A major upgrade from its previous edition, which enabled translation between Chinese and five other languages, the new device has a larger range of languages that enables translation between Chinese and languages such as Polish, Tamil, and Hungarian, in addition to more frequently-used ones like English and French, according to the product description.

The second generation device can recognize four types of Chinese accents, including dialects in Sichuan and Henan as well as Cantonese and the northeastern accent, said the product manager Zhai Jibo.

He said the 120 gram portable device, which features a 2.4-inch touch screen and a rear camera, can also instantly translate photographs of foreign texts.

The device is priced at 2,999 yuan (US$476.6).

Over 200,000 sets of IFLYTEK’s first generation portable translation machine have been sold in 135 countries since hitting the market in March 2017, with 86 percent of all use made during overseas travel, according to data released at the product launch event.
