Xiaomi Brings USB-C Charging To Men’s Portable Electric Shaver For Just $27

Xiaomi may have built its name in copying products of some of the more established brands, but there’s no denying the company is trying its best to innovate. One of such example of the company’s innovation would be this shaver under the company’s sub-brand, Mijia. If I am not wrong, this is the first electric shaver from the brand. Now, a shaver by itself is clearly nothing new, but what makes Mijia Portable Electric Shaver so special is not just the Xiaomi’s now signature minimalistic design; it is probably the first electric shaver in the market to tout recharging via USB-C. Yup. USB-C has arrived to shaver. So, I guess it is a ‘yay’? Maybe? Continue reading Xiaomi Brings USB-C Charging To Men’s Portable Electric Shaver For Just $27

Xiaomi Outs Its Biggest Air Purifier Yet That Can Cover 1,291 SqFt In 3 Minutes

When it comes to designing and making products that cover every aspect of your life, Xiaomi is relentless. And they don’t just do it as a one-time product for each product under its wings. Take for example the Mi Air Purifier. The return-to-glory Chinese company has not one, not two, but five Air Purifiers under its belt and today, it has added one more to the catalog: the Mi Air Purifier Max.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Series Touts 18:9 Display, Decent Specs With Budget Stickers

Xiaomi is relentless in turning out new phones (or any product for that matter). The Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is the latest to be announced, just in time to provide the much needed breather from the ever increasing smartphone prices. I was never into Redmi because the design was pretty yucky IMHO. However, the 5 series is entirely different. It has a wee bit of wow factor in the design aspect. Never mind that it looks like a mashup of a Samsung, HTC and iPhone, it is quite pleasing to the eyes – thanks in part to the FullView display that engulfed almost the entire front.

Xiaomi Wants To Give You 365 Blessings Via A Vintage Chinese Calendar

As we all know, Xiaomi is more than a handset maker. It makes a variety of home appliances and… no, wait. It actually makes just about everything and now, even calendar. No, not a digital version on a digital display. That will be so predictable and so very unnecessary in today’s context. We are talking about the good’ol paper calendar. Yup. Paper. Shocking right? Like, how many times you actually flip a paper calendar? Or do you just whip out your smartphone? I think get what I mean. However, this particular calendar is really a lifestyle product.

Here Are Some New Gadgets From Xiaomi For This Holiday Season

When it comes to the holiday season, no businesses and manufacturers will want to miss on the opportunity bank on the holiday season shopping craze. This is true everywhere that celebrates Christmas and that obviously includes the U.S. As it turns out, not only China giants like Haier, Hisense and TCL understands this; Xiaomi, the one of the world’s largest phone makers, is not going to miss out this once-a-year golden opportunity outside of their home base. For the uninitiated, Xiaomi is not just about handsets you can’t get in the U.S. you hear so often; it also makes a gazillion of other products, including educational toys, home appliances, and a bunch of other electronics.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Is ‘Edgeless’, Smaller But Packs Higher Resolution

China’s prolific handset maker (or maker of all things sellable, really) may not be the first to tout bezel-less display, but it was among the first to recognize the potential and hopped onto the bandwagon fairly swiftly with the Mi Mix introduced last year. Nearly a year on, a second iteration was born and like the first, the Mi Mix 2 is beautiful, lent to it by an incredibly expansive display and a unibody ceramic construction. It is again, a product touched by contemporary design maestro, Philippe Starck. Xiaomi may have started out imitating others, but along the way, the company has matured, developing its own vision in the area of innovations.

Xiaomi’s First Pure Android Phone, The Mi A1, Is Certainly Not A Budget Phone

Now that Google Nexus is officially dead and Android One has mysteriously gone quite for a while now, your only hope for pure Android experience, i.e. Android without bloatware, would be Google-sanctioned devices such as the Pixel line is your only hope. That said, unlike Android One or even the Nexus line, pure Android experience is not for the budget-conscious. Right now, Pixel is premium and alternatives like OnePlus, Motorola and more recently the Essential Phone, which are the closest you can get to pure Android experience, aren’t cheap as well. Continue reading Xiaomi’s First Pure Android Phone, The Mi A1, Is Certainly Not A Budget Phone

Did You Know Xiaomi Has A Tablet That Is Also A Transformers Robot?

Yes. There is a ‘transforming’ Xiaomi tablet, but it is not kind of transformer tablet you may have imagined. It’s a toy, which is what makes it so interesting. Seriously, I don’t know how we managed to miss this exciting news when it was out last year. But hey, you know what they say? It’s better late than never. Anyways, last year, U.S. toy giant Hasbro and China handset maker Xiaomi jointly released a toy inspired by the iconic Decepticon robot, Soundwave, from the Transformers franchise. Kids of the eighties will remember Soundwave as the robot that masquerade as a cassette tape recorder that commands a bunch of cassette tape robot minions.

Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Smart Sneakers Rolled In $640K On Mi ‘Crowdfunding’

It is well known fact that China’s prominent maker of handset, Xiaomi, makes more than just handsets and tablets. Fitness tracking shoes is one of the many other things it makes. It is listed on the company’s website, but this pair you see here, called Xiaomi ‘Intel Inside’ Ultra Smart Running Shoes, is a tad different. But before we dig in more, there’s something that I think we need to clear the air first. On contrary to what other blogs perceived, this pair of smart sneakers is not called “90 minutes.” Yes. It does have what read like “90 minutes” in Chinese at the beginning of the product name, but it can also interpret as 90 points, as in a score, but anyways, that’s not the point.

Guess What? Xiaomi’s New Mi 6 Has No Headphone Jack Too

I don’t think Apple did pull off the no headphone jack thing. Some users are still sore about it and despite so, it is not going to stop China handset maker, Xiaomi, from doing the same. Yes. You heard that right. Xiaomi’s latest flagship, the Mi 6, has no headphone jack. I don’t know if it go down well with China users, so, I guess we just have to wait it out and see how the masses react to this ‘devastating news’. The shock of no headphone jack aside, Mi 6 does bring some good news to those tight on budget but still wanting the latest in mobile processing because the Mi 6 is the first Chinese handset to flaunt Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 System-on-Chip, a much sought after chip that has so far seen on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium with 4K HDR display.
