Xiaomi has recently introduced their new Mi Max phablet, along with the MIUI 8 OS. This China-based company has also introduced their new flagship earlier this year (back in February), and their Mi Band 2 fitness tracker will be introduced next month it seems. Xiaomi is also working on a curved display smartphone, Mi Note 2 flagship phablet and their very own drone. That being said, the company’s CEO, Lei Jun, talked about the company’s upcoming products in the recent video broadcast, let’s see what he had to say.
Lei Jun usually tends to share insight on the company’s upcoming products, and this time is not different, except for the fact he shared tons of info with the general public. The company’s CEO confirmed that the Mi Band 2 will land next month, and that the Mi Drone was launching soon, though he wasn’t all that specific. Interesting enough, Lei Jun also mentioned ‘Xiaomi VR’, which is probably the company’s virtual reality headset. Xiaomi’s CEO said that Xiaomi VR is in development, though he was rather unspecific on when can we expect the product to land. Lei Jun has also mentioned that the curved display smartphone and wireless charging are coming soon, and that the company is considering making their very own robot, believe it or not. The split screen MIUI feature has also been confirmed by Mr. Jun, and he did not want to comment on the Xiaomi SoC, Notebook or the Mi Note 2, he labeled those products as ‘top secret’, so we’ll probably have to wait a bit longer before we hear more about them.
All in all, it seems like we have plenty to look forward to, Xiaomi is planning to release quite a few devices in the coming months. The Xiaomi Mi Band and Xiaomi Drone are almost certainly going to land first, and it remains to be seen what will follow after that. Xiaomi is aiming to do better than last year and sell over 70 million smartphones, it will certainly going to be interesting to see if they can pull it off, but the year sure does look promising for Xiaomi, as long as they manage to expand further outside of China.
