The new HomePod mini is smaller than the original one, of course as the name suggests, ‘mini’ with a new rounded design. It has integration with Siri, touch controls, and comes in two colours; Space Grey and White. It’s powered by the S5 chip which also powers the Apple Watch Series 5. The HomePod Mini will launch in India for ₹9,900 and I could see it being a popular portable speaker in India for that price.
