Xiaomi announced their new smart speaker or smart home hub Xiaomi Xiao AI Touchscreen Speaker Pro 8 on December 15th, and now it’s gone up for sale globally too:
I don’t think this smart speaker will take off internationally though, simply because the Xiaomi Xiao AI Touchscreen Speaker Pro 8 has been built for the smart home and media ecosystems of China. Not to mention that it only supports voice commands in Chinese so far. But of course it supports smartphones running either Android 4.4 and higher, or iOS 9.0 and higher.
As for specs, it sports a 8-inch screen with a HD resolution of 1280 x 800, two 10 watt stereo speakers with 3 subwoofers and DTS sound boost, a 720p front camera, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, and BT 5.0.
