Xiaomi’s Global VP Hugo Barra posted about the launch event on his Facebook and Twitter accounts with the description, “Something incredibly awesome from Xiaomi is flying your way on May 25!”
Xiaomi had also posted about the drone on its official Mi forum. The posts reads,Xiaomi also posted a teaser video about its upcoming drone on the Chinese streaming site Youku, which was spotted by Android Central. The video has since then made it to YouTube, and shows a white drone, which could be a quadcopter with a spherical camera attached to it. We’ll have to wait and see if this is a 4K capable camera as some of the more top-end drones are offering. Patent leaks have also claimed that Xiaomi is working on a drone that can be controlled via gestures thanks to a new Mi band.
Xiaomi’s Drone will launch on May 25 and will compete against players like DJI, etc. We’ll have to see how Xiaomi prices this one.
