It’s been long rumored that Xiaomi is working on a smartwatch. Earlier rumors said the smartwatch was delayed to second half of this year.

The latest set of information comes via Chinese Mobile Phone League Secretary General who shared the information on Weibo.

According to the new information, Xiaomi’s smartwatch could be released this month itself. Interesting tidbit is that the Mi smartwatch would not come with an ultra-affordable price tag. A few reports said that the Mi smartwatch could be priced somewhere around 999 Yuan, which is Rs 10,000 approximately. From what we have heard so far, this upcoming smartwatch is being built by Huami, the company which makes the Mi Bands for Xiaomi. In a recent interview, Huami’s CEO Wang confirmed that they are working on a smartwatch. Also Read - Xiaomi devices to receive Android 13 update: Mi 11 Pro, Poco M4 5G, Redmi 10 and more

Ahead of the launch, we have come across a few renders of the Mi smartwatch. The leaked renders hint that the device will come with a circular display and a Mi logo at the top, similar to the Apple Watch. There are two physical buttons on the right side as well.

Along with the Mi smartwatch, Xiaomi will also launch the Redmi 4 smartphone, which is the successor of the Redmi 3/ 3s. The smartphone was recently spotted on Geekbench, revealing some important specifications.

Xiaomi Redmi 4 specifications

According to the Geekbench listing, the Xaiomi Redmi 4 will feature a 5-inch full HD (1080p) display. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.02GHz and paired with Adreno 506 GPU and 3GB of RAM. However there were previous leaks that suggested that the Redmi 4 will run MediaTek’s Helio X20 deca-core chipset under the hood. So it might be possible that Xiaomi might be working on two variants, and it would launch the MediaTek variant in China and the Qualcomm version in India. It is likely to come with the same 4,100mAh battery as the Redmi 3s Prime with support for fast charge.

Besides the smartwatch and new smartphones, Xiaomi is also planning to launch the next-generation Mi Band 2 in this quarter. We are likely to find out more details about Xiaomi’s plans on August 25.
