Xiaomi Introduces Latest Mid-Range and Entry-Level Kings: Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T

Beijing, CHINA, January 8, 2021 –– Global technology leader Xiaomi today announced the addition of two new Redmi smartphones: Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T. The first-ever 5G smartphone in the Redmi Note series, Redmi Note 9T offers affordability and dual 5G SIM capability. The new kings of mid-range and entry-level, Redmi Note 9T and Redmi 9T were designed to deliver the exceptional performance and multi-day battery life that users crave without compromising on photography capabilities and overall design.

Redmi Note 9T

Advanced processor, monumental 5G performance

Powered by MediaTek’s 5G-capable Dimensity 800U SoC, Redmi Note 9T is up to 100% faster than previous generations1. Along with its integrated modem, Redmi Note 9T boasts tremendous power efficiency with its octa-core processor and 7nm process technology.
Featuring 5G-connectivity on two SIM cards simultaneously — a first in the Redmi Note series — Redmi Note 9T is a productivity beast. With 4×4 MIMO technology and antenna diversity, Redmi Note 9T brings faster, more reliable connections — even in congested conditions. 

Capture stellar content with Redmi Note 9T’s 48MP camera

Flaunting a 48MP triple rear-camera with a 2MP depth sensor and 2MP macro lens, Redmi Note 9T makes even novice users feel like professional photographers. Its large ½-inch sensor and flagship-level ISP architecture allow for improved image quality and faster processing, while its creativity tools — such as Night, Pro + RAW, HDR and Portrait mode — let users capture the perfect shot, no matter the circumstances.

Brilliant design, durable build 

Purposefully designed, Redmi Note 9T was crafted for a stylish look and feel with its 6.53” FHD+ DotDisplay front and Unibody 3D curved back. Its textured polycarbonate back offers improved grip and resistance from fingerprints, and its Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 safeguards against costly damage from accidental falls and drops. 
Widevine L1 and TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certified, Redmi Note 9T was built to handle hours of HD content streaming without the annoying eye strain. With its convenient side fingerprint sensor, Redmi Note 9T can unlock seamlessly. 
Redmi Note 9T is available in two captivating color variants — Nightfall Black and Daybreak Purple — that’ll never go out of style.

Optimum performance with high-capacity battery

Packing a punch with its 5,000mAh (typ) battery and advanced, high-efficiency processor technology, Redmi Note 9T dispels battery anxiety and provides a perfect blend of performance and power efficiency for the 5G era. Redmi Note 9T offers 18W fast charging and comes with an in-box 22.5W charger.

Develop cinematic photos, spend less time editing

Redmi 9T is a photography powerhouse with its 48MP AI quad rear-camera. The device’s 8MP ultra-wide angle camera accommodates large group photos and wide landscape shots without cropping, while its 2MP macro lens and 2MP depth sensor enable stunning close-up shots with professional-level bokeh. Redmi 9T is also equipped with a new movie frame feature that gives photos a more cinematic look and feel without editing. It also sports a new time-lapse feature which offers various speed and duration values for shooting so users can capture creative time-lapse photos without tapping a DSLR or other professional camera. 

Performance shines through with powerful chipset and high-capacity battery

Despite its lightweight design, Redmi 9T packs a punch with its 6,000mAh (typ) battery and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 662 chipset. Combined with its 11nm energy-efficient processor, Redmi 9T delivers higher performance with less heat production and lower power consumption than previous generations. Moreover, MIUI battery saving mode and reverse wired charging capabilities help maximize all-day, and even multi-day usage.

New survey finds 70% of consumers improved home during COVID-19, more than half used smart devices

Smart home solutions are helping consumers adapt to more time at home during pandemic.

New York, N.Y. January 5, 2021 A new study released today by Xiaomi, a global leader in smart devices, found that since March 2020, 70% of consumers have reported making changes in their living environment due to spending more time at home during the pandemic, and more than half (51%) have reported purchasing at least one smart device during that period.

Stay-at-home orders changed the very notion of how people interact and live in their homes, driving people to reconfigure their physical space to meet new functional requirements, including working and learning at home, creating at-home gyms, or finding new ways to relax and enjoy themselves.

The survey found that 3 out of 5 respondents said that since their leisure and work environments have become one, it has become harder to carve out personal space to relax and find joy at home. Of those, 63% purchased smart home devices, 82% adapted a room for working from home during COVID, and 79% reconfigured at least one room.

