Xiaomi is readying an announcement of their first drone. Xiaomi — who has shown a great deal of diversity over the years — is planning to reveal it May 25th.
You’d expect Xiaomi to hit the market with something cheap as the company emphasizes affordability above all else, but their drone could be a vastly different story. Rumors say that the thing will record up to 4K HD video, and while there aren’t many other details known about it, we’re sure there will be a few other quality features in tow.
As such, Xiaomi is going to be releasing one of their most expensive devices yet, with rumors suggesting it’ll launch in the $600 range. That’s about middle of the road for consumer-focused drones, so we aren’t expecting the world. But it’s still a pretty big price tag for a Xiaomi device so we’re interested to see what kind of tricks they’re looking to wow us with once the announcement is made.
