Back in August, Samsung has announced a Bixby-powered Galaxy Home smart speaker which is a premium device that could give competition to Apple’s HomePod and the Amazon Echo Plus. The release date and availibilty of this device are still unknown while the company is reportedly planning a second Bixby-powered Home Smart speaker according to some sources.
As per the report of SamMobile, which claims that Samsung will release another device next year along with Galaxy Home smart speaker. Moreover, the Bixby speaker comes in black and gives a more affordable option which can compete with other cheaper Smart speakers. The model number of this Second device is “SM-V310” whereas Galaxy Home’s holds the model number SM-V510.
The specs and features of lower-end Bixby-powered Home Smart speaker are not confirmed, but presumably, it will have fewer specs from the main Galaxy Home smart speakers which the company has announced earlier such as six built-in speakers, a subwoofer, and eight microphones. But it will guarantee run on Bixby 2.0 which is the next generation version of Bixby revealed at Mobile World Congress 2018 in March.
Bixby 2.0 version tend to boast a better natural language process and faster response times than its previous version, along with built-in noise reduction tech. Though, The device being Cheaper could set ways in the market which is already crowded with well-established companies like Google and Amazon who also offer devices powered by Smart assistant which users already know are reliable.
Samsung has revealed very little about the working of its new devices but as we know CES 2019 just around the corner so it’s more likely that the company will show their presence and also revealed more information at the event.
Google Home has Google Home Mini, Amazon’s Echo has the Echo Dot and Samsung’s Bixby-driven smart speaker the Galaxy Home will debut sometime in 2019.