“Smart living has always been about reimagining and optimizing physical space to solve problems and adapt to new realities through the use of technology, and we’ve seen this adoption accelerate in 2020,” said Daniel Desjarlais, Global Product Marketing Manager, Xiaomi. “Connected homes, automated systems, and new technology are helping people create ecosystems within their homes to solve new challenges presented by increased time at home, whether it’s adapting or creating new uses for old spaces, such as office space or classrooms, or just creating a more streamlined home that is easier to manage and control.”

Key survey findings include:

  • People had to adapt existing spaces to serve new purposes, particularly younger generations: Makeshift spacing arrangements were widespread across all age groups, with nearly two-thirds (66%) of all respondents saying that they had to use makeshift spacing arrangements in response to staying home more during the pandemic. This was particularly pronounced among Gen Z and Millennials — 91% of Gen Z consumers and 80% of Millennials indicated this was something they were forced to do. 
  • Smart home device purchases were on solution: On average, consumers bought two new smart devices since March in response to being home more during the pandemic, with Gen Z consumers buying an average of three. Smart devices can help to streamline a space and provide solutions for problems generated by more time at home, such as the need to carve out specific work or study space. Regardless of devices purchased, there is an overwhelming consensus among consumers (82%) that there are significant advantages to a home with smart devices.
  • For many, these makeshift solutions may end up being permanent. 60% of consumers say they plan to continue using their home for activities typically performed elsewhere, even after a COVID-19 vaccine is widely available. If stay-at-home orders go into effect again in 2021, nearly 2 in 5 (39%) of consumers have reported that they want to upgrade their devices and 41% will adapt a room. Moving into 2021, the adoption and integration of smart home technology will be a prevailing trend in home improvement as consumers look to smart devices as part of their long-term solutions.

Increased time at home during COVID-19 drove significant changes and desires for how people lived in, interacted with, and designed their homes, and smart home ecosystems provided a solution for the unprecedented changes of 2020. Smart devices can inspire consumers to see new uses for their space: such as creating at-home movie theaters with smart projectors, access to a plethora of streamed content, smart speakers, and more; or, creating a specified workspace with increased connectivity, automated lighting, and upgrading existing tech to smart solutions. Smart ecosystems also help consumers automate daily tasks, improving productivity, efficiency, and the home overall; such as automated cleaning schedules with air purifiers, smart appliances, or robot vacuums. Smart home devices can have a lasting impact on how we interact with the space around us, beyond 2020 and 2021, providing upgrades and impetus for long-term benefits. 

Xiaomi’s unique business model prioritizes innovation and has helped the company lead the industry with the most diverse smart device product portfolio whose products work together seamlessly in a connected ecosystem with smartphones at the center. As of September 30, 2020, the number of users with five or more devices connected to Xiaomi’s AIoT platform reached 5.6 million. Much of Xiaomi’s growth is coming from overseas markets, including expansion into Western markets. The newest product to be readily available for U.S. consumers is Mi Air Purifier 3H, which will go on sale starting January 14, 2021, manufacturer suggested retail price of $249.99.

Life in 4K: How Xiaomi is Redefining the 4K Viewing Experience

Xiaomi develops a true game-changer for the 4K laser projector industry

Laser projectors have become a popular alternative to traditional televisions for their ease of use, long-lasting light source, and the cinema experiences they enable. Despite the popularity of projectors, few consumers are able to obtain these high-end products due to their excessive price tags, but Xiaomi is out to change that.

Xiaomi’s brand philosophy is deep rooted in the belief that high-end products should be accessible to all consumers, which is why the company is committed to relentlessly pursuing the development of quality products at honest prices. Xiaomi’s Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” keeps to this promise with its affordable pricing and premium level specs, including its multi-port connections, premium audio, and Advanced Laser Phosphor Display 3.0 (ALPD 3.0).

To learn more about the latest category trends and product innovations, we sat down with experts from Xiaomi and Formovie – the ecosystem company behind Mi 4K Laser Projector 150”.

Reinventing Content Consumption with Cinema-Grade Technology

Xiaomi and its partners are committed to making advanced technology accessible to everyone. With this philosophy in mind, the team developed Mi 4K Laser Projector 150”: a premium product designed for today’s movie watchers consuming entertainment experiences at home more than ever before – not just due to the global pandemic, but because we are living in a golden age of quality content.

