The multiple phone launches this week didn’t leave enough time to cover some other interesting products such as this cute little Bluetooth speaker from Xiaomi. Launched on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding platform, the Elvis Presley Atomic Player B612 is an interesting-looking speaker.
There are tons of Bluetooth speakers on the market and the only way to stand out is to adopt a unique design and that is exactly the case for the Atomic Player. First, its footprint is small but its retro player-like design (and color) will surely draw people’s attention.
Apart from serving as a Bluetooth speaker, it can also connect to wireless networks and stream music from a bunch of services including Apple Music and QQ Music. Owners are required to download the OhPlay app. It also has a built-in FM radio (120KHz – 20KHz).
The Atomic Player is made of a zinc-aluminum alloy with a retro-green finish and some silver-colored parts. A 400mAh built-in battery which is said to last up to 7 hours on a single charge and charges via a MicroUSB port powers the device.
The player measures 63 x 47 x 30mm and weighs 130g. It comes in a colorful box which contains a small carrying bag, a lanyard cable, and a braided cable. It is priced at ¥249 (~$37) and will begin to ship September 22. It will be sold on Xiaomi’s crowdfunding platform. Below are unboxing images from Xiaomi Today.
