At the P40 launch event held today, Huawei announced a few other products. One of them is the Sound X wireless speaker. The speaker is jointedly developed by Huawei and Devialet and aims to revolutionize high-end acoustic technology with sonorous audio that leaves an enduring, life-altering impression on the listener.
The Sound X is the first high-end wireless speaker product from the Chinese telecommunications giant. Recall that the product was first announced in November 2019 during the Mate 30 launch. The Sound X is said to combine an awesome aesthetics with exquisite craftsmanship. The design is one of the recipients of the 2020 German iF Design Award as a result of its stunning appearance.
The smart speaker is designed to deliver seamless interaction with smart devices in the listener’s vicinity. Thus, if you gently tap your phone against the Sound X, it transmits audio to the speaker. The speaker also provides lossless, low-latency audio which can be further bolstered by a proprietary EMUI 10.1 multi-device control panel. This is Huawei’s equivalent of Apple’s AirPlay and is only available on the Huawei P40 since it is the only model running EMUI 10.1.
It also comes with the Huawei Share function. This saves users the hassle of waiting for a wireless or Bluetooth connection to establish. Instead, you can simply tap your phone’s NFC area against the Sound X, and the speaker will begin to play without delay. In addition, with Huawei Share, you can use the Sound X to answer calls by simply switching on the call mode with a tap of your hand.
The Sound X sound output is equally impressive, thanks to the input of Devialet, a global audio brand that enjoys a unique reputation for its premium High-Fidelity products. The company has garnered 76 awards and 160 technology patents, and cemented its position as a leader in acoustics, with inventive products that boast thunderous power and unparalleled performance within a limited-sized body. The product also comes with background noise suppression giving listeners a distortion-free sound even at maximum volume levels as well as low-pitched vibrations that can literally be felt in the listener’s bones.
The Huawei Sound X comes equipped with Devialet‘s patented signal-processing SAM® (Speaker Active Matching) technology, and iconic Push-Push symmetrical structure.
In terms of the exterior design, the main, glossy portion of the body is crafted from an advanced non-conductive vacuum electroplating process which allows for quality signal transmission and reception. The lower portion uses a seamless cover that further facilitates free, lossless transmission. The RGB tri-colour indicator light on the top surface seemingly blends the emitted light with its surroundings, for a kaleidoscopic display that is reminiscent of a glamorous music hall. The body is equally impact-resistant.
In addition, the speaker is equipped with dual subwoofers that deliver 60W of booming bass, while remaining compact and portable for every day, all-purpose use. The innovative, visible bass unit creates a lasting visual impression to pair with the resonance of the audio.
Huawei is yet to announce the pricing and availability details but promised to do that soon.
