Huawei today introduced the AI Cube, an in-home speaker that relies on Amazon Alexa for voice-based smarts. The AI Cube is unique in that it supports Cat 6 LTE and can serve as a mobile hotspot when needed. It includes dual-band WiFi for connecting phones, tablets, and other devices that rely on WiFi. The speaker has a 400ml sound cavity and aluminum diaphragm that are controlled by Huawei's Histen AI for dynamically adjusting bass response and gain to suit the surroundings. It has a 15W mono speaker and four microphones to support far-field voice recognition. The AI Cube has a white chassis and is available in three different mesh base colors. Huawei didn't announce pricing or availability of the AI Cube.
