Xiaomi appears to be having one more smart speaker to launch in the near future as a new leak hints at the possibility. The leak shows the alleged retail box of the smart speaker and going by what is mentioned in this box, the device will be known as Smart Display Speaker Pro 8.
The retail box also shares a few more key details that will help you in knowing the device a little better. The smart speaker has a display, similar to the Google Nest Hub and Amazon Echo Show. And, just like any other smart speaker, we assume the device will perform tasks like telling you about the weather, playing music, setting alarms, and more. And, having an in-built display will further enhance productivity and unlock more features.
Going by the description written on the retail box, the Xiaomi Smart Display Speaker Pro 8 has built-in passive diaphragms which could deliver impressive sound. It comes with touch-screen display and high-power speakers so that the sound could reach every corner of the room. The box also mentions that the device has Hi-Fi audio processing chip which comes with a built-in high-performance audio amplifier from Texas Instruments for high efficiency, low distortion audio. It also has DTS professional tuning and other functions.
The leak doesn’t showcase the price but it is assumed to be around 599 yuan which roughly translates to $86. Note that the smart speaker display has also passed 3C certification, so assume we can see it launching anytime soon.
Also, note that Xiaomi first launched a 4-inch smart speaker display back in February in China. The name of the device was kept Xiaoai Mini TV and it has Amazon Echo Show like form factor with functionalities similar to any other smart speaker with a display.
