In other news, Xiaomi is getting ready to release a new face mask in India. According to the company, this face mask will be official in India on October 13th. In March this year, Xiaomi Mobile Software Co., Ltd. got a patent for a new face mask. This mask comes with a three-dimensional frame shape that is compatible with the shape of the face. Furthermore, the frame of the mask uses an easily collapsible plastic. This is good for the face so that a hard force to the face will not cause injuries. According to Xiaomi, the users feels very comfortable while wearing the mask. The shape of the support frame can be changed by pressing the shaping part, so that the mask fits the face more closely, which effectively improves the air tightness of the mask.
