Guess what Xiaomi is going to add to its product offerings in India at their upcoming Smart Living 2020 event on September 17. It will be a Mi water purifier, as the tweets of Global VP Manu Kumar Jain suggest.
Recently, the Chinese corporation has launched a TDS meter in India, used for testing the hardness of the water. The company seems to be taking the next step in the water business by launching the Mi water purifier in the country.
The water purifier is expected to be designed in the line of its Chinese counterpart. The Chinese model is called “Lentils”, named after the lentil plant due to its chic design and three purification chambers that look like seeds inside the lentils pod. The water purifier also contains a small water tank with a storage capacity of 3 liters.
Pricing for Mi Water Purifier
However, the pricing of the upcoming Mi water purifier is not yet confirmed. The Chinese model is sold at a price of 999 yuan, which means roughly Rs.10,000. Mr. Jain stated in his tweets that the water purifying device will be launched with Indian consumers in mind. This implies that the device could possibly be launched at a lower price.
It is to be noted that the water purifier put on sale at Xiaomi’s global website is mainly a reverse osmosis (RO) based water purifier. The device, simply called the Mi Water Purifier, has a 4-step purification process using a PP cotton filter, activated carbon pre-filter, RO filter, and an activated carbon filter. Just like other ‘smart’ devices by Xiaomi, the Mi Water Purifier is Wi-Fi enabled so that the user can monitor the quality of the water with the help of a smartphone app in real-time.
At the Smart Living 2020 event, Xiaomi will also launch a host of other devices apart from the rumored water purifier. These devices include a 65-inch Mi TV and Mi Band 4.