“Major players in the projector sector are releasing high-end laser projector products, but most are priced over $6,000, well out of reach for most consumers who want a high-quality product at a reasonable price,” said YongSai Lai, CEO at Formovie.

“The projector’s ALPD 3.0 technology has achieved breakthroughs on color accuracy and color spectrum – and its unique color wheel technology ingeniously solves the issue of thermal quenching in conversion phosphors,” said Xiliang Wu, vice president of Formovie. Meanwhile, Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” leverages a high-density laser that enables high-conversion efficiency for a more stable and reliable viewing experience. 

This ALPD 3.0 technology, self-developed by Appotronics – parent company of Formovie, has been widely applied to digital cinemas and other theaters in China. Its unparalleled color accuracy and advanced color spectrum bring a true cinema-grade experience to consumers, all from the comfort of their own home.

Outside of this revolutionary ALPD 3.0 technology, Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” boasts other premium features such as its compact, and easy-to-install design, Android TV 9.0 system with built-in Google Assistant*, and 30W dual full-frequency + dual high-frequency speaker system with Dolby and DTS-HD decoding support. 

An Accessible Home Theater Experience Without Compromise

When developing Mi 4K Laser Projector 150”, product experts and engineers from Xiaomi and Formovie set out to develop a product that was a true industry disruptor, pushing the boundaries of design and addressing many shortcomings of current projectors in the market. 

“We’ve found that many projectors in the market either use unverified Android builds or don’t come with a smart system and that can really impair user experience,” continued YongSai Lai. Without a built-in smart system, users have to seek out alternative solutions to access smart features on their projector, and in an age where consumers are used to having content right at their fingertips, access to smart features such as Google or YouTube are key to the success of the product. So Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” set out to change the game. 

“Mi 4K Laser Projector 150’’ addresses many shortcomings of home theater systems,” said GuoFang Liu, product manager at Xiaomi. “We specifically designed the heat dissipation system to make it more efficient, and designed the sound bar to achieve a best-in-class audio experience.” In fact, the sound quality on Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” is so outstanding that it can even be used as a standalone speaker for music, podcasts, or other audio-driven content.

A Bright Future Ahead

By scaling the 4K laser projector sector and offering devices such as Mi 4K Laser Projector 150” at an accessible price point, Xiaomi is pioneering the category’s future. And they’re only just getting started. 

“We will continue to explore more projector form factors such as portable projectors with a battery, micro projectors with high brightness, ultra-short throw ratio projectors with higher color gamut, and continue to explore touch, interactive, 3D and other technologies in greater depth,” said GuoFang Liu.

Xiaomi Introduces groundbreaking UWB Technology

Next level IoT connectivity with “Point to connect”

October 12th 2020, Beijing – Ever since Xiaomi entered the smart home industry, we have been contemplating one question – what would the future Internet of Things hold? In our imagination, every smart home device in the future should be able to perceive, understand, and react to users’ wishes.

Today, we have made another step ahead towards the future by introducing the ground-breaking ultra-wideband (UWB) technology. With this technology, your smartphone will be able to perceive signals from your smart devices in its surroundings and control smart devices when simply pointed towards them.

To achieve this, we customized the Mi 10 series and some smart home devices by including a built-in UWB chipset and antennas while using the specialized antenna layout and algorithms developed by Xiaomi. Let’s take a look at the video below: 

Device detection with centimeter-grade precision 

UWB, which stands for ultra-wideband, is the new generation of connection technology with ultra-precise positioning. A smartphone supporting Xiaomi’s UWB technology can locate smart devices with centimeter-grade precision. It senses spatial positioning just like the human eye and can pinpoint the location of any smart device with the angle measurement accuracy reaching ±3°, similar to an indoor GPS.

Smartphones and smart devices need embedded UWB chips and array antennas in order to achieve this. Unlike existing narrowband communication systems, Xiaomi’s UWB boasts a 500Mhz ultra-wide bandwidth to transmit information and improve positioning accuracy, a technology that is used in radars.

In addition, Xiaomi UWB technology demonstrates excellent security performance thanks to its ultra-wideband and narrow pulse characteristics, making its signals extremely difficult to intercept in space. At the same time, it is equipped with Xiaomi Distance Algorithm for added accuracy. These features also allow for imaginative practical applications. In the future, Xiaomi UWB Technology will complement Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to meet the wireless connectivity needs of users under different scenarios.

