Xiaomi gets fresh
Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi has gone somewhat off-piste with the launch of its smart air purifier, the Mi. However, the device can be linked to a smartphone, enabling users to control it remotely. Where does the smart bit come in? Apparently, the purifier detects air conditions in real time and tells users when to turn it on. On the tech spec side, the Mi cleans 10,000 liters of air minute, reduces 99.99% of PM2 particles, 99.3% of PMO.3 particles and 91% of formaldehyde. The price of clean air? Around $145.
Fast fact: Xiaomi launching its smartphones in India was the sixth-most-discussed topic on Facebook in India this year.
