The novelty, first of all, is distinguished by the improved sound quality. Like its predecessor, the speaker is equipped with six ring microphones and supports a stereo channel. As a result, you can combine two or more devices for surround sound and playback throughout your home.
Also, the speaker has deeper low frequencies than the previous generation model, and a special internal design helps to improve the low-frequency effect. The new sound algorithm offers a wider dynamic range.
Xiaomi Mi AI Speaker can become part of the smart home and, thanks to the built-in Bluetooth Mesh Gateway, connect to hundreds of Bluetooth devices such as light bulbs, door locks, home appliances, etc. 89 third-party IoT platforms are supported including Philips and Op.
In China, the 2nd Gen Xiaomi Mi AI Speaker is already available for pre-order for $30.
