There has been a lot of talk over the possibility of a Xiaomi drone, now a teaser posted moments ago seems to finally officially confirm the device.
The drone market has quite literally taken off over the past year. Every sort of drone from basic ‘toys’ to professional models used in movie shoots have been taking to the skies in swarms.
China has been a big part of the growing popularity in the drone market with many models coming from the country including prosumer level DJI units, and soon there will be another.
It looks as though Xiaomi have been working on their drone for a long time now, with patents appearing in China for a drone that can be controlled via a wearable and simply gestures.
To further confirm a Xiaomi drone, a Xiaomi drone app was briefly launched earlier this week showing specs that include up to 4K video recording. This one detail not only confirmed the Xiaomi drone will come with a built-in camera (like DJI drones) but also be a top-end device rather than a budget model.
But the icing on the cake for drone fans is this first official teaser today, which hints at a Mi UAV. Generally Xiaomi tend to only start teasers slightly earlier than than the final launch date so expect the Xiaomi drone (and Mi Band 2) to arrive before the end of May.
