Galaxy Home Mini voices freely through Bixby. Commands can be used to control various devices. Two built-in microphones allow for voice recognition at long distance[…] It is equipped with an IR remote control function. – Translated from Korean
Samsung intends to differentiate the Galaxy Home Mini with IR remote control capabilities. It can be cumbersome to adjust volume or switch tracks using only voice commands, and some customers might prefer a more classic way to control their entertainment.Samsung has delayed the Galaxy Home at least a couple of times, perhaps to further refine Bixby, its in-house voice assistant. Although the announcement mentioned Korea, we wonder when the Galaxy Home Mini would arrive in Western markets. We expect to be hearing at least some kind of acknowledgement of the Galaxy Home Mini at the Unpacked event next week.
