 Geely and Meizu, two major innovators in their respective industries in China, are leveraging their connections to revolutionize the in-car audio experience. At the end of May, Geely-controlled Meizu officially released the “Galaxy Flyme Auto” intelligent cockpit system and the ‘Flyme Sound Limitless Voice’ AI-powered sound system, aiming to redefine the standards of in-car entertainment. Could in-car audio enhancements using AI tech be the next evolution of high-tech cars? In any case,  over the coming months, they will be integrated into new Geely Galaxy models.

 The Galaxy Flyme Auto is an extension of Meizu’s Flyme OIS platform tailored for the smart car domain. Meizu claims it adds “a seamless, elegant, intelligent cockpit experience” through features like full-screen gestures, multi-form desktops, continuous voice interaction, and smart scenario recognition. Importantly, the system enables automatic connectivity between the user’s smartphone and the vehicle, allowing for functions like keyless entry, navigation handover, and cross-platform app integration.

Powering the Galaxy Flyme Auto is Geely’s in-house developed “Dragon Eagle 1 ” 7nm automotive-grade cockpit chip, which boasts 100K DMIPS of computing power and 900GFLOPS of graphics rendering capabilities – twice the AI performance of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8155 chip. This custom silicon chip supports high-definition video playback and enables many AI-driven applications.

 Alongside the intelligent cockpit, Geely has collaborated with Meizu to introduce the “Flyme Sound Limitless Voice”—the “industry’s first 9.1.6-channel AI-powered sound system.” This system will utilize connected AI technology to enhance passengers’ listening experience. It features a 1.6-channel 3D surround sound configuration and up to 27 speakers with a total power output of 2000W. It is reported that the system can recreate the acoustic ambiance of various venues, from recording studios to concert halls.

 Leveraging advanced AI algorithms, Flyme Sound automatically optimizes the sound field, matching audio effects, and enables personalized sound preferences for each occupant. Additionally, Geely’s comprehensive NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) tuning, active noise cancellation, and dynamic ambient lighting work in tandem to create a serene, space-like cabin environment.

The Flyme Sound system also integrates the WANOS 3D audio app and Geely’s Galaxy Sound Space app, providing users with a library of immersive audio content. The Galaxy Flyme Auto and Flyme Sound Limitless Voice will be featured in Geely’s upcoming Galaxy E5 and other new vehicle models, aiming to cater to the evolving needs of smart car customers with “a seamless and personalized audio-visual experience.”
