Remember Xiaomi? The company that is aimed at competing with Apple? Although they initially launched some devices in Nigeria, they seem not to be creating a lot of buzz around here – at least, not to my ears.
The brand, according to latest numbers from IDC, may no longer be one of the top five smartphone makers in the world, they’ve still got much cool plans on their table.
Vice-President, Xiaomi Co-founder and head of industrial design, Liu De, made it known at a conference in Beijing that the company would be launching it’s first ever Xiaomi smartwatch before the end of the year. Although no specific details as to when the smartwatch will be launched neither were specs of the smartwatch disclosed, it is being speculated that the device would be released in the second half of the year being 2016.
The upcoming Xioami smartwatch won’t be the company’s first wearable as the brand already has the Xiaomi Band and the Band 2 which is expected to be released in a few weeks.
