Xiaomi Watch Pro is reportedly in the works; Mi Watch price surfaces ahead of official launch


Xiaomi Watch aka Xiaomi Mi Watch is expected to debut in China later today. But alongside the standard square-shaped smartwatch, the Beijing-based company reportedly intends to launch its Watch Pro with a circular dial. Both smartwatch models are likely to carry similar internal components. Separately, the price of the Xiaomi Watch was spotted on the Taobao e-commerce portal ahead of its official launch. The online listing also suggested that the Xiaomi Watch will go on sale in the country from November 11.

The development around the Xiaomi Watch Pro has been leak by a Chinese tipster on Weibo. The tipster claims that the Xiaomi Watch Pro is in the works alongside the Xiaomi Watch with a circular dial. The launch date of the new smartwatch model has not been revealed. However, it is supposed to arrive in a few months.

As an upgrade from the original Xiaomi Watch, the Xiaomi Watch Pro would have additional RAM and storage capacity. It can also include eSIM and NFC support and run MIUI for Watch just like the standard model. Additionally, it could come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC.

The tipster claims the Xiaomi Watch, which is also rumored to be the Mi Watch, would debut with a price tag of CNY 1,299 (around Rs. 13,000). The Xiaomi Watch Pro is said to have a higher price tag, however.

According to Chinese news site ITHome, Taobao has listed the Xiaomi Mi Watch with a price of 1,499 CNY (around 17,100 Rs), while its official price is 1,699 CNY (around 18,100 Rs). The smartwatch is said to go on sale in the Chinese market from November 11. However, we were unable to separately verify the list online.
