Apart from SmartphonesXiaomi has steadily expanded its presence as a connected ecosystem product company. The portfolio will expand massively later this month as many new categories are introduced and updated.
Every year Xiaomi holds a Smarter Living event in India for its IoT products. This year it will take place on September 29th at noon. If the accompanying teaser has something to offer, this year’s edition will be bigger than ever and thus mark Mi’s entry into many new product categories.
Some clues are pretty easy to decipher. We see that at first glance Mi Smart Band 5, an automatic soap dispenser and a pair of running shoes. The Mi Band 5 is long expected to be launched in India and features a larger 1.1-inch color touchscreen, new activity tracking modes, heart rate monitoring, 14-day battery, sleep tracking and much more. However, it could be a a bit expensive than its predecessor.
Some other products in optics look like a new smart lightbulb that can be controlled from a smartphone, some sort of workstation table or chair, a smart speaker or wireless charger, and possibly an electric bike. This is a first for Xiaomi. It’s unclear what the dog and the jumping lady mean, but it could be an air purifier – just in time for Christmas time.
The letter L also shows a smartwatch with a round face, probably the one Mi Watch Revolve It was launched in China in 2019. It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen and a proprietary software skin that. There may be differences in the specifications when it lands in India. The price was around 800 CNY, which is roughly Rs 9,000.
There might still be some products or announcements that will be detailed at the event. We expect offers that support this new work also from the home lifestyle. As always, there will be some aspect of technology in everything that is brought to market.
