We are a day away from when Xiaomi will present its first smartwatch, but we already know everything about the wearable. Today, a handy image of the Mi Watch appeared on the web. The watch looks a lot like the Apple Watch in appearance.
The Mi Watch seems to be heavily inspired by the Apple Watch. The leaked image shows the Mi Watch with a square-shaped screen, rounded corners, a crown button on the right side, and a small pill-shaped button below. In other words, the Mi Watch will be a replica of the Apple Watch.
In a separate article, Xiaomi confirmed that the smartwatch will feature a sapphire crystal on its front side which is scratch and scratch resistant. The Apple Watch Series 5 also has a sapphire crystal on the front of the watch.
As for what’s new in the Mi Watch, reports claim that the smartwatch will run WearOS from Google and a Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset. The watch is also expected to feature Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, an eSIM for LTE connectivity. and a speaker.
Xiaomi making a WearOS smartwatch should be a big deal. WearOS watches have struggled due to poor software implementation and higher prices. If Xiaomi makes the watch available for less than $ 200, it could increase the penetration of smartwatches in countries like India.
Besides the Mi Watch, Xiaomi will also unveil Mi Note 10, a phone that many say will feature a 108MP camera. Xiaomi will talk more about the phone and the smartwatch at the launch event in China.
