Baidu Inc.’s latest smart speaker now comes with a promotional price tag of just 89 yuan ($14), as it ramps up its hardware offerings to give a further boost to its burgeoning artificial intelligence (AI) business.

The internet giant has decided to pour cash into promoting its third smart speaker model, called Xiaodu, which has a normal sticker price of 249 yuan. The company has not said how long this promotion will last.
