Meet the LingLong DingDong, China's Amazon-Echo-inspired, voice-activated smart home speaker

Instead of Starbucks, China has 'Bucksstar' while Pizza Hut becomes 'Pizza Huh'.

However, the country's latest foray into copycat items will definitely make you go, 'Huh?'

Chinese tech company Beijing LingLong has introduced a voice-activated smart home speaker, following in the footsteps of the Amazon Echo and Google Home.

Its name? The LingLong DingDong.

According to Shanghaiist, the speaker understands Mandarin and Cantonese, plus some basic English.

It can help you to play music, shop online, lock doors and even look up directions.

It is currently selling on for between 798 yuan and 998 yuan (S$165 and S$206).
