Samsung’s smart home speaker is Galaxy Home.

At Samsung’s Unpacked 2018 event earlier today, Samsung’s new smart speaker was revealed; the Galaxy Home. Only basic information was shared and here’s what they are.

6 multi directional speakers by AKG.

The Galaxy Home will run on Bixby (voice assistant) and will work with Samsung Smart Things (smart home). So as you can imagine, you would be able to give voice commands to smart home devices. Partnering with AKG for their speakers, the Galaxy Home will have 6 multi directional speakers and 1 downward facing subwoofer. And detecting your voice commands are 8 far field voice recognition microphones. One nice feature mentioned is Soundsteer. Say “Hi Bixby, soundsteer” and whatever is playing on the speaker will be focused to you.
