‘Official GoPro killer’, i.e., Xiaomi-backed Yi launches in India


Xiaomi-backed Yi is the manufacturer behind a lot of popular products, including the Xiaomi Yi series of action cameras.

Yi have made available a total of 11 products, ranging in price from 3,490 INR ($54) to 19,990 INR ($310). All of these products can be found on the Amazon mini-site.

What a lot of adventure junkies in India will find interesting is that Yi have also made available their hot-selling 4K action cameras. It’s on sale for 17,990 INR, while the GoPro equivalent — the GoPro Hero 4 — goes for over 50,000 INR.
