Back in late April, HUAWEI AI Speaker 2 was announced alongside many other products at the HUAWEI nova7 series launch event. This speaker was unveiled in two colors namely Space Black and Nebula White. Now, the latter version will be finally going on sale for the first time on November 1 while its pre-orders have opened today.
The HUAWEI AI Speaker 2 is being sold by the company since May in only Space Black color. But now, after 6 months, it will be available in Nebula White color version. That said, the smart speaker is still limited to China as it is powered by Huawei’s own Xiaoyi voice assistant.
It could have debuted in global markets with either Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa like the recently launched Xiaomi XiaoAI Speaker ArtMi Smart Speaker in India. But due to the US ban, the company did not have a chance to partner with the said American companies.
Having said that, the HUAWEI AI Speaker 2 comes in two variants – with and without battery. It features 2.25-inch 10W main speaker with two bass units powered by HUAWEI Sound technology. On the connectivity front, it includes 2.4GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC.
Like most smart speakers out there, it also comes with four capacitive buttons for volume up / down, mute, and multi-function. Last but not least, the battery (3,900mAh) version is priced at 399 yuan ($59), whereas the non-battery version only costs 299 yuan ($44).
