Xiaomi has a couple of new products at Walmart and unveiled today's summary at an event in New York City. The first is a 150-inch projector that costs $ 1,999.99 at Walmart, doubles as a TV with Android TV. It is strangely too expensive for what it is, but it also marks one of the rare expansions of Xiaomi in the US offerings.
There are a couple of things to analyze here, namely that the projector is strangely expensive for a 1920 x 1080p screen. Xiaomi says he has no concrete plans to bring a 4K version to the US. UU., And that this is the same model that is sold in China. You could have found 1080p projectors cheaper in 2016.
Still, the projector has a number of positive aspects that include an ultra-short shot, so it can be placed 20 inches from the wall and still show a bright and colorful image, in contrast to other projectors that may need to be placed on the part. back of a room and show a more discolored image. There is also a detector on the top of the projector, so if you get too close to the laser, the projector will turn off its light automatically to avoid damaging your eyes. The device also comes with a corresponding remote control with which you can invoke Google Assistant.
There are three HDMI 2.0 ports, two USB ports and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility. It also has four speakers that support Dolby audio. The sound coming from the My Laser projector is relatively decent, with a minimum of bass. It's enough to enjoy your average pop song, but it's probably not great for listening to finely tuned orchestral music or an intensive bass dubstep.
Xiaomi also launched a My LED desk lamp for $ 39.99, a Yeelight LED bulb for $ 19.99 and a Mi head lamp for $ 44.99. Most of these are smart intelligent devices that explain themselves, where you can adjust the brightness and freshness of the light through the corresponding My Home application. All of them come in a very generic white design.
There is also a smart outlet for $ 14.99 that allows you to control the energy flow of common appliances through the My Home application, thus turning a normal appliance like a coffee machine into something that can be turned on and off remotely. In addition, Xiaomi made a second-generation version of its Mi Box, called Mi Box S, which runs on Android TV 8.1 and costs $ 59.99. All products are compatible with Google Assistant.
All products are now available in the United States through Walmart. It is not the first time that Xiaomi has partnered with Walmart to sell products in the United States, although the company is certainly diversifying its offerings over time. We asked Xiaomi if she plans to offer offers for Black Friday on these products and we will update this article with more details.
