The New Mi Notebook is getting a serious upgrade
Xiaomi has been teasing the new Mi Notebook for quite a while now. The upcoming Mi Notebook is confirmed to feature a backlit keyboard and built-in webcam. The new Mi branded laptops are expected to be costlier than before, but it is also said to bring serious upgrades compared to the Mi Notebook 14 series. Moreover, the Mi Notebook 14 series will be discontinued upon the launch of the new series.
“The new Mi Notebook will be a serious upgrade on what we had to offer last year. You will see a lot of class-leading features on the new model. We believe that the creator economy wants laptops that are not just good from the processing point of view but, also from the display point of view. That’s what you will get to see on the new Mi Notebook,” Reddy said in an interaction with India Today.
Mi Band 6 incoming
Xiaomi will also introduce the much-awaited Mi Band 6 in India during its Smarter Living event on August 26. Mi Band has been a huge success for Xiaomi in India, and Mi Band 6 has been pitched as a huge upgrade over its predecessors. Xiaomi’s latest fitness band comes with a larger 1.56-inch AMOLED touchscreen display. It offers a battery life of 14 days on a single charge. The Mi Band 6 comes with 24×7 blood pressure monitoring, blood oxygen (SPO2), heart-rate monitoring and sleep tracking. It also supports up to 30 sports modes and can auto-detect six different activities.

More IoT products are en route
In an interaction with Moneycontrol, Reddy also confirmed the arrival of a new Wi-Fi router and security camera. He didn’t specify any particulars, but he did tell the publication that the upcoming Wi-Fi router would be priced higher than the Mi Router 4C, and we will have to wait till the launch for more details. The company currently offers the Mi Router 4C in India, which retails for Rs. 999.
Speaking about the security camera, Raghu said, “We thought it will be required in homes for people to keep a track of their kids or you know some elderly people at home or their pets, etc. But when we actually look around, we see what all it’s been used for and it amazes us.” Xiaomi currently offers two security cameras in the country, the Mi Home Security Camera 360 and Mi Home Security Camera Basic.
Raghu said that the brand would follow its “honest pricing” strategy for its upcoming IoT products on the pricing front.
