Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Finally Launches in India at a Price of Rs 1,999

Xiaomi announced major upgrades to its Mi TV portfolio. With Android TV and Google Assistant thrown in the mix, Xiaomi is head and shoulders above anyone else in this segment.

However, this time around, PatchWall is built with Android TV (Android 8.1 Oreo) with Google TV services and Play Store built-in.

The Mi Band, just like Mi Band 2 comes with hypoallergenic durable silicone strap and weighs 20 grams which makes it light enough to wear the Band for the entire day easily. It also shows notifications from WhatsApp and the messages can be viewed on the smart band itself.

For better security, Xiaomi has launched Mi Home security camera 360-degree in India for Rs 2,699. The AI part helps it record videos in full HD that can be magnified up to 2x zoom if it detects any movement.

The company will be live streaming the event from 12:00PM today.

The top 55-inch variant is priced at 49,999 rupees, the mid-tier 49-inch variant is priced at 29,999 rupees, and the lowest 32-inch variant is priced at 14,999 rupees.

The Mi Band 3 is priced at Rs 1,999 and will go on sale tomorrow via Mi.com and Flipkart. The security camera will be available in India for the first time on Oct 10 on Mi.com, Amazon India, and Flipkart.

Xiaomi has launched Mi Luggage in two sizes - 20-inch and 24-inch for Rs 2,999 and Rs 4,299. The battery is 60 percent bigger than its predecessor and the company claims that it provides 3x longer battery life compared to other popular fitness trackers in the market. The three new Mi TV models sport three HDMI ports, 2 USB port, and an S/PDIF port. 2GB RAM/ 8GB of inbuilt storage is present on 49-inch and 55-inch models while the 32-inch model gets 1GB RAM/ 8GB storage.

MiAir Purifier 2S will go on sale tomorrow at 12:00 noon via mi.com and AmazonIndia.

It can be remotely accessed via the Mi Home app.

MiAir Purifier 2S comes with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built-in. The camera can be controlled via Mi Home app. It is an upgrade over the Mi Air Purifier with a digital OLED display, precise air purification and smarter home integration. All the new Mi TV models, much like the previous ones, will be powered by Xiaomi's custom PatchWall UI that has been personalised for Indian users. The Mi Band 3 can display up to 24 characters. Its touch interface will cater to call notifications as well as incoming messages. It has a curved 2.5D design, and a hypoallergenic durable strap. The products that are slated to be launched include Mi Band 3, as well as new smart TVs, an air purifier and a CCTV camera among other products. It is water resistant up to 50m and has a 110mAh battery.

Xiaomi could launch a total of five brand new Smart Living products today. The company will launch smart home and internet-of-things (IoT) products. Soon after, a teaser page for the fitness tracker went now live on Amazon India. We expect only the standard base variant of the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 without the NFC feature to arrive today.

The Mi Air Purifier 2S is the successor to the Mi Air Purifier 2 which features an OLED display that displays real-time air quality information and lets you toggle between modes. The company managed to sell over 500,000 units in just six months, a notable achievement considering the smart TV space in India is still in its infancy. The Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) 310 cubic meters/hour brings a cleaning range of 226 - 398 sq. ft to the Mi Air Purifier 2S. It also has lifestyle products like the Mi Rollerball Pen, backpacks, and apparel.

Xiaomi is known to keep the prices of its TVs very attractive, and the products launching today should not be an exception. The TVs come with Mi Remote using which you can control the TV as well as other integrated devices like the Mi Air Purifier through voice commands.
