Last year, Samsung launched the Galaxy Home smart speaker. However, it wasn’t too long after the launch that we heard that Samsung could actually have another smart speaker in the works, a smaller version of the Galaxy Home known as the Galaxy Home Mini. Given that Amazon and Google have smaller versions of their speakers, such as the Echo Dot and the Home Mini, this news hardly came as a surprise.
It turns out that the rumors could be true because, in a report from CNET, they have discovered that there is an FCC filing for a device known as the Galaxy Home Mini. Described as an “AI speaker”, the filing also reveals that it is compatible on Wi-Fi b/g/n networks and also uses Bluetooth 4.2.
Unfortunately, apart from the listing, not much else is known about the speaker. However, if we had to venture a guess, chances are it will be largely similar to the Galaxy Home, except smaller. The smaller nature of the speaker also means that it will probably be used mostly for its digital assistant services.
As we said, we’ve seen this approach by Amazon and Google, and even Apple was rumored to launch a HomePod Mini, so chances of us being surprised are a bit low. In any case, we’ll have to wait and see when the device will be launched, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
