Samsung working on mini Galaxy Home

Samsung is working on a cheaper version of its Galaxy Home speaker.

The tech giants haven't yet released the original Galaxy Home speaker that was announced back in August, but they are now pushing forward with plans for a smaller version of the device, which will reportedly be more affordable to consumers wanting a speaker that's a little less flashy.

Galaxy Home will be competing with other devices like Amazon's Echo line and Google Home, both of which have affordable options in the form of the Echo Dot and Google Home Mini respectively, and so Samsung's smaller device will fill the gap in the market to compete with those brands.

According to Gizmodo, not much information is known about the smaller Galaxy Home, other than the model number - SM-V310, which is smaller than the original product's number of SM-V510 - and that the speaker will be black in colour.

The Galaxy Home was announced in August as a device containing eight speakers and audio that can optimise itself to where you currently are in the home, although potential buyers were disappointed somewhat by the company's decision to feature Bixby as the voice feature, rather than Google Assistant.

Gizmodo reports the company could unveil more detailed plans for the smaller Galaxy Home - including images of what the model will look like - during next week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
