A whole host of images, videos, and screenshots of Samsung’s Galaxy
Home Mini have been posted online by _XDA-Developers’ _Max Weinbach
, giving
us our most detailed look yet at Samsung’s unreleased smart speaker.
In a page that was subsequently taken down, Samsung previously said
the device will be released on February 12th
,
one day after its Galaxy S20 launch event
.

In particular, the leak details the speaker’s IR blaster
functionality
, which
can be used to control TVs, set-top boxes, and fans at a range of up
to 40 feet. The IR controller isn’t entirely unique to the Galaxy
Home Mini, after Amazon included it on its Fire TV Cube

smart speaker and Fire TV Blaster

accessory, but it should help the Galaxy Home Mini control devices
beyond those that are SmartThings-compatible.

Otherwise, it looks like the Galaxy Home Mini will support many of the
features
we’ve come to expect from existing smart speakers, including playing
music from Spotify, providing weather information, setting alarms, and
providing news reports. The Galaxy Home Mini can be paired with
another to provide better stereo sound, you can stream to the speaker
over Bluetooth, and it can receive notifications
from
SmartThings devices.

The leak also includes some details on its potential limitations. The
speaker doesn’t have a 3.5-mm line-out port, and it also appears to
be powered over micro USB rather than USB-C, according to a picture
posted of its underside
. Weinbach
also reports that the Galaxy Home Mini only supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi,
with no 5GHz connectivity in sight. Oh, and obviously the speaker uses
the Bixby smart assistant, whose functionality generally lags behind
what’s offered by Alexa and Google Assistant.

Samsung’s smart speakers have a bit of a weird history. The first
Bixby-powered speaker, the Galaxy Home, was announced back in August
2018
,
but has since faced multiple delays and is still yet to be released.
Then, seemingly out of nowhere, Samsung announced the smaller Galaxy
Home Mini
,
which it said would launch early this year
.
Samsung’s Unpacked event kicks off tomorrow, February 11th, where we
hope to see more.
