Huawei has been quite out of the picture ever since the tension between the US and China rose. While the Mate 30 came out to be a remarkable phone, it never really saw daylight in the US while Google didn’t show it any love either. This is not to say that Huawei isn’t up to anything though. It should be noted that the company is responsible for the highest market share in China, a country which occupies about 1/6th of the world’s population.
In that regard, we see the recent leaks, as posted on Gizmo China, about the upcoming Huawei Sound X. The Sound X, clearly a speaker, is an upcoming smart speaker from the company aiming to go against the likes of the Google Home, Apple’s Homepod and Amazon’s Alexa speaker. While the speaker is set to come out on the 25th of this month, it would be paired with Huawei’s much-anticipated, punch-hole screened tablet. Lucky for us, in this regard, the specs, the visuals of the speaker have been leaked quite extensively.
Right off the bat, the speaker reminds us of the Apple HomePod. This is not to say that it is a bad design but worth noting that in the typical Huawei way, the design is inspired by that of Apple’s product. It is a two-tone design and is outfitted with a 1.5GHz Quad-Core processor, paired with 512MBs of RAM and 8GB of storage.
There are two 60W subwoofers and six 1.5W tweeters for a 360° 5.1 home theater surround sound experience.
The speaker would, according to 2019 standards, pair with Bluetooth 5.0 and would support both 2.4 and 5GHz Wifi networks. Given that it is a smart speaker, it would boast certain features to compliment that as well. These features, right now, would be of the typical variety such as switching lights on and off. The device would be connected via Huawei’s HiLink App for further detailed integration. While there is still no correct information on the price tag that this package would come with but it is safe to assume that it would be north of $100, even more, if imported to the States.
