Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi is gearing up to announce five new products in India on September 27. These products include a new smartphone, air purifier, television, security camera and a fitness band. Teaser page of these products, except for the smartphone, is already live on Amazon India, confirming that at least four of these products would be available exclusively on the e-commerce platform.

Xiaomi has been teasing the upcoming products on social media channels, sharing hints on what to expect from the upcoming devices. The company’s Twitter channel now has a new cover image with a title ‘Smarter Living’ embossed on a red background featuring at least four products i.e. a fitness band, voice-enabled television, smartphone and a security camera.

Xiaomi Mi Band 3

The upcoming fitness band is expected to be the Mi Band 3, a successor of the Mi Band 2 that was launched in India in 2016. The Mi Band 3 was launched in China earlier this year. Compared to the Mi Band 2, the Mi Band 3 features a bigger capacitive OLED screen with curved edges. The water resistant fitness band also features near field communication (NFC) chip for one touch connectivity. The Mi Band 3 is also capable of receiving app and call notifications and has motion tracking and health management features. The Mi Band 3 is compatible with devices running Android 4.4 and above or iOS 9.0 and above.
