And now, it appears to have a name: Bixby.
Samsung filed a trademark in South Korea for “Bixby” in October, for a “computer software for personal information management” — more specifically, “computer application software for smartphones, mobile telephones, portable computers and tablet computers … used to operate voice recognition system[s] … [and enable] hands-free use of a mobile phone through voice recognition.”
