It’s hard to believe that Samsung may be successful on the smart speaker market with a device powered by Bixby, but the South Korean company plans to launch a new product in this category next year.

Many of you probably don’t know that Samsung showcased a premium smart speaker called Galaxy Home several months ago, but that’s probably because the smart speaker hasn’t yet made it to market.

Although Samsung didn’t announce how much the Galaxy Home will cost, it’s more likely that the smart speaker would be direct Apple HomePod competitor rather than a Google Home or Amazon Echo rival.

In an attempt to bring its smart speaker to more affordable prices, Samsung is working on smaller, cheaper Galaxy Home, SamMobile reports. Unlike the original Galaxy Home, the smaller version is expected to pack fewer microphones and premium features.

The smart speaker will still be powered by Bixby, but it will aim the mid-range tier rather than the premium one. Even so, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Home Mini will have a hard time competing with Google Home and Amazon Echo, which are among the best-selling smart speakers on the market, and Bixby doesn’t help either.
