The Xiaomi Smart Speaker Lite has arrived in Europe and is currently available in Spain. The device has a 1.75-in (~44 mm) full-range speaker unit, with the product page suggesting the Xiaomi Acoustic Lab has tuned it.

The Xiaomi device has two built-in microphones and Amazon Alexa for voice commands; for example, you can ask Alexa what the weather is like or to play the song of your choice. The compact speaker has a matte gray finish, weighing 460 g (~16.2 oz) and measuring 142 x 70 x 28 mm (~5.6 x 2.8 x 1.1-in). You can buy the Xiaomi Smart Speaker Lite in Spain for €39.99 (~US$44).
