Huawei Smart Speaker With 4G Router To Skip Oz

Chinese-based Huawei has unveiled its first smart speaker at IFA 2018, combining a 4G router with built-in Alexa. Following its ban from Australia’s 5G network, Huawei’s ‘AI Cube’ will reportedly not launch down under.

The ‘AI Cube’ claims to be among the world’s first smart speakers to integrate a full 4G wireless router.

The hybrid speaker-router incorporates far field array microphones for 360-degree voice recognition, plus a 400mL sound cavity for enhanced audio.

Integrating Amazon’s smart assistant Alexa, the device is tipped to support a wide variety of third-party devices.

Local consumers will have to wait and see whether rival manufacturers release a similar hybrid device – or whether Huawei changes its mind.
