What is the Difference Between Roborock S8 Pro Ultra and G20? On March 21st, Roborock released its annual flagship automatic cleaning robot G20 and a brand-new model, the P10 in China.
This model is often referred to by many netizens as the Chinese version of Roborock S8 Pro Ultra. However, many netizens have pointed out that it is not the case. The following article will tell you about the differences between these two models.
1. Consumers need to purchase two different models in different countries.
As we all know. You can now pre-order the Roborock G20 Robot Vacuum in China for 4,999 yuan (~US$732) with a 100 yuan (~US$15) deposit. This pre-sale is due to last until April 15, when the gadget’s price will increase to 6,199 yuan (~US$908). A G20 Smart Water Edition, which can be plumbed into the water supply in your home, can also be pre-ordered for the discounted price of 5,599 yuan (~US$820). Roborock has yet to state whether or when the products could launch in other countries.
Introduced at CES in January, the S8 is Roborock’s flagship robot vacuum series for 2023. The lineup consists of three models: the S8 ($749.99), the S8+ ($999.99), and the S8 Pro Ultra ($1,599.99). The S8 Series is slated to go on sale in the US in late April and will be available for purchase on Roborock’s website as well as on Amazon.
2. Roborock S8 Pro Ultra has canceled the camera function.
What is the Difference Between Roborock S8 Pro Ultra and G20? Last year’s Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra relied on a standard camera for obstacle recognition and included a microphone, which allowed the vacuum to serve as a roving home security camera with support for video calls. The same goes for the Deebot X1 Omni. Roborock changed this on the S8 Pro Ultra, which relies only on an infrared camera for obstacle recognition and drops the microphone. Some privacy-conscious consumers may consider this a plus, but you can no longer remotely check on your home with the newer vacuum.
If you are more concerned about privacy issues, the S8 Pro Ultra will not give you any worries in this regard. Please note that the S8 Pro Ultra still has a camera, but it is presented in black and white. If you don’t have to worry about your robot spying on your privacy, at least it won’t present all the details.
3. There are differences in functionality between the two.
Many people believe that the G20 is the S8 Pro Ultra model, but the G20 has an automatic detergent tank and automatic dispensing and replenishment kit. However, these features are not available on the S8 Pro Ultra, so many people are in a dilemma whether to buy the latest product from the S8 series or wait for the Chinese version of G20.
To sum up
PCMag is not as satisfied, giving the S8 Pro Ultra 3.5 verses. But the specific decision still varies from person to person. As a side note, many netizens speculate that it won’t be long before Roborock launches the top model of the S8 series, similar to the S7 Maxv Ultra which is also MaxV. However, at the same time, concerns about the price of this latest model have arisen as well. After all, although there aren’t many upgrades in the S8 Pro Ultra version, it’s already $200 more expensive. So what are your expectations for Roborock’s new products in the future?
