After launching the Mi Air Purifier 2 in India a few years ago, Xiaomi is launching an updated variant that offers a set of upgrades. The Mi Air Purifier 2S is now live in the country, and the highlight is that it comes with an OLED display and an air quality monitor that shows off real-time air quality. The display has an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness based on the lighting levels in your home.
What I'm particularly interested in is the fact that the Mi Air Purifier 2S integrates with Google Assistant and Alexa, allowing you to use the product with your voice. You'll be able to switch the air purifier on or off, or change modes as needed. It also has a temperature and humidity sensor built in, and the air quality monitor
The Air Purifier 2S retains the same design as its predecessor, including a 360-degree filter with activated charcoal. The filter is designed to weed out up to 95% of PM2.5 particles, cleans at 310 CADR, and is very energy efficient.
The Mi Air Purifier 2S is set to go on sale in India for just ₹8,999 ($125). The added features — including the display and Assistant/Alexa integration — make it one of the best products in this category, and you'll be able to pick up the Mi Air Purifier 2S from Mi Home stores and Amazon starting later this week.
In addition to the air purifier, Xiaomi is also bringing its luggage products to India. The 21-inch and 24-inch suitcases will also be up for sale at Mi Home stores across the country from October 10.
