the development of Bixby as well as the tech giant's other artificial intelligence service.

Samsung has yet to confirm if the new version of Bixby will be unveiled next week. On the other hand, the company's chief technology officer Rhee In-jong who used to lead the development of the digital assistant's English and Korean versions will now be the head of the smartphone development. However, the tech company will replace the head of the Bixby department and might roll out the digital assistant's new version next week.
