Chinese gadget maker Xiaomi has scheduled a media event for March 31, which is expected to see the unveiling of a number of new devices. In addition to a new midrange smartphone, recent reports have indicated that Xiaomi’s first smartwatch could be on the way.
But based on the wording of the company’s announcements, “it looks like we’ll see more than one new product making its debut next week,” AndroidCentral reports.
A recent leak suggests one of Xiaomi’s new products is an impressive midrange smartphone codenamed Ferrari, which features a 4.9-inch Full HD display, a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The device is expected to be Xiaomi’s first smartphone that ships with the company’s latest MIUI operating system based on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
Other reports have promised us a new “Mi Watch” that hopes to take on the Apple Watch and Android Wear devices — plus a second-generation Mi Band with an improved design and built-in NFC for one-touch connectivity.
We’ll be following Xiaomi’s event on March 31, so keep an eye on AndroidBeat for all the announcements as they break.
