Huawei AI Cube
Huawei launched their first smart speaker called the Huawei AI Cube. The smart speaker comes with four inbuilt speakers and helps provide the much-needed 360-degree audio. It also equips Huawei’s Histen technology, an aluminum diaphragm, passive radiators, and far-field voice recognition.
With Amazon Alexa built-in, the AI Cube allows users to perform actions like listening to the news, streaming music, setting timers, and controlling connected smart home gadgets, just like other smart speakers. The smart speaker also acts as an Internet router and comes with Wi-Fi 802.11ac with support for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, offering support for up to 1200Mbps. With a 4G SIM, it supports speeds of up to 300Mbps. It will reportedly be released in Europe before this year’s holiday season. The price has not been revealed yet.
On the other hand, Huawei also introduced a GPS tracker; the Huawei Locator, a nifty GPS tracker that will reveal GPS coordinates for use in times of an emergency. In terms of connectivity, the Locator includes GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou, Wi-Fi assisted positioning, and real-time position reporting. It is IP68 water and dust resistant. The GPS tracker has a geofence of 50-2,000 meters and comes with an SOS button. Pricing and availability details are yet to be announced.
