The holiday season has just ended and rumors of the newest technology advancements coming into the market have already surfaced. Most recently it has been reported by various PR agencies as well as news outlets that Samsung is working on a new version of the Galaxy Home.
The original Galaxy Home Speaker has not even hit the general market as of yet but it has been touted as being as good as the Google and Amazon products that are already available. The Galaxy Home will most likely have Bixby speakers, eight microphones, and extensive technology but the problem Samsung is seeing is that it might be at a price point too high for market demand which is why technology experts have said they are developing the less expensive version.
Some reports are calling this new product the Samsung Galaxy Home Mini which can be expected to have less technology options and most likely not the same amount of speakers. This product is expected to be more affordable and compete with similar products launched by Amazon and Google.
The goal for Samsung is to capture some of the remaining market share after loyal Amazon and Google buyers purchase their products. That would leave Samsung fighting with Apple and Sonos One to fulfill only about a 12% demand for those in the market looking for a home virtual assistant.
The Consumer Electronics Show, or CES is taking place in Vegas in just a few short days and most technology insiders are hearing that among all the greatest technology on display during this show, Samsung will have a prominent showing by sharing with consumers their more cost effective version of the Galaxy Home. The only thing anyone knows for sure about this secret project is that it will be available only in black and that it is sure to be competitive within the already saturated virtual personal assistant industry.
