Huawei announced the new smart speaker Sound X as schedule at today’s launch event. The new audio product was co-developed with Devialet, a French-audio company.
Build of Huawei Sound X Smart speaker
The Sound X has a cylindrical design which is the best if you are aiming for 360° surround sound. It has a two-tone finish – glazed upper half and a mesh bottom. There is a cut-out on the body of the speaker for the subwoofer. The top is where the capacitive controls are and there is a cool rainbow light effect when the speaker is on or the AI voice assistant is active.
The Sound X weighs 3.5 kilograms, has a diameter of 165 millimeters and stands at 203 millimeters tall and has a power rating of 24V 2.7A.
Main features of Huawei Sound X Smart speaker
Quad-core processor featuring 512MB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
Huawei Sound X will be equipped with a quad-core processor, 512MB RAM, 8GB internal storage. It comes with an inbuilt microphone, physical key for mute, multi-function and volume control.
2 x 60W subwoofer
The Huawei Sound X Smart Speaker has two 3.5” subwoofers (60W in total) and uses SAM bass enhancement technology. Huawei says this is the first smart speaker with a Hi-Res certification. The bass can dive to an ultralow frequency of 40Hz, allowing you to feel the bass effect with your entire body. The speaker has a sound intensity of 93 decibels. Even at such a high volume, sounds are not distorted and this is because the speaker uses Devialet’s Push-Push acoustic design. The Push-Push design has two symmetrical woofers installed in a confined space and cancels out noise generated at a high volume by using the back-wave thrust generated by each woofer.
6 x 1.5W tweeters for a 360° 5.1 home theater surround sound experience.
There are six evenly distributed 1.5” 8W mid-range speakers alongside the subwoofers and they are tuned using Huawei’s Histen sound algorithm. Sound X also has spatial awareness, so it adjusts sound output depending on where it is placed. There are six microphones placed around the speaker that can pick up your voice from up to 5 meters away. The combination of the 1.5GHz MediaTek MT8518 quad-core processor and anti-interference signal processing technology ensures that your commands are picked up even in a noisy environment.
NFC pairing for one-touch sound control
Playing music from your phone is super easy. The speaker has NFC and if your phone also has NFC, all you have to do is touch it against the NFC icon on the speaker. The Sound X smart speaker can also be paired with another unit for a dual-speaker stereo mode. All you have to do is double-tap the multifunction button to quickly enter into stereo mode.
Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi.
The Sound X connects via Bluetooth 5.0 to your phone and supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi networks. It supports dual-band Wi-Fi.
HiLink smart home control.
You can control your lights, robot vacuum cleaner, and smart plugs using Huawei’s HiLink app. Huawei’s HiLink technology works with products from Midea, Gree, TCL, Haier, Skyworth, Bosch, Siemens and more.
Huawei partners, Devialet
Devialet is a premium French high-end Hi-Fi audio equipment brand and its Devialet Phantom range of speakers, especially the Silver Phantom and Phantom Gold, has received extremely rave reviews for its sound quality and volume. So Huawei’s partnership with Devialet for its new smart speakers makes things a lot more exciting. It could be as significant as Leica was for its smartphone cameras.
