Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, the brand has launched a new mask that’s called the Mi KN95 mask. It has four-layer protection, out of which two layers consist of melt-blown fabric for bacterial and small particle filtration.

“The microfiltration material used in the mask is soft, lightweight, and gentle on your skin ensuring that anyone can wear it for long hours,” the company noted in a release. The nose pin is also firm to ensure there is no leakage that leads to the fogging of glasses.

A pack of 2 of Mi KN95 mask costs INR 250 (US$ 3.4) while a pack of 5 goes for INR 600 (US$ 8.2). The masks will be available at Mi.com, Mi Homes, and retail stores.

Xiaomi is popularly perceived to be a smartphone maker. But the brand is much bigger than just smartphones and makes literally everything, right from shoes to televisions. The company has previously launched pollution masks that are extremely well-built in quality.

Due to the spread of Coronavirus, it’s always recommended that you wear a mask when outdoors or meeting someone. Public health authorities across the globe have urged citizens to practice social distancing. Thoroughly wash your hands with soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer and avoid contact with your face.

Both colors evoke a classy and sexy appeal, especially when paired with neutral and monochromatic outfits. Use these colors when you want to make a statement without being overbearing.

Sleek, serious, and straightforward
