It’s only a matter of time Samsung makes a smart speaker, and the time is now. Alongside the Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy Watch, the South Korean tech giant has today also unveiled the Galaxy Home, a high-end smart speaker that works with the company’s Bixby smart assistant.
Looking like a little vase with three metal legs, the Galaxy Home has six AKG-tuned speakers and a subwoofer. “Hi, Bixby” is the hotword to activate the assistant, and according to Samsung, the speaker is able to pick up your voice even from across the room thanks to eight far-field mics. It also has a SoundSteer tech for automatically adjusting sound output based on where it’s placed in the room.
