Apple today updated its websites for China and Hong Kong, confirming that the HomePod will be launching in both territories sometime early next year. Apple added support for Mainland China and Hong Kong in the HomePod software update released as part of iOS 12.1.1 today.
Like other countries, users in China and Hong Kong will be able to buy HomePod in White and Space Gray.
In China the HomePod will cost RMB 2,799, and in Hong Kong it will be priced at HK 2,799. Both of these prices translate to about $358 in US Dollars, which is just over the $350 price of the HomePod in the United States.
The HomePod first launched in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia in February 2018, and then expanded to Canada, France, and Germany in June 2018. This past October, Apple added Spain and Mexico to the list of available countries selling the smart speaker.
