Xiaomi has launched two new devices, the Mi X5 and the Mi AI Speaker.

Xiaomi's AI speaker includes a six-microphone array for echo cancellation and voice control and is designed to be the hub for all of Xiaomi's smart home products. The speaker works like Amazon Echo, meaning you can ask it questions, play music, or set reminders.

Using a companion app, you will be able to install add-ons to bring additional features to Mi AI over time.

The Mi AI Speaker will go on sale in August at a price of $45 which is significantly lower than Google Home or Amazon Echo.

Xiaomi has a long track record of making products that other companies have already made, but with an equally elegant design but at a much lower cost. I expect that this smart speaker will actually be a pretty good buy, that is if you can buy one outside of China.
