Xiaomi has announced the Smarter Living 2022 date in India. The company will host its annual event on August 26, where it will introduce the new Mi laptop and many other products. Xiaomi India Commercial Director Raghu Reddy told Money Control that the company will also launch a new Wi-Fi router and security camera. In a separate interaction with India today Reddy also confirmed the launch of the long-awaited Mi Band 6 and the new Mi Notebook. Xiaomi has already started teasing the key features of its new laptop. It is confirmed to have a backlit keyboard and also a built-in webcam.
Reddy also said that the original Mi Notebook 14 series launched last year will be discontinued after the launch of the new laptops. These include Mi Notebook 14, Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition, and Mi Notebook 14 e-learning edition. Customers can purchase older laptops while supplies last. “The new Mi Notebook will be a major upgrade from what we offered last year. You’ll see many class-leading features in the new model. We believe that the creative economy wants laptops that are not only good from a processing point of view, but also from a screen point of view. That’s what you’ll see in the new Mi Notebook, ”said Reddy.
My band 6
Furthermore, it confirmed the details of the launch of Mi Band 6 India. Reddy said that the Mi smart band will be launched together with the Notebook 14 in India at the Xiaomi Smarter Living 2022 event. The smart band was launched in March in China. Xiaomi’s new smart bracelet features a larger 1.56-inch AMOLED touchscreen and offers up to 14 days of battery life on a single charge. It supports up to 30 sports models and can automatically detect six activities such as walking, running, indoor treadmill, and cycling. Other features include 24×7 blood pressure monitoring, blood oxygen (SPO2), heart rate monitoring, and sleep tracking.
More IoT Products
In his interaction with Money Control Reddy also confirmed the launch of a new Wi-Fi router in India. He didn’t share any specs for the device, but said the new router will be priced higher than its entry-level router released in 2017. “We’ll have to wait until launch to find out more, but definitely not an entry-level. . It will definitely be on the higher end. But I’m probably not going to be able to cancel it that clearly, you know this is going to be a way up, or it’s just going to be somewhere a little higher, ”Reddy said.
Xiaomi currently offers the Mi Router 4C in India, listed on the company’s website for Rs 999. The company offers multiple premium options such as the Mi Router Ax9000 and the Mi AIoT Router AX3600. There is also a Mi Router 4A Gigabit Edition that is available in select global markets.
Alongside the router, Xiaomi will also launch a new security camera in India. The Moneycontrol report does not mention any details of the upcoming Xiaomi product. The company already offers two security cameras in India and Reddy said the company’s products in space have been the number one security camera since the fourth quarter of 2018, with a market share of more than 40 percent.
Reddy stated that new IoT products will have an “honest price”, something that Xiaomi represents. Lastly, Reddy said that many new products are arriving for Indian consumers as the company prepares for the holiday season.
The star of Smarter Living will be the new crop of premium notebooks from the Mi brand. While last year’s Mi NoteBook 14 series became a bestseller, Raghu admits there was a lot of room for improvement. On its next successors, not only will all the comments be addressed, but they will offer one of the best displays in a laptop in this segment. The other areas where we will see updates will be the layout, the webcam backlighting, and the keyboard.
Raghu also exclusively confirmed that Xiaomi will launch its first Wi-Fi router at the event, as well as a new security camera. No specs or features were mentioned, but we’d expect both to be mid-range offerings.
Since the Mi TVs have changed the face of the smart TV category, the Mi will focus on more premium TVs in the future as the basics have already been covered. Audio products and portable devices will also be an area of focus going forward.
He also talked about how Xiaomi is considering products such as dishwashers, tablets, inexpensive smartwatches and other products, but did not confirm the launch of any.
At Smarter Living 2022, Xiaomi is expected to introduce the Mi Band 6, Mi NoteBooks, new high-end TVs, routers, security cameras and a few other lifestyle products, highlighting a greater focus on home products this season.
