Bixby fans, fear not! Galaxy Home, Samsung’s Bixby-powered smart speaker that was first announced last year, is still happening. Samsung didn’t announce availability or pricing for the speaker during this week’s Unpacked event, but we have learned via The Verge that the company is still working to “refine and enhance” the device.
Samsung’s own CEO said earlier this year that the speaker should hit shelves during Q3 2019, but given Samsung didn’t even mention the device this week, that seems unlikely.
When and if this thing does launch, Samsung detailed that it’s capable of 360-degree sound with AKG speakers, features eight far-field microphones for hearing user commands from a solid distance and over loud noise, and of course, has Bixby smarts for your digital assistant needs.
If Galaxy Home doesn’t launch by the 2019 holiday shopping season, I’d stick a fork in it.
