Apple’s smart speaker product with a 7-inch display design will be launched in 2024

There have been many rumors that Apple will launch a smart speaker product with a 7-inch display, which is said to be classified as part of the HomePod series and will be released in 2024.

According to famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will use a 7-inch display panel provided by China’s Tianma for this product, and it is expected to be launched as early as the first half of 2024. He also pointed out that this product will redefine Apple’s strategy in the smart home market.

Previously, it was believed that this product was designed as an “iPad” combined with a “speaker device”, but the current view is that Apple will add a screen design based on the smart speaker, allowing users to have further interactions with the smart speaker.

Earlier this year, Apple announced the launch of the second-generation HomePod. If it follows up with a HomePod product with a touch display, it will inevitably use the screen display and touch function to achieve more human-machine interactive experiences, and further promote more Internet of Things application models.
