Samsung’s Galaxy Home missed its April launch date, and the company won’t say why

Today is May 10. On this day of history, Mother's Day was celebrated for the first time more than a hundred years ago, the film Twister premiered in theaters, and Fred Astaire and the sextuples of Gosselin were born (in different years , obviously). What did not happen: Samsung's explanation of why its Galaxy Home smart speaker did not meet the April delivery date and what is causing the delay.

Galaxy Home was originally announced in August 2018 when the company also introduced Note 9. it was supposed to use other smart speakers such as Google (Nest?) Home, Amazon Echo and Apple HomePod, with the exception that it would run in Samsung's voice assistant, Bixby. Samsung said at its most recent event in February, where it also announced the now famous Galaxy Fold, that the Galaxy Home would come in April. That window has obviously passed, and the company has not provided any clarity as to why.

When contacted for comments, Samsung representatives told The Verge that the company "plans to launch Galaxy Home in the first half of 2019" and gave no further details. That leaves Samsung with one more month to put the speaker on the market.

The demand for the Samsung speaker is unknown, but the market has proven to be a difficult space when it comes to using AI owner. The HomePod based on Apple's Siri has not been removed either; According to estimates last year, Apple sent (take into account the difference between the products shipped and the sold ) 600,000 HomePods in the quarter in which it was launched. That figure represented only 6 percent of the market share. The HomePod has since received a cut of $ 50, which is an atypical move for Apple products that are not updated annually.
