Samsung is likely to release the Galaxy Home Mini speaker on 12 February. The South Korean company has put a press release with that information on its own website and later removed it again.
The website TizenHelp has made a screenshot from the now-deleted Korean Samsung page. There you could read that the speaker will be released in South Korea on 12 February for a price of 75 euros. Nothing was said about a release in other countries.
The date of 12 February means that the release of the speaker would take place one day after Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Francisco. During this event, the company is expected to announce its new Galaxy smartphones. The announcements may follow at the same time or both will take place on Unpacked; due to the time difference between South Korea and the west coast of the United States, the Unpacked event may mean 12 February.
In the deleted announcement, Samsung mentions the support of voice assistant Bixby and the presence of two microphones. It was also stated on the page that the Galaxy Home Mini has 5W speakers from AKG. In November last year, Samsung showed that the speaker has infrared transmitters and receivers, which are intended for operating equipment without WiFi.
The Samsung Galaxy Home Mini must be the smaller version of the Galaxy Home speaker. This Galaxy Home speaker was unveiled in August 2018, but the release of this device has been postponed several times and is still pending.
