ECOVACS announced a new flagship robot vacuum model at their Global Launch Event on August 17th, 2023. Dubbed the DEEBOT X2 OMNI, the 2-in-1 robot vacuum has notable differences from the brand’s previous flagship, the DEEBOT X1 OMNI.
The robot vacuum was unveiled along with two additional ECOVACS home products, the WINBOT W2 window cleaner and AIRBOT Z2, a multi-functional air purification robot.
The DEEBOT X2 Omni looks to be far more than a performance upgrade to the DEEBOT X1 OMNI model as the robot’s shape, size, navigation system, obstacle avoidance capabilities and full-service OMNI docking station are all new.
Some notable X2 Omni specifications include:
- A square robot design with rounded-off corners
- 15mm of mop lift
- 7500-800Pa suction
- AIVI 3D 2.0 with Dual-Laser LiDAR
- 210-degree FOV (field of view)
- Dirty-water detection
- Auto-detergent filling
- YIKO intelligent voice assistant 2.0
At first glance, two figures stand out. First is the 7500-8000Pa of suction, higher than currently available consumer robot vacuums. Second is the 15mm of mop lift. We recently did a review of the Roborock Q Revo and Eufy X9 Pro finding their mop pads lift 7mm and 12mm respectively. 15mm is a full 8mm higher than the Roborock model and 3mm higher than the Eufy X9 which was the most lift we had seen to-date.
On the innovation front, the X2’s new LiDAR system is something we haven’t seen before. As opposed to a spinning turret atop the robot, the X2’s design works without the top-mounted obstruction. This enables the X2 to have a far sleeker design, allowing it to get beneath more furniture than many competing robots.
ECOVACS also shared video of the X2 avoiding obstacles, including those dropped right in front of the robot’s path. The obstacle avoidance system seemed highly responsive when compared to other robot vacuums we’ve tested and reviewed.
The X2 robot vacuum is complimented by a revised version of the brand’s OMNI docking station which can empty the robot’s dustbin and dirty water tank, fill the X2’s clean water tank and wash and dry its mop pads.
