Apple unveiled its intelligent personal assistant (siri) enabled speaker called HomePod in WWDC 2017. The 7 inch smart speaker is equipped with apples own A8 chip which is used in older version of iPhone, six microphone array & seven beam-forming tweeters that provide pure high frequency acoustics.
The upward-facing woofer, paired with the custom A8 chip, enables bass management through real-time software modeling that ensures the speaker delivers the deepest and cleanest bass possible, with low distortion.
According to Apple, Siri waveform appears on the top to indicate when Siri is engaged by calling ‘HEY SIRI’. Six microphone array helps to sense where in the room it’s playing or you’re telling it what you want to hear. The most intelligent part is its customized sound based on the room’s shape and size. This cute smart thing is going to hit in market this December carrying price tag of $349. You can visit apple official page for more information.
