In the past two years, Xiaomi has begun to get involved in the monitors market. The prices of the products it has launched range from 700 yuan to 2500 yuan ($108 – $386), covering all segments from entry-level to high-end.

However, now Redmi seems started working on some slightly high-end monitors. At present, Redmi has put on a 27-inch 2K monitor in JD’s self-operated flagship store. The product title also points out that the product sports an IPS screen with a three-micro-edge design. The pre-sale price is 1399 yuan (216).
