Will we ever be Samsung Galaxy Home? In August 2018, the company announced its Bixby powered speaker next to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9but here we are nine months later without even as much as a concrete issue date.
Samsung gave us A look at the Galaxy Home in November 2018, but has given no hints on & # 39; an issue date. In early 2019, Samsung said the device would land in April. It missed the date with little notice. Then the company said it would land by the end of June 2019. But now we have a word from Samsung CEO, Hyun-suk Kim (via The Korea Herald) said that the speaker will not even land in the third quarter of this year.
"The Galaxy Home speaker, which will be the centerpiece of Samsung's home appliances, is scheduled to launch in the middle of the second half of the year," Kim said. The Korea Herald confirmed that, according to other Samsung CEOs, "middle-second half of the year" refers to the third quarter of 2019.
That means it can be late as late September before we see the smart speaker, which means it can start a full year after Samsung announced it. How strange would it be if Samsung started the Galaxy Home with its anticipated opportunity for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10? It would be like the day of hell.
Every day, the smart speaker market is becoming increasingly difficult to enter. Right now, Google and Amazon own the landscape, not even Apple able to dive with its duration HomePod. With Samsung's push for the Galaxy Home to be a high-end audio machine, coupled with the notion that the smart speaker will probably not appear. Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant, it is likely to be difficult to sell when it lands.
