HomePod mini leaked, showing new smaller design
Apple’s long-rumored HomePod mini has leaked ahead of today’s “Hi, Speed” special event, with images shared by prolific leaker Evan Blass showing the new smaller spherical-shape of the soon-to-be-announced Siri smart speaker.
The HomePod mini has been rumored for some time, with reports claiming the device could be priced from as little as $99 to compete with the likes of Amazon Echo and Google Home, supposedly powered by Apple’s S5 processor and measuring in at 3.3-inches tall, compared to the original HomePod which is 6.8-inches high.
The leak from Blass is the first time we’ve seen any form of HomePod mini design, showing Apple has opted for a new spherical shape, instead of the cylindrical design of the current-generation HomePod, which isn’t expected to get an update until next year.
The images suggest Apple’s new HomePod mini will feature a flattened top surface which will show a multicolored light when Siri is activated.
