What was already heralded as a spectacle, Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City yielded a couple of unexpected surprises. One of them was teasing its Bixby powered smart speaker, the strange looking Samsung Galaxy Home. We spent a short time during the event to check out this upcoming smart speaker, which will more likely receive a fuller introduction during Samsung’s Developer Conference in a few months from now.
During one point at Samsung’s event, they pulled off the curtains from the Galaxy Home speaker by having several of them ceremoniously providing the intro music for its tease. While we were there soaking in everything, the audio performance from the combined speakers did manage to fill the huge void at the Barclays Center. Unfortunately, that was basically the extent of the demo, seeing that later on, we were dealing with non-playing pre-production models.
