According to Taiwan’s supply chain source (Via Sina), Apple is in talk with MediaTek to launch a cheap version of its HomePod speakers to grab more market share. Statistics show that HomePod sold only 600,000 units in the first quarter of this year, which is a lot worse than Google and Amazon.

The anonymous source claimed that Apple is preparing to announce the cheap version of HomePod. However, it will not be linked to Apple's name. Instead, it will be under the Beats brand. As for price, the low-priced model would cost around $199, which is far cheaper than current HomePod's cost.


The reason behind Google and Amazon smart speakers' well-received sales, in addition to relatively decent technology, but more importantly, these products cost-effective, such as entry-level models Echo Dot, Home Mini are priced for $49, on the contrary, HomePod price up to $349, it is indeed difficult to accept it, so why not make it cheaper?

Would you purchase a HomePod that's priced for only $199?
