Samsung Pay Mini and Bixby is now official

10 January, 2017 Samsung

Ending all rumors and speculations, Samsung has indirectly confirmed the existence of two things yesterday. The first is of course Bixby; the digital AI based voice assistant, which will presumably debut with the Galaxy S8. Samsung Pay Mini is the second premature revelation that was made, confirming the existence of the independent online payment service.

As you can probably guess, Samsung Pay Mini is a minimalistic version of Samsung Pay. It can only be used to make payments via the internet on websites, unlike its bigger brother Samsung Pay, which has a much larger scope in that department. The voice assistant Bixby will work in tandem with the payment service to presumably enable voice-based financial transactions.

Even though we are stating that these have been confirmed by Samsung themselves, they are not yet "official" in the true sense of the term. The "confirmations" were gathered from the Samsung Pay Beta page on the company's own website, after these two were mentioned in certain references. We are excited to see Bixby in action and check out at least some of what the AI assistant can do when Samsung (reportedly) reveals the S8 at the MWC Barcelona in February.
