Huawei’s AI speaker looks similar to Apple’s HomePod.
The Huawei AI Speakers uses a proprietary Xiaoyi voice assistant. It’s also much cheaper than the $350 Apple HomePod at 399 yuan (about $60 USD). Yet Huawei have not planned to release it globally, so we will have to wait to see if Huawei will add English Voice Support.
The Huawei AI Speakers uses a Danish speaker company Dynaudio’s audio technology. It is also paired with Huawei’s own “Histen” algorithm. This particular algorithm can be found in Huawei’s phones. The 2.25-inch high-fidelity, 10W speaker has six microphones and voiceprint recognition to distinguish different family members’ voices. It comes in two colours, grey and white.