Revolutionary “Point to connect” interaction

We have so far embedded our unique UWB technology into Xiaomi Mi 10 Series and certain smart home appliances, pioneering the revolutionary “Point to connect” interaction format. Once you point your smartphone towards any smart device, you can immediately control it, as they will connect automatically.

When your smartphone is pointed towards the fan, the control panel for it automatically pops up on your phone.

One-tap control: Once you point your phone towards the smart device, the control panel pops up automatically. Whether you need to switch on the TV,  turn on the light, play a song or read its lyrics, everything is just one tap away.

One-tap casting: Point your phone towards the device to remote control it and seamlessly cast your screen onto smart devices including Mi TV, Xiaomi AI Touch Screen Speaker, Mi Notebook among others. 

“Point to connect” is just a tiny portion of what Xiaomi’s UWB technology offers.

In the near future, we may even be able to get rid of the “tap” for completely hands-free interaction. For instance, when you get close to the car door, your phone in your pocket will sense that and automatically unlock your car. Your phone can also help you pay on the subway or a bus, all while not leaving your pocket. These scenarios could easily become the reality with wider popularization of  Xiaomi’s UWB technology.

High refresh rate done better with 7-stage AdaptiveSync technology

Smooth viewing experience is largely achieved thanks to the smartphone’s display refresh rate – the higher, the smoother. Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T feature a 144Hz ultra-high refresh rate display paired with an industry-first 7-stage AdaptiveSync technology. This proprietary technology enables 7 stages of refresh rate adjustment, from 30Hz to 144Hz. The display is able to adjust its refresh rate depending on content being viewed for buttery smooth graphics, while ensuring prolonged battery life.

Buttery smooth graphics with 7-stage refresh rate adjustment

Graphic lags and screen jittering are especially noticeable when the display’s refresh rate (Hz) does not match its contents’ frame rate (fps). For example, when a video is at 25fps, while the display operates at 60Hz, the two are mismatched and will cause the screen to jitter.

The reason for the jitter is that a 25fps TV show runs at 25 frames per second, while a fixed 60Hz screen shows 60 frames per second. As a result, there is a mismatch between the display terminal and the content source, which results in the screen being forced to display the same frame several times before moving to the next one, causing a lag between the video and the screen.

So when a 60Hz screen plays a 25fps video, there will be a backlog in the amount of time it takes the screen to display the first frame and all the subsequent frames. It would take 2/60 seconds to display one frame, 3/60 seconds to display the next frame, etc., which will cause screen jitter.

To avoid screen jitter, it is best to set the screen refresh rate to be the same as, or a multiple of the content frame rate. Put simply, a 24fps video can be displayed at a 48Hz refresh rate, and a 25fps video displayed at a 50Hz refresh rate. Although each frame is shown repeatedly, it is shown for the same amount of time, ensuring smooth viewing.

Xiaomi’s self-developed AdaptiveSync technology offers a total of 7 stages (30/48/50/60/90/120/144Hz) of refresh rate adaptation, fully covering the frame rates of various content types, and achieving accurate frame-to-frame matching, thus eliminating screen lags and display jittering.

Improved battery performance, automatic adjustment to any content 

With a higher refresh rate, the display driver IC consumes more current. Moreover, a higher refresh rate also causes additional strain on CPU, GPU, memory and other internals, which increases the overall power consumption.

Typically, high refresh rate phones can only switch between 60Hz and the highest refresh rate available on them. This causes a common drawback in high refresh rate phones – shortened battery life. 

Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T’s AdaptiveSync is the industry’s latest solution to this issue – 7 stages of refresh rate adjustment, accurately matching various use scenarios to avoid unnecessary power consumption. For active usage scenarios such as scrolling through social media feeds, the refresh rate will switch to 144Hz to ensure a smooth viewing experience, when interaction with the screen occurs less frequently, the rate instantly drops to 50Hz to reduce power consumption.

Equipped with our 7-stage AdaptiveSync technology and a 5000mAh battery, Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T can last 1.3 days* under heavy usage, and two whole days* under light usage. It outperforms most other 5G flagship smartphones.

In addition to the top-of-the-line 144Hz variable-speed high refresh rate, Mi 10T Pro and Mi 10T are equipped with 7-stage AdaptiveSync technology. It intelligently synchronizes screen refresh rate with content frame rate to achieve the best display and power performance. Mi 10T display is outstanding in terms of color accuracy, color difference and pixel density.
