Earlier this year Samsung launched the Galaxy Home. For those unfamiliar, the Galaxy Home is a smart speaker in the same lines as the Google Home, Amazon Echo, and Apple HomePod, where it comes with Bixby integrated into the speakers that will allow users to make voice requests, control smart home appliances, and so on.
Now according to a report from SamMobile, they have heard that Samsung could be working on a new Galaxy Home speaker, and surprise surprise, the new rumored model is said to be a “mini” version of the Galaxy Home. The trend of creating “mini” versions of speakers aren’t new and we have seen this adopted by the likes of Google and Amazon.
A smaller version will probably appeal to those who do not need to have a full-fledged speaker, and would prefer a smaller version to act as a hub to control their devices with. It also means that it could potentially be cheaper which means that customers could be encouraged to buy multiple units to place around their home.
In fact Amazon, Google, and Samsung might not be alone in wanting to create “mini” models of their smart speakers. There have been some reports in the past where it is said that Apple could also be considering a mini (and more affordable) version of its HomePod.
