Samsung almost had a virtual assistant named Samantha — Sam for short. The animated figure is garnering a lot of attention for her looks.

According to Polygon, a design firm named Lightfarm created these images with a marketing company owned by Samsung, but the product did not become part of any campaign. Regardless, internet users can’t stop talking about her.

The virtual assistant’s perky-looking demeanor and charm has prompted many to make memes about her and the future of Samsung.

Some predict the end of iPhone’s reign.
