In addition to being available from the Apple online store and Apple retail stores, Apple Authorized resellers in China and Hong Kong are also offering the ‌HomePod‌ for sale.

Apple's Phil Schiller said that the company is excited to bring ‌HomePod‌ to China and Hong Kong in a statement made when the launch was announced.

We're excited to bring HomePod to our customers in mainland China and Hong Kong markets. We can't wait for them to experience how great it sounds in their home, we think they are going to love it.

Ahead of the launch of the ‌HomePod‌ in China and Hong Kong, Apple added Siri support for Cantonese and Mandarin in China and a Cantonese dialect in Hong Kong in a software update released in December.

‌HomePod‌ was first introduced in the United States, UK, and Australia almost a year ago, and has since expanded to Canada, France, Germany, Spain, and Mexico, in addition to China and Hong Kong.

I am in Hong Kong and I thought this is the new HomePod 2 or the HomePod mini.
Apple can’t update their popular products in 5 years so don’t hold your breath for a HomePod 2 in the next decade.
