Samsung gave the world a first look yesterday at the Galaxy Home, its take on a high-end, HomePod-like smart speaker. And much like Apple did with the HomePod, Samsung announced the speaker well in advance of its actual availability — and well before it’s willing to share full details on how the speaker works.
Right now, there are a few things we know: the number of speakers (six, and a subwoofer); number of mics (eight); what it looks like (alien houseplant); and that it will include Bixby and Spotify support. But our knowledge of the speaker pretty much ends there.
So as we speculate on how the speaker will hold up against its many competitors, here are the big questions we’re still waiting for an answer on.
How smart is it?
