Redmi smartwatch with circular display to launch today
Redmi's new smartwatch is expected to be a rebranded Mi Watch Lite that was recently spotted on certification sites.
Xiaomi will launch the new Redmi Note 9 series in China today. A new Redmi smartwatch is also planned to launch alongside the new Redmi Note 9 phones. The company has teased the Redmi smartwatch will feature a square dial.
Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing shared a teaser of the smartwatch confirming the launch will take place today. No other details of the Redmi watch were revealed except that it will have a square dial. There are speculations that this Redmi smartwatch could be a rebranded Mi Watch Lite which has also been spotted as an affordable version of Mi Watch.
Going by this assumption, we can expect the Redmi smartwatch to feature a 1.4-inch display. It will be water resistant up to 50 meters with swimming performance tracking as well as other sports and activities. The Redmi smartwatch will also have a built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, and a 240mAh battery.
While we will see a new smartwatch, the highlight of the event will be the new Redmi Note 9 smartphones. Xiaomi is expected to launch Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G and Redmi Note 9 5G today. Other than 5G, the new Redmi Note 9 phones are also expected to come with four rear cameras, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and punch-hole selfie camera.
Another smartphone is expected which could come with 4G. These would be upgraded models of the Redmi Note 9 series launched earlier this year. There's no word on whether Xiaomi will bring these phones to other markets.
