Along with the new Mi MIX 2s and 15.6-inch Mi Gaming Laptop, Xiaomi today launched the Mi AI Speaker Mini, as the “one last thing”.

As touted by Xiaomi, the Mi AI Speaker Mini is your easy access to over 35 million books and songs. The speakers support intelligent voice-controlled assistant, and smart home integration. If you are drawing comparisons to Google Home Speakers and Amazon Alexa, that’s totally fair.

Design-wise, it is a mini portable speaker that comes in a small, circular, full metal casing. The speakers have a built-in microphone. It looks small enough to sit on your palm. We also notice a navigation button on top of the device, for play, pause, next and one for activating the microphone. The Mi AI Speaker Mini has been launched in white color.

The India price and availability of the speakers is so far unknown.

Although for now the information of the speaker out there is very limited, we can easily see the device entering the home speakers arena. Simultaneously, the design also reminds us of its similarities to last year’s Mi Bluetooth Speaker Mini.

Revisiting the Bluetooth speakers, they were priced at Rs 1,299 in India. It comes in gray and gold color option. Like the AI Speaker Mini, they are small enough to fit in a palm. The speaker comes with CVC 6.0 noise reduction technology to improve outdoor performance. Xiaomi claims a 4-hour long battery life of the speakers.
