Is the Samsung Galaxy Home a bit too late to the party?

The first time Samsung officially introduced the Galaxy Home was in August of 2018. But the company didn't spend a lot of time on it. Then, we got a longer presentation at Samsung's Developer Conference in November. Still, no release date.
We kind of expect that the Galaxy Home might finally launch together with (or close to) the Galaxy S10, at the start of March, but we can't be sure. But even if it does, is it a bit too late to the party? Amazon's Alexa-equipped Echo speakers have been dominating the market, Google has been carving its own place with its plethora of Google Home products, even Apple's HomePod is already in the hands of the Apple faithful.
Are you still holding out for the Galaxy Home or have you settled with another smart speaker and just don't care to bother?
Galaxy Home: are you still waiting for that?
Uh, what? I forgot it was a thing...
I am still waiting for some reviews, I might buy one.
I can't wait to get it! Come on, Samsung!

One area I feel Samsung would of been better getting in line with Google and just rolling with Assistant. Smartwatches, Tizen is still better suited then WearOS. Think LG made the right decision here with the assistants though.

If Samsung makes a smart speaker that supports both Bixby and Google Assistant, then it could be a hit. If it only has Bixby, then it will never be a hit. The thing is Samsung's Galaxy lineup support Gear VR and Daydream VR, as well as Google's ARCore. So there could be a chance that their speaker might do multiple Assistants. If anything Samsung should release a smart display as well. Because smart displays in the smart display world are taking over from where smart speakers left off.

The last thing I want is anyone's smart speaker. Not in my house. I want good wireless speakers, but if they include a microphone then forget it.
