Samsung has already announced the Galaxy Home smart speaker, and it appears the South Korean tech giant could already be working on another device in the new series. The Galaxy Home is expected to be a premium-level device, but in a market saturated with budget-accessible speakers, it seems Samsung has taken note and is preparing a “mini” version of its upcoming smart speaker.

Samsung revealed the Galaxy Home smart speaker at its Unpacked Event in August. The new addition to the manufacturer’s range of products is expected to feature six speakers, eight microphones, a subwoofer, and Bixby integration. It is believed this premium speaker will be priced at a similar level to Apple’s HomePod, which is currently US$349.

A report from SamMobile claims that Samsung is also targeting consumers on a tighter budget with a cheaper version of the smart speaker. Unfortunately, there is very little information available about this potential additional variant to the Galaxy Home series, apart from its model number (SM-V310) and the fact it will come in black. The already announced premium Samsung smart speaker has the model number SM-V510.

No release date has been given for the Galaxy Home smart speaker (SM-V510), but it is possible Samsung will reveal more at CES 2019. The company has brought AKG by Harman on board to fine-tune the audio, and the speaker's distinctive vase-shape design will certainly help it stand out from an already packed crowd.
