The ad apparently shows a man looking at the OnePlus 5 box, which is off camera and is possibly …

On the Harman Kardon Invoke, that job belongs to Cortana; on Google Home, well, you probably can figure that one out. So Siri handles the same chores that Alexa and Google Assistant are in charge of for …
