Huawei has joined hands with French startup company Devialet to unveil a new speaker called Sound X. The smart speaker sports a 60-watt double subwoofer and 360-degree sound, and its speaker active matching or SAM eliminates distortion and push-push woofer vibration-cancelling system. The Sound X comes equipped with a series of Huawei services including voice assistant, HiLink smart home control and Huawei music support. Devialet has said that Sound X is its "first partnership in Asia" and that China is its second-largest sales region in the world, as stated in the report.
