Coming soon. Those are the words you will find on Samsung's official website for the Galaxy Home, the company's first Bixby-powered smart speaker. Samsung has been quiet about pricing and release date information, but we have now learned that the Galaxy Home will initially be released in the US, South Korea, and China. Also, the speaker carries model number SM-V510. We don't, however, know when the speaker will go on sale.

Exclusive: Galaxy Home launch markets won't surprise you

The list of initial Galaxy Home launch markets shouldn't come as a surprise. The US, South Korea, and China were among the first markets to receive Bixby Voice support, and it makes sense the Galaxy Home will come to those markets before others as well. India was another market where Bixby Voice was released before other countries, but the Galaxy Home might not have many takers in India because of the price tag. The Galaxy Home price is not yet known, yes. But Samsung has made it clear that the Galaxy Home is a premium product that will not be priced as low as competitors like Google Home and Amazon Echo.

It will instead take on the Siri-powered Apple HomePod, with features such as premium AKG-tuned audio and full SmartThings integration. You can take a closer look at the Galaxy Home in our hands-on experience, but for a detailed look at its functionality and features, we will need to wait for the developer conference in November. You can also check out Samsung's official Galaxy Home unveiling from the Galaxy Note 9 launch in the video below.
