Xiaomi is popular for making mobile phones and associated accessories, but the brand has a much wider portfolio of products in China that ranges from a toothbrush to a 150-inch wall projector. The company wants to establish itself in the long run and has been trying to launch new Mi Home products in India.

Now, the company has announced the launch of the Mi Band 3, Mi Home Security 360 Camera, Mi Luggage, three Mi TVs, and Mi Air Purifier 2S. Except for the Mi Luggage, all other products are connected to the internet and play a key role in setting up the brand’s ecosystem.

Mi Band 3

The fitness tracker is experiencing high demand in the country thanks to its assertive pricing. It has a heart rate sensor, a slightly bigger OLED display, 20 days of battery life, and incoming calls and messages notifications. It has been priced at INR 1,999 (US$ 27) and will be available via Mi.com and Amazon.in.

Mi TVs

Three new TVs have made their way to India: Mi TV 4 Pro, Mi TV 4A Pro, and Mi TV 4C Pro. They run on Android TV out of the box and also have Xiaomi’s proprietary PatchWall platform installed. PatchWall is an algorithm-based discovery software that combines all your apps like Netflix, Prime Video, and YouTube to create a single UI. The best part is, PatchWall also works will almost all DTH set-top boxes in India.

The Mi TV 4 Pro has a 55-inch 4K panel and is priced at INR 49,999 (US$ 690). The Mi TV 4A Pro owns a 49-inch Full HD panel and is priced at INR 29,999 (US$ 413). Lastly, the Mi TV 4C Pro is equipped with a 32-inch HD panel and a price of INR 14,999 (US$ 206).

Mi Home Security 360 Camera

This home surveillance camera offers 360-degree coverage and comes equipped with infrared night vision, intelligent motion detection, and real-time two-way talk. It has a microSD card slot for local storage and a 64GB card can store up to five days of recorded footage. The camera is very easy to use and can be controlled via the Mi Home app. It is priced at INR 2,699 (US$ 37) and will be up for sale starting October 10.

Mi Air Purifier 2S

The Mi Air Purifier 2S has a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of up to 310m³/h and continues the previous design of a cylindrical filter structure. The purifier has a small OLED display that can show real-time PM2.5 levels and 0.3μm particles in the room. The purifier can be controlled via the Mi Home app and can also utilize Google Assistant and Alexa. It is priced at INR 8,999 (US$ 124) and is available via Mi.com and Flipkart.com.

Mi Luggage

This is the only device here that isn’t “smart” or connected to the internet. The suitcase is built from resilient polycarbonate fiber and the wheels are buttery smooth. The combination lock is TSA-approved and comes in two sizes: the Mi Luggage 20 is priced at INR 2,999 (US$ 41) while the Mi Luggage 24 is priced at INR 4,299 (US$ 60).

Nomad launches Ultra Orange cases for iPhone 14 Pro

Discount for pre-orders!

Published

It’s never too late to accessorize for your new iPhone 14 Pro. With Apple’s price tags still as high as they are, it’s important to protect your investment for the next few years. Unfortunately, a lot of rugged cases don’t prioritize fashion. If you’re looking for the perfect blend of glitz and protection, look no further than Nomad and its new Ultra Orange lineup.

The new lineup of cases — built specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max — are delectably minimalist. The orange polycarbonate frame with a PET backplate can both protect your new phone and dazzle while on the go. Plus, durable TPU bumpers saves your hardware from drops of up to 15 feet.

Meanwhile, dual lanyard slots will add convenience if you need both hands for something else. Also, if you’ve bought into Apple’s wireless charging system, the Nomad case is still compatible with the brand’s MagSafe products.

To complement your phone, the collection also has an Ultra Orange sports band for the 45mm Apple Watch and Watch Ultra. The band is both lightweight and durable to provide comfort and durability throughout the day.

The Nomad Ultra Orange iPhone 14 Pro case will retail for US$ 49.95. Meanwhile, the Ultra Orange Sport Band will retail for US$ 59.95. Both are limited edition and will start shipping in November. Pre-orders will grab an additional percent discount.
