Chinese Apple competitor Xiaomi announces brand new smart home gadgets
Last week the Chinese tech giant Xiaomi – also known as the ‘Asian Apple’ – announced a brand new line of smart home products to complement their highly succesfull smarthpone sales!
You might have heard of Xiaomi or even seen one of their succesfull Mi smartphones. The Chinese based company is widely regarded as a prime example of how Chinese companies can compete in the west by offering exceptionally high quality products, not unlike Apple.
The new smart products are focused on home usage and will include things like smart light bulbs, a power plug connected to the internet and even a ‘smart’ webcam. Details about these products are yet unknown but should become available in the upcoming weeks.
We don’t know if the new products will have their own unique app which will give users full control of their homes or if the required software will be built into a future software update for the Mii smartphone family.
A spokesman of the company told Tech In Asia that there’s currently a beta program running with more than 200 participants in China meaning that we can expect an official release somewhere in the upcoming two months or so.
