Samsung had already promised a Bixby-powered, intelligent Galaxy Home speaker in August, a top-of-the-line device that could potentially compete with Apple's HomePod and the Amazon Echo Plus. While this spokesperson is still unavailable and has no fixed release date, the company is also reportedly planning to purchase a second Bixby speaker, which is available in black and, according to SamMobile citing an anonymous source may be a lower priced one Option that can compete with cheaper smart speakers.
The second Bixby speaker reportedly has the model number SM-V310, while the Galaxy Home is the model number SM-V51
A budget option could also help demarcate a smart Bixby speaker in an already overcrowded market, where established companies like Google and Amazon offer devices powered by intelligent wizards that people already know they own to be reliable.
Little since August about the Galaxy Home and has not confirmed its alleged counterpart, but with CES 2019 just around the corner, where Samsung will certainly be present, it may be possible that more information will be published soon.
