Samsung Just Announced Its New Smart Speaker With Bixby AI
Recently, the South Korean giant Samsung presents its own smart speaker with its own and well-known virtual assistant, of course, Bixby. The goal is to operate in the market where the tech giant Apple, the tech giant Google, and the well-known giant e-commerce website Amazon have been working for some time, with the promise of better audio quality.
Moreover, privately and almost silently, the tech giant Apple has also started a beta program for its smart speaker, known as HomePod. The software, according to a well-known media platform, has been delivered to employees of the company itself, who return feedback on the new features.
HomePod OS 12, as this new software has been dubbed, allows you to make phone calls from your own computer – taking advantage of the iPhone’s cellular connection and the six loudspeaker microphones.
While the tech giant Google’s well-known smart speaker, of course, Google Home, one of its main rivals, offers this possibility since 2017, although only in some markets.
Another novelty of HomePod OS 12 is the possibility of establishing several timers simultaneously, something that the brand’s customers, of course, the customers of the tech giant Apple have claimed since the official launch of its smart speaker. Moreover, the smart speakers like Alexa, from the giant e-commerce website Amazon, already have this feature.
However, one of the most interesting references found is related to the languages. As the new beta version has several implications for the new languages.
In addition to the aforementioned, HomePod OS 12 includes:-
- The possibility of making group audio calls through FaceTime Audio.
- ‘Fix Wi-Fi’ button, which connects the HomePod to the same Wi-Fi network as the iPhone – when it has changed from the original one.
- Although Apple has not released any information regarding HomePod OS 12, the most sensible option would be for the new software version to reach commercial teams starting in the fall along with the iOS 12, macOS Mojave and watchOS 5.
But, apart from all these things, as we told you all earlier that the South Korean giant Samsung announced its expected entry into the smart speaker market with Galaxy Home.
It is a high-end unit aimed at competing head-to-head with the tech giant Apple’s HomePod while staying away from competitors such as the giant e-commerce website Amazon’s Echo and the tech giant Google’s, Google Home thanks to its promise of higher quality audio.
The device surprises from the aesthetic, since it is wrapped in wire mesh and is supported by three robust metal legs. The upper part, on the other hand, is flat with control buttons to skip tracks and change the volume.
Hence, the overall shape of the smart speaker of the South Korean giant Samsung, of course, the Galaxy Home simply looks like a vase or another piece of decoration which can be easily framed in any room.
As it is clearly visible that its spine is wrapped in fabric and has three metal feet as we told earlier and these not change the quality of sound reproduction.
The giant South Korean electronics manufacturer, of course, Samsung highlighted that its new smart speaker, of course, Galaxy Home can offer surround sound audio thanks to its six built-in speakers and a subwoofer as we mentioned earlier. In addition, it also includes eight far-field microphones to detect voice inputs.
It is worth mentioning that the South Korean giant, of course, Samsung did not disclose many details related to this since it will share more of its characteristics in a conference of developers at the beginning of November. For now, there is no confirmed date of release to the market, as well as the final price that will be offered in the markets in which it will be marketed.
Moreover, this Samsung product, of course, the Galaxy Home is still only under development and in November at the conference of programmers, more details on this Galaxy Home will be given.
