Xiaomi have released a Special version of their router series named the “Router 2048” after the 2TB of on board storage it holds.
The new Xiaomi Router 2048 has a few new features over their previous black model. Physically it is shorter than the original and it now has 2 large antennas held high to increase the range.
Internally there are changes too. The new router now gets double the storage of the original making it a whopping 2TB of space! I currently have the 1TB version and believe it or not it can get full quite quickly if you are using it as a ‘Time Machine’ storage location for backing up your computers.

Additional supporters will have to pay the full 999 Yuan price but will also receive a few extras (Ethernet cable, HIFI amp, Redmi Note 2 friend code) and can expect to receive their 2TB of wireless storage in October.
