Xiaomi expected to release a new electric bike or a car (?) on Monday, following a recent tease on Weibo. The CHinese company also on Friday launched its Yeelight LED Ceiling Light.
Xiaomi's sub-brand MIJIA has shared a teaser image suggesting that the company will unveil a new electric bike (or a car?) on Monday.
The teaser image shared on Weibo shows a tyre skid mark on the background suggesting it is some kind of vehicle. Since the company has launched an electric bike in the past, dubbed Qicycle Electric Folding Bike, it's possible the company to be launching a new model. However, it may be an electric car as well. The shared teaser image also includes E-ABS short for electric anti-lock braking system, regenerative braking (seen mostly in electric cars), cruise control, and perforated disc brakes.
Xiaomi also today unveiled the new Yeelight LED Ceiling Light priced at CNY 349 (approximately Rs. 3,500). The Yeelight LED Ceiling Light can be pre-ordered through the company's Mi Smart Home crowdfunding platform. It is expected to start shipping from December 29.
Xiaomi claims that the Yeelight LED Ceiling Light takes merely 5-minutes of installation time, and uses a 240-colour rendering index of up to 95 Lumileds. The Yeelight LED Ceiling Light comes with a life expectancy up to 25,000 hours and is rated power is 28W. The biggest highlight of the new ceiling light from Xiaomi is it can be controlled via Android or iOS mobile app. It also comes with IP60 dust-proof design.
