Smartphone maker Xiaomi has forayed in the nascent air-purifier segment in India. The company’s Mi Air Purifier 2 is the first smart home product from its Mi Ecosystem devices range that is being launched in the country.
Priced is at Rs. 9,999, the air purifier will be available on Mi.com from September 26 and later will be made available on Flipkart from October 2. Hugo Barra, Vice-President, Xiaomi, said: “Air pollution is becoming an alarming public health concern in India. We believe that we are able to play a role in increasing awareness about air pollution by including AQI (Air Quality Index) data into our MIUI Weather app, and by introducing Mi Air Purifier 2 to India.”
