Samsung’s much awaited Bixby-powered smart speaker has been announced today at the Galaxy Note 9 event in New York City. The device is called Galaxy Home. Samsung only teased the new product today and mentioned that it will reveal more information about the product at the Samsung Developers’ Conference in a couple of months.

The company did provide some information about the Galaxy Home at the event. It demonstrated the speaker’s ability by playing its intro audio with a setup made of 160 Galaxy Home speakers. It promises natural sound processing with powerful speakers and a subwoofer for rich, deep bass. Since it has Bixby, the speaker supports far-field voice recognition with eight microphones.

In addition to its AKG-tuned directional audio speakers, the Galaxy Home supports Samsung’s smart home ecosystem. It will enable users to control their SmartThings devices with voice commands. The demos that Samsung presented on stage during the event hint at the amazing sound quality and we’re certainly excited to learn about the speaker.

We’ll have to wait for that, though, as Samsung will reveal more about the Galaxy Home smart speaker at the SDC 2018 later this year.
