Xiaomi will be announcing a few gadgets today it seems, and besides the Redmi Note 3 the company has also announced the Mi Air Purifier 2.
The Mi Air Purifier 2 is a 699 Yuan or $110 device that will… purify the air you breathe. While it might not sound like much to readers outside China, air purifiers are quite a needed commodity in certain cities in China where pollution levels soar.

It is also quieter now; the device will produce 30db noise when put in night mode, and is overall 11% quieter than the first generation model according to Xiaomi. 388 cubic metres an hour can be cleaned by the Mi Air Purifier 2, up from 330 cubic metres/hour.
The standard and enhanced filters are priced at 149 Yuan ($23) and 169 Yuan ($26.5) respectively.
