Xiaomi has been teasing the release of a very interesting product recently: an air pollution mask.
The product has been available in China for a while now but it seems like the company is slowly inching away from its main consumer market, for a change, suggesting that the product will also be launched in India.
The Mi Purely Air Mask has a PM 2.5 nano filter with an efficiency of up to 99% and a rechargeable battery. Alongside the filter, the mask also has an ultra-thin fan attached to it. Altogether, it weighs 50.5g and it’s made from high-fiber textile.
It has an on/off button with three level speed controls at the bottom and the battery can last from 3 to 4 hours on a single charge, but we can’t really tell you how fast a full charge takes.
The Mi Purely Air Mask costs 89 Yuan on the Chinese market (around $13, after conversion).
While this might be a strange product from a company that is predominantly known for its smartphones, Xiaomi is no stranger to other markets: it has also debuted some smart home and lifestyle products in 2018 and we’re pretty sure that the Chinese giant does not plan to stop expanding its line of products in 2019 either.
