Rumors about the launch of the Xiaomi smartwatch have been around for sometime now, and it seems we may get to see one in the coming months.
At a press event in Beijing, Liu De, the co-founder and Vice President of Xiaomi revealed that the smartwatch is already in works and will launch in the second half of the year.
The company is expected to launch the next iteration of the Mi Band 2 and MIUI OS at a press event on May 10th, but we don’t expect to see the smartwatch at the event. This is the first time the Chinese company has confirmed the existence of the Xiaomi smartwatch.
The report from GizmoChina further reveals that the company don’t plan to enter the automobile market, but there’s a possibility of other products such as electric bikes and self-balancing walking robots like Ninebot.
Now that the company has officially confirmed the existence of the smartwatch, we’re hoping to get more information about the upcoming smartwatch from the Chinese manufacturer. We’ll update you if we get to hear anything more about the upcoming device.
