Roborock has taken off in recent years with robot vacuums that see continuous improvements, and now the company is raising the bar again with the Roborock S6 MaxV. The new vacuum tops the company’s offerings, combining the best feature of earlier models with more power and some new smarts.
Inside of the Roborock S6 MaxV, a Qualcomm® APQ8053 processor chip upgrades the processing power and intelligence of the vacuum. Roborock has combined that upgrade with a dual-camera system for obstacle recognition and avoidance. With Qualcomm’s AI processing and dual cameras capable of binocular vision working alongside a LIDAR sensor, the Roborock S6 MaxV is more capable of navigating around a house than ever.

The Roborock S6 MaxV boasts advanced obstruction detection that detects pet waste, power strips, pedestals, and more. With this advanced object detection, the Roborock S6 MaxV can deploy its high-powered mopping system in homes up to 2,150 square feet.
The AI and dual-cameras allow the Roborock S6 MaxV not just to navigate but also to avoid obstacles that can cause trouble for other robot vacuums. The Roborock S6 MaxV can spot obstacles as small as 2 inches wide and 1.1 inches tall. So, if children’s toys or a pet’s mess is blocking the way, the Roborock S6 MaxV won’t get tripped up.
Avoiding an obstacle is one thing, but the Roborock S6 MaxV takes it even further. In the app, the Roborock S6 MaxV shows you everywhere it has cleaned and tags the locations of obstacles, even going as far as labeling any that it could identify. You’ll know right where to look, as the Roborock S6 MaxV can learn the layout of your house, the various rooms, and even identify different floors now.
When it comes to the cleaning itself, the Roborock S6 MaxV has another considerable upgrade in-store. This model has increased its power by 25% over the older Roborock S6, now offering a max suction of 2,500Pa. But, when you want to keep the noise down, the Roborock S6 MaxV can clean at a low 58dB. And, if you need to do a deeper clean, there’s a 290ml water tank to add some mopping into the mix.
The Roborock S6 MaxV’s 5,200mAh battery lets it clean for up to 3 hours at a time. But, if there’s still more cleaning to be done, Roborock’s Smart Top-Up feature is there to help. This will let the vacuum head back to its charger for a quick recharge to get just enough power to finish cleaning.
This all makes the Roborock S6 MaxV quite a contender, and it will be launching at $749. You can find out more here.
