Apple Launches the HomePod Mini in China; To hit Retail Stores on December 11

Last month, Apple unveiled the new HomePod Mini alongside other products at a dedicated virtual launch event. The new Apple speaker arrived as a relatively cheaper version of the earlier released HomePod Smart.

Now, the giant tech firm has stormed the Chinese market today to launch the HomePod Mini in the country officially.

For the design, the new Apple HomePod Mini has a circular shape with a flat top and base. Its flat bottom allows it to sit steady when placed on a flat surface.

Of course, it would be a bad idea if it was a complete circle as it would roll around when placed on flat surfaces.

The flat surface on the top part features an activity display, and the body of the speaker has a mesh fabric wrapped around it.

Talking internals, the new Apple HomePod Mini comes with a single unit driver and two passive radiators. It also features an acoustic waveguide at the bottom.

The smart speaker is controlled by an Apple S5 chipset, which the company claims provide computational audio.

It has support for the Intercom feature, which is quite similar to the broadcast feature on Google Assistant.

The Intercom feature allows an automatic connection between two HomePod Minis when placed close to each other. The feature allows for the two smart speakers to operate in stereo mode.

Also, the Intercom feature allows the user to operate the HomePod Mini like a walky-talky. Users can send voice messages to other HomePod speakers in the house and get a voice reply from the other end as well.

The HomePod Mini arrived in China in two colour variants – white and space grey. It carries a price tag of 749 Yuan (~$114).

In China, the smart speaker is already available on pre-order, and it will start shipping to customers and hit retail stores on December 11.
