Huawei revealed that they have joined hands with Devialet, a high-end audio company known for its premium Phantom speakers for its latest smart speaker, Sound X.
Engadget reported that as of now, the Huawei Sound X is available for pre-order in China but there is no word from the company regarding its release outside China. In China, the device is tagged with a price tag of 1999 Yuan (around $285).
Sound X is a 360-degree speaker. It comes with a 60-watt double subwoofer and a full array of Huawei services including Huawei Xiaoyi voice assistant, Huawei HiLink smart home control, Huwaei music support. The Huawei speaker got one-touch control.
It should be noted that Speaker X is unveiled at the same time as Huawei’s iPad Pro-like MatePad Pro tablet.
It is reported that in this partnership, Devialet is providing its speaker active matching (SAM) technology to Huawei. This technology reduces distortion with the help of its push-push woofer vibration-canceling system.
In today’s competitive market, you will find plenty of companies with high-end speakers but Devialet has always stood out due to its designs. Devialet’s latest collaboration looks a lot like a HomePod.
Devialet said that its partnership with Huawei to create Sound X is the company’s “first partnership in Asia” and they also commented that China is its “second-largest region worldwide in terms of sales.”
