Xiaomi planning to launch Mi Drone on 25 May


Xiaomi is one company that has its hands in many product categories, only a fraction of which are available in India. Come 25 May, and we are going to see Xiaomi get into yet another product category – Drones!

In a forum post last week, Super moderator vincent_khoo teased the image of what seems to be a Daydream-ready drone. This was further confirmed by a tweet from Xiaomi’s India head Manu Jain where he tweeted an image asking followers to guess what it was.

According to GSMArena, the device will not come cheap and the price of the drone is expected to be in the region of CNY 3,999 (approx Rs 41,500).

The teaser image shows a quadrocopter with a camera in-built. Rumours have it that the camera is capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps. The drone may also be controlled by the Mi Band as well as hand gestures. It will naturally come with its own smartphone app as well. More details of the drone will only be known on 25 May.
