In line with its mis­sion ‘In­no­va­tion for Ev­ery­one’, the price has been kept af­ford­able while keep­ing the prod­uct de­sign pre­mium, to beneit more peo­ple with the lat­est ad­vance­ment in smart­phone tech­nol­ogy.

“The prod­uct is be­ing used in more than 70 coun­tries, where In­dia is the big­gest mar­ket for Xiaomi.

If you com­pare other com­peti­tors with Xiaomi, I can as­sure you that Xiaomi is the best in tech­nol­ogy as well as the fact that it reaches con­sumers at a very af­ford­able price.”

POCOPHONE F1 is the ul­ti­mate de­vice for power users, who can en­joy gam­ing at high frame rates and use in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tions with­out wor­ry­ing about slow­downs re­sult­ing from over­heat­ing. It fea­tures a 4000mAh bat­tery that can sus­tain 8 hours of non-stop gam­ing. POCOPHONE F1 fea­tures the lag­ship Qual­comm Snap­dragon 845 plat­form, the in­dus­try-lead­ing Liq­uidCool Tech­nol­ogy cool­ing sys­tem, up to 6GB RAM and 128GB stor­age. Its tech­nol­ogy en­ables it to de­liver sus­tained peak per­for­mance for ex­tended pe­riod. It comes with AI dual cam­era and 20MP front cam­era that churns out gor­geous im­ages.

Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite are the

best An­droid One phones ca­pa­ble of cre­at­ing ‘Pic­ture Per­fect Pho­tos’. Car­ry­ing on the An­droid One tra­di­tion, both Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite have pure An­droid 8.1 out of the box. It’s great for both gam­ing and daily us­age. Both of­fer the best An­droid ex­pe­ri­ence with the lat­est Google soft­ware in­no­va­tions such as smarter bat­ter­ies that last longer by ad­just­ing to user habits. Sup­ported by Google As­sis­tant and Google Lens, the sys­tem makes it easy for users to ind an­swers and get things done on-the-go. Both phones can up­date to An­droid P in the fu­ture.

The Mi A2 is a pho­tog­ra­phy pow­er­house by sport­ing a 12MP + 20MP rear AI dual cam­era and a 20MP front cam­era. It is driven by Qual­comm® Snap­dragon 660 SoC with the pow­er­ful Qual­comm Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence Engine (AIE). The 20MP front sen­sor fea­tures Su­per Pixel tech­nol­ogy that greatly im­proves the sen­sor ’s light sen­si­tiv­ity, en­abling users to cap­ture clearer and brighter im­ages, as well as bet­ter videos,

in low-light con­di­tions. The front sen­sor also of­fers handy ef­fects such as AI Por­trait, AI Beau­tify 4.0 and HDR, as well as a 4500K front Selie-light, al­low­ing users to take bet­ter selies than ever be­fore. More im­por­tantly, Mi A2 re­ceives Project Tre­ble sup­port from Google, mean­ing the phone can have faster and eas­ier sys­tem up­dates than other An­droid de­vices. Mi A2 has two ver­sions: 4GB+64GB for Dhs919 and 6GB+128GB for Dhs1079.

The slightly smaller Mi A2 Lite is the irst An­droid One de­vice to fea­ture a unique 19:9 dis­play. It of­fers great value too, pack­ag­ing a 12MP + 5MP rear AI dual cam­era and a 4,000mAh large bat­tery that will eas­ily last for 7.5 hour of con­tin­u­ous gam­ing and 16.5 hours of non-stop video stream­ing. It has a 5MP front cam­era that also sup­ports AI Por­trait Mode, giv­ing you that bokeh ef­fect even with­out a sec­ond lens. Both the front and back cam­eras sup­port AI Beau­tify and HDR.

Mi A2 Lite comes in two

ver­sions: 3GB+32GB for Dhs619 and 4GB+64GB for Dhs749.

Mi Band 3, is the lat­est it­er­a­tion of its wildly pop­u­lar wear­able, glob­ally. It is packed with ex­cit­ing fea­tures, in­clud­ing a large OLED touch­screen dis­play, im­proved alerts and 50m wa­ter re­sis­tance. For the irst time in the Mi Band se­ries, Mi Band 3 users will be able to swim with it, thanks to the 5 ATM wa­ter re­sis­tance. With a 0.78-inch OLED dis­play, Mi Band 3 can now dis­play con­tent of mes­sages, in ad­di­tion to ba­sic data such as time, date and steps taken. It fea­tures a sleek, min­i­mal­ist uni­body de­sign, it­ting per­fectly into users’ life­styles.

Mi Band 3 is priced at Dhs129. Mi Laser Pro­jec­tor 150” comes with a min­i­mal­is­tic de­sign that blends ef­fort­lessly into any decor and homes.
