Chinese Tech Company, Xiaomi releasing it's First Drone soon


Xiaomi recently released a teaser of its first ever quadcopter this week with a picture of a
children's toy , but the Chinese tech company has now given us just a
little bit more to look at. As spotted by 9to5Google , a post on the
company's forum" MIUI Forums" shows what is likely Xiaomi's quadcopter, along
with an unveiling and live stream date of May 25th. "Something
wonderful and cool is flying to us very soon," says the moderator
who left the post.


We've boosted the exposure a little bit on the image above, and you
can see what look like propellors in the background. In fact, the
drone bears a remarkable similarity to Chinese manufacturer
Yuneec's Typhoon H , with what appears to be the same underslung
spherical camera. Could this be a collaboration between the two
companies? Xiaomi did announce an "ecosystem" of approved
partners earlier this year.

The poster does at least confirm that a drone is coming. We've
seen a number of leaks prior to this, including a Xiaomi app for 4K
video recording on a drone, and a patent showing a quadcopter
being controlled with a connected wrist band like the company's Mi
Band fitness tracker. A quick Google translate of the poster
suggests that the drone's unveiling will be live-streamed on
Xiaomi's website on May 25th. Look out for more info then.
