Honor Yoyo is available in two colour variants of white and grey and has a minimalistic design weighing 165 grams. Resembling the Google Home Mini, the Honor Yoyo speaker’s circular light glows when the speaker is active and operates as a speaker phone when Yoyo’s smart speaker is paired with a smartphone over a WiFi network. Powered Huawei’s Histen Algorithm, the 2 inch 3W speaker can also be used to make or receive phone calls, check the weather report, read audio books and news, etc. It supports a 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHZ dual band Wi-fi network and can be powered by a power bank to accommodate its use, outdoors.
