    Not so sure a thermostat or smoke detector are fitting for China now. Air quality detector or purifier might make more sense. In fact air quality sensor in a phone could make sense but not sure if there are any small enough. Maybe a smart lock for bikes could make sense.
    There is no point to make the same products as US companies make. A developing nation has different needs and people are less likely to spend on pointless things.
    TBH they need to update the Redmi and Note already if they want their explosive growth not to lose momentum and a cheaper tablet wouldn’t hurt either. Their product line is not as interesting and exciting as it could and should be.
