Last week, when Xiaomi launched Mi Smart LED, we had briefed about its Smarter Living event in which the company was supposed to unveil a range of its IoT products. The same event happened today in which the Chinese brand launched a number of its IoT products in India. Xiaomi debuted Mi Smart Speaker among other products in the Indian market.
The speaker features a built-in Google Assistant that will allow users to control it using voice commands. It is designed as a home speaker with powerful front-firing drivers to provide a room-filling sound experience to users. During the Smarter Living event earlier today, Xiaomi also revealed Mi Smart Band 5 and Mi Watch Revolve alongside the company’s first smart-speaker in the country.
Mi Smart Speaker Features
The Mi Smart Speaker is designed as a home speaker that features a metal design with matte finish and has a 12W speaker unit. The speaker body has a 0.7 millimeters mesh design that consists of 10,531 holes providing a room-filling sound experience. Also, the small size of holes keeps the internals of the speaker free from dust. A Texas Instrument sound processor with 12W speaker unit powers the Xiaomi device’s 63.5mm sound drives to provide an immersive sound experience.
The smart speaker also has two far-field microphones and control buttons for volume, play/pause, and microphone switch on/off button. It also consists of a built-in Google Assistant that allows users to give commands to the smart speaker by saying, “Ok Google.” You can then give voice commands to set reminders, play music, and more.
Pricing and Availability
Xiaomi is offering its smart speaker at a special introductory price of ₹3,499 in India. The device will be available for purchase from October 1st on multiple online platforms. It will go for sale on Amazon, Mi India Store, and also Mi Home stores across the country. The good news is that Xiaomi is offering 1-year free Gaana music subscription on the purchase of Mi Smart Speaker.
