Xiaomi’s Redmi brand is teasing the launch of a new smartwatch tomorrow.The watch could be the Redmi Watch, which emerged online last month.
Xiaomi is gearing up to launch its first 5G Redmi Note phones tomorrow (November 26), expected to be called the Redmi Note 9 5G series in China. These phones might not be the only Redmi product on offer at the event though.
Redmi general manager Lu Weibing took to Weibo to tease the arrival of the smartwatch, noting that it’s lightweight and has a small, square screen. The executive also posted a teaser image, showing a wearable with a square housing along with Big Ben popping out of it. Check it out below.
It looks like this is the same Redmi or Mi Watch Lite smartwatch that swung by the FCC last month. The FCC filing showed a watch (model number RedmiWT02) with a square housing, 1.41-inch screen, and a 230mAh battery.
The filing also detailed a variety of other features to expect, such as GPS support, 5ATM water resistance, heart-rate monitoring, and several fitness modes. So you might want to keep an eye on the launch event tomorrow if you’re in the market for a cheap smartwatch.
