Samsung’s Galaxy Home smart speaker coming soon

Do any of you guys remember the Samsung’s Bixby-powered Galaxy Home smart speaker, which Samsung introduced to compete with Amazon’s Echo?

This smart speaker was announced by the company last year in August without any official release date in their announcement. However, the time has finally come, well kind of.

Following the Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Francisco last week, where the company introduced to the world its new series of Galaxy S smartphones like S10e, S10, S10+ and S10 5G along with a foldable phone; the company also announced that these Galaxy Home Smart Speakers will be up for launch in the mid of 2019.

DJ Koh; the head of Samsung’s mobile division, was more specific about the new speakers when he told CNET, “By April”.

Other than this, he did not share any more details on the release date and he also did not shed any light as to how much will this Smart Speaker cost.

Google Assistant and Alexa Powered Smart Speakers:-

While the news seems great, it is really that much of hype after many homes around the globe have already been invaded by the Google Assistant and Alexa-powered smart speakers.

Google also released a statement in which they said that they have sold nearly 50 million of these speakers which have been used on over 1 billion devices.

As for Alexa powered Amazon Echo; Amazon has not released an official unit sale of their speakers but they said that they have sold nearly ‘tens of millions’ of these speakers which have been sued on over 100 million devices.

The question is can Samsung actually catch up in this race of Smart Speakers where Google and Amazon have already made a stronghold? Or the question can Samsung really make a difference after their universally loathed Bixby?

Nowadays even Apple is struggling to sell their “HomePods” but this has something to do with their high price tags and their lacking ability to only connect with music services like Apple Music, and weak Siri intelligence.
