The market of IoT products is gaining steam in the past years as well as the market of wearables. As usual, more and more companies are joining this segment in a bid to catch a slice of this growing segment. Huawei is one of these companies and it particularly has a lot of reasons to pursuit customers there. Well, the company is suffering in its smartphone segment, so it really needs to diversify its business with other products. The company recently shared Huawei Sound as a flagship smart speaker and now is gearing up to launch a Huawei Sound Pro model.
The first model of the smart speaker came in 2019 with the Huawei Sound X moniker. The product debuted alongside the MatePad Pro. The company brought it back with the P40 series and recently introduced a Platinum Edition. Back in October this year, the company unveiled a sequel that is simply dubbed Huawei Sound. Now, a tipster states that Huawei will unveil a new Pro variant.
Gizchina News of the week
The original Huawei Sound X and Huawei Sound Smart Speakers are the fruit of a co-development between Huawei and Devialet, a French audio technology company. The speakers are powered by Huawei Xiaoyi AI voice assistant which boosts its smart capabilities. When it comes to the sound, both speakers are Hi-Res certified and offer a stereo experience when you pair two units together. Interestingly enough, the companies have taken some inspiration from Apple Homepod. The biggest difference between the two models is their size.
The arrival is confirmed by a leakster, but the name isn’t
So what can make the Huawei Sound Pro, really a “Pro” product? Well, we expect improvements in the sound quality and support for smarter features. A Chinese leakster already confirmed the product’s existence, unfortunately, he did not say anything about the features offered by the product. Neither he confirmed whether it will come as Huawei Sound Pro or Sound X2. For now, the simple Pro addition in the name is just an assumption.
There are two possibilities for the product launch. Huawei could leave it for the next year with the release of the Huawei P50 series which despite all the problems still is on the company’s schedule. However, it could come earlier if the company decides to launch the Mate X2, Nova 8 series soon. We’re not sure about the global availability of the new edition
