Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier Pro with OLED Display and RFID Technology Launched at $220
Xiaomi has now added yet another device to their smart home range in the form of Mi Air Purifier Pro. It’s an enhanced version of the Mi Air Purifier 2 that currently retails in India for Rs 9,999.
The Mi Air Purifier Pro shares a similar external footprint with its predecessor. The main external difference, however, lies in the presence of an OLED display that shows real-time air quality and the condition of the surrounding including temperature, humidity etc. The circular display is surrounded by a ring that shows three types of colors namely green, yellow and red depending on the air quality of the surrounding. The display comes with an ambient light sensor that adjusts the brightness of the panel depending on the external lighting. That aside, it is smart enough to get turned at night to prevent disturbing you during sleep.
The Mi Air Purifier Pro comes with improved air filtering capabilities. It uses a newly designed air flow pathway and a pressurized system that enables it to boast of a CADR (Clean Air Delivery Rate) of 500m/h. Xiaomi claims that their new Mi Air Purifier Pro is 61% more effective in purifying the air as compared to the last generation model. Besides that, the new air purifier is capable of purifying air over a range of 60 square meters, which is a vast improvement over the Mi Air Purifier 2.
The smart air purifier features a high precision laser sensor that accurately detects particles of up to 0.3 μm diameter. This apparently makes it faster than most other purifier in the market, while boasting of instantaneous data that’s being displayed on the OLED display located to the front of the device. It’s worth noting the filter inside the Mi Air Purifier Pro makes use of RFID technology for real-time monitoring of the filter for a long duration. The latest air purifier from Xiaomi apparently makes use of three layers of filters including PET, Toray, and Activated Carbon.
The Xiaomi Mi Air Purifier Pro goes on sale in China starting November 11 at 1499 Yuan (Rs 14,759/$220 approx.) It will be available via Xiaomi’s official website, their crowdfunding portal Mijia, JD.com and a number of other Chinese retailers.
