Xiaomi has announced the launch of a new Bluetooth speaker in India. Dubbed as Mi Pocket Speaker 2, the device comes with a price tag of Rs 1,499 and it is available on Mi.com in Black and White colour options.
The Bluetooth speaker is built of aluminium with an anodized oxide coating for a premium look and feel. The lower part of the speaker is made of PC + ABS alloy and it also features an LED indicator. The speaker is designed in partnership with Germany’s acclaimed brand Tymphany. The company says that it implemented a fabric net design to deliver clear sound with “perfect bass and treble”.
The speaker comes with top-mounted control buttons through which users can control playback, volume and other features. There is a smart concealed push button and users need to press and hold for 2 seconds to turn the speaker on or off. One has to double press the button to pair a new device and rotate the top to adjust the volume.
The speaker comes with a 5W speaker with 4 ohms impedance. The device is backed by a 1200mAh battery, which the company claims can offer up to 7 hours of continuous music playback. The speaker can be connected with Bluetooth and it features Bluetooth 4.1, which is compatible with most Bluetooth-enabled devices and allow a range up to 10 meters. There is a built-in microphone and can lightly press the aluminium top to receive a call.
