Couple of days ago, HiBy introduced a significantly reworked version of quite popular R6 DAP in a livestream event. First version of HiBy R6 was initially launched on Indiegogo back in 2017 and shown high interest of the audience by exceeding campaign target and finishing as a successful project in overall. Later came the R6Pro which had several HW tweaks to improve the performance.
Recently introduced R6 is not just an increment but looks to be a total revamp of the previous generations. According to the shared data and information that was already added to the official website — new R6 looks better, has better ergonomics, based on updated SoC and runs Android 9 OS. Furthermore, audio HW part was also improved to deliver the best possible quality.
Let’s see the changes in table view. Some specs are still missing but the idea is clear:
Together with lots of HW & SW improvements, the design has also changed drastically which claimed to make the ergonomics more comfortable due to new form factor, size, weight and depth. Here are some pictures:
Our own perception of the changes is very positive. We see that HiBy has addressed some issues that users were facing with previous models. Like the quality of WiFi reception, for instance. If the antenna was wisely updated — we can expect much better performance and speed… Same goes to many other major and minor concerns and should make this generation ideal. Hope so…
New HiBy R6 sales should begin in November with a price tag of $799 at HiBy official store.
