Alongside the Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE smartphones launch, Xiaomi has also unveiled a new speaker with a touchscreen display. Calling it ‘Mini TV’, the device is a smart speaker at heart, but comes with a 4-inch touchscreen display for added functionality. Apart from the touchscreen display abilities, the Xiaomi Xiaoai Mini TV smart speaker also supports voice control. It can control all the smart fittings in the house, set alarm clocks, play music, and also set custom routine settings. It is looking to give competition to other smart speakers with displays like the Echo Spot.
The Xiaomi Xiaoai Mini TV is yet another addition to the Xiaoai speaker series. The new variant is set to go into open beta registrations on February 28. The company has revealed very little about the smart speaker, and it is listed to sport a 4-inch touchscreen display and will support smart home products. For example, it will support smart doorbell products, showing you who is at your doorstep whenever someone rings the bell. It relays real-time information, and as mentioned, also works on voice control commands as well.
Users can also access videos and music via many supported apps. There’s little else that is known about the speaker, and we should know more in the days to come.
Alongside, Xiaomi also launched the Mi 9, Mi 9 Transparent Edition, and Mi 9 SE smartphones in China. Key highlights of the Mi 9 include a triple rear camera setup along with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, Game Turbo technology, 90.7 percent screen-to-body ratio, and a fifth-generation in-display fingerprint sensor. Price of the Mi 9 series starts at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 21,200).
