You read that right. Xiaomi is today expanding its Mi ecosystem in India with the addition of four new products, but we are not sure if any of them will get you excited. For starters, the company has made its fitness band, Mi Band 2’s charging cable available for those we’ve lost it or are looking for a secondary one. It’s priced at Rs 129 and you can purchase it starting from midnight today on Xiaomi’s own website. It’s slightly surprising that they didn’t have the spare charging cable on sale all these days.
The rest of the launches are non-tech. There’s the Mi Rollerball Pen that comes with an aluminum exterior and costs rs 179. It’s available only in a single color option, white for now. Very premium, very sturdy, and we hope they will have the refills on sale as well.
In addition to that, the list includes Xiaomi’s travel pillow that’s priced at Rs 999 and can be bought in either grey or beige. Lastly, the Mi “I Love Mi” t-shirt has been added to the company’s existing line of merchandise. It’s priced at Rs 399 and will be available in three shades — grey, black, and white. “It is made out of soft, blended fabric which offers comfort all day long“. All of these accessories will go on sale at midnight today on Mi.com.
Xiaomi has been gradually developing its Mi ecosystem in the country. Just recently, the company introduced a travel backpack, the Mi Body Composition scale, and of course, at the beginning of the year, the Mi TV line of televisions was made available in India as well. But these four latest additions are far from exciting. Xiaomi is probably looking at products which don’t need extensive certifications and logistical/support headaches to bring to India right now.
