Xiaomi is all set to launch its first product in the Mi Ecosystem in India. The company has sent out invites to the media for an event on September 21, where we'll see the Mi Air Purifier 2 make its debut in the country.
Xiaomi launched its Mi Ecosystem sub-brand earlier this year with a $150 rice cooker, following it up with a $250 vacuum cleaner. Earlier products from the manufacturer, like the Mi Air Purifier, and smart lights, are now a part of the Mi Ecosystem as well.
The first Mi Ecosystem product to launch in India will be the Mi Air Purifier 2, which offers a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 388 cubic meters an hour. The device comes with a pre-filter, a HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter, and makes just 30db of noise when in quiet mode. The air purifier is sold in China for ¥699 ($104), and it is likely the device will cost under ₹10,000 in India.
With the rise in pollution levels — particularly in North India — companies like Philips are seeing an uptick in sales of air purifiers. With its disruptive pricing, Xiaomi has a chance to grab an early foothold in the segment. Unlike standard air purifiers, you'll be able to control the Mi Air Purifier 2 remotely through the Mi Home app.
We'll bring you all the details from the ground, so stay tuned to Android Central for more from Xiaomi.
