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.

India, 20 September 2020: Mi India, the number one smartphone and smart TV brand, today announced the launch of ‘Mi Store on Wheels’ (MSoW), an innovative concept that brings exclusive retail experience to the heart of Bharat, closer to the remotest parts of the country. A radical new concept, Mi Store on wheels will operate out of a Van and travel across towns covering a set journey and ensure presence in all the popular weekly haats and markets along the way. The initiative will be the first pilot in Chhattisgarh, covering places right from Basna to Sankara and Bhawarpur to Pithora.

Commenting on the initiative, Muralikrishnan B, COO, Mi India, said, “With Mi Store on Wheels, our aim is to increase our availability in the far corners of our nation and bring the best in class Mi Store showroom experience in areas that have limited access. We are proud to pilot this novel initiative with hopes of bringing quality shopping experience to all consumers. We are hopeful and   confident that MSoW will be a disruptor in changing the dynamics of the retail business in our rural markets. Following all the necessary hygiene and safety practises, while regulating crowds and maintaining social distance, MSoW outlets will be fully safe for consumers to visit. With this new initiative and having the largest exclusive single brand retail network, we are determined to reach the remotest of areas in the country and address the needs of customers, bringing the Mi Store experience to their neighbourhood”

The company is working towards building future-ready experience and has introduced some special initiatives to ensure ease of purchase, keeping partners and customers safe, and fostering business continuity, further enabling its users and retail partners to connect in the post-COVID world.

During the recent pandemic-led lockdown, Mi India launched its first omni-channel solution – Mi Commerce as a special initiative, with the intent to blur online and offline boundaries. Taking another step in this direction, the brand is enabling ease & convenience to the customers by bringing these stores closer to the user’s neighbourhood. These physical stores will allow Mi Fans and consumers to experience and purchase some of the recently introduced offerings under the Redmi and Mi portfolio.

MSoW will have all the newly launched 9 series models from Redmi, the Redmi 9, Redmi 9 Prime, Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9 Pro, Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, and Redmi 9A.

In addition to this, to add to the customer delight,  the moving store will also gather feedback from the customer on the products that customers want for the next time the MSoW arrives in their city.

The Mi Store on Wheels will ensure higher footfalls of customers from different clusters of markets. The brand has always been known for its innovative initiative and MSoW is another step in that direction by the company.

Xiaomi Announces Official Release of Android™11 for Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro

Beijing, CHINA, September 9, 2020 – Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro will be the first batch of Xiaomi devices to receive the Android™ 11 update. The latest iteration of Android™  comes with a slew of considerable improvements. Combined with a series of smart features that come with MIUI 12, this update is fully optimized for effortless conversation management and seamless smart device control. 

With system-level technical innovations, MIUI 12 boasts an ultra-smooth user interface based on immersive animations and visualizations that translate into a lifelike user experience where every detail feels almost palpable. Other major updates introduced by Android 11 include:

Conversations: 

Android 11 enables users to manage their conversations across multiple messaging apps at one place in the notification shade. New functions allow users to respond to messages right from the drop down notifications section. The OS update also allows users to organize conversations according to their priority. Prior conversations can be shown on the lock screen and can “break through” the Do Not Disturb setting.

Bubbles: 

Bubbles in Android 11 will float on top of other apps and be accessible for users in different situations. Bubbles can be expanded to reveal full app functions and can be collapsed when not used. It is a useful tool that allows users to better multitask and never miss important messages. 

Device Controls:

The phone turns into a “digital wallet and keys” offering a one touch path to controlling users’ connected smart devices without the need to open additional apps. With faster and easier access to their smart devices, users can enjoy smoother and more elegant media switching as well as experience wireless Android Auto functions on their phones. To use Device Controls, visit “Settings” and then go to “Display”, tap on “Control center & Notification shade” and enable “Use new Control center”. Users can add apps to the “Smart Home” section in the Control center and manage connected devices directly.

Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro bring photography and videography to the forefront, reinforcing it with an impressive hardware setup and software features. Backed by 8K-capable videography, 108MP photography, premium audio and a flagship 5G mobile platform, they are real all-rounders perfectly suited for modern urban elites and smartphone power users. 

Xiaomi closely follows Android’s major releases and updates its devices. Catering to users’ expectations, Android 11 is now made available on Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro Global ROMs for developers and users to have an early glimpse of its smart features.
