Several months ago Samsung announced the Galaxy Home which is basically Samsung’s take on the smart speaker. However what Samsung did not mention during the announcement was when the device would launch, but the good news is that it looks like we could be getting pretty close to a release.
This is thanks to a recent sighting at the FCC where the device was spotted receiving its certification. For those unfamiliar with the process, for devices to be sold in the US, they need to pass through the FCC first. While an FCC sighting doesn’t necessarily give us a release date, the fact that it was spotted at the FCC at least lets us know that Samsung has cleared one of the necessary hurdles.
That being said, it is unclear as to how well the speakers will be received. Right now companies like Amazon and Google more or less command the majority of the market share thanks to them being early to market. Apple was a bit late to the game and with the price of the HomePod, it also made adopting it difficult.
Samsung’s Bixby has also been criticized in the past about not being as good as it should, so like we said, it is unclear as to how it will fare. In any case we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information about its release, so check back with us at a later date for more details regarding availability.
