    Samsung’s developing a Galaxy Home Mini 2 that you might never buy

    The original Galaxy Home Mini never left South Korea, and at this point, there's no chance it will. However, our sources tell us that Samsung is now developing a smart speaker, and once again, it could be exclusive to the South Korean market.

    The so-called Galaxy Home Mini 2 should carry model number SM-V320. We're hearing that the smart speaker could be equipped with a display, though it's unclear what shape. We can imagine something akin to the Google Home Hub or a device shaped like the Galaxy Home Mini but with a speaker embedded on top. There's no detailed information at this point, so we can only guess.

    The narrative that drove the Galaxy Home Mini was that Samsung used this smart speaker as a test launch for a new line of devices. The company presumably wanted to collect feedback from customers before it could fully commit to mass production. But as we all know, the Galaxy Home Mini was released in small quantities and never left South Korea.

    The Galaxy Home Mini 2 could follow a similar path, we hear. It could be limited to South Korea, though it will probably be released in larger quantities and boast improvements over the original model based on customer feedback. We'll keep you posted as soon as we find out more. Feel free to follow our social media channels if you don't want to miss out on future news.

    Galaxy Home Mini just got an update, and it’s raising some questions

    Bixby, for all intents and purposes, has fallen by the wayside as far as Samsung's priorities are concerned. It still exists on Galaxy phones and tablets and keeps getting updates, such as the UI makeover it received recently, but it's clear that Samsung's initial fervor for Bixby has turned lukewarm. Perhaps the biggest indication of […]
