We have all heard that Xiaomi is preparing a UAV, and speculated about features it will have. Some photos of the novelty and even an app for it were leaked previously, but the most accurate picture of how this new UAV will look like we have obtained when 20 second long teaser video appeared. This short video shows some features of the this long-expected Xiaomi device.
The Mi Drone will get standard looking quad-copter design, a round camera module mounted below the main fuselage, as well as a pretty compact size. At least, it fits in a backpack.
The UAV will be able to capture 4K videos at 30FPS, 1080p at 100 FPS, 60 FPS or 30 FPS, moreover, it seems that the drone will be capable of flying according to GPS-coordinates set by you in the application.
Also there is expected an FPV feature — the vehicle can be piloted remotely from the first-person perspective via the onboard camera, fed wirelessly to the video monitor.
The most expected feature is the ability to control the movements of the drone by the Mi Band and simply gestures.
It is supposed that Xiaomi Mi Drone will have longer flight time than its main competitors.
Typically, such functions belong to the more expensive device segment, but we hope that Xiaomi, as always, will delight us with the price.
Xiaomi Mi Drone will be officially launched on May 25th, so stay tuned for updates!
