Xiaomi has long hinted that the MIJIA ecosystem products are an important part of the company which is postured as an internet company. The MIJIA brand is home to smart home products and in recent times we saw a deviation from IoT gadgets like smart door lock, smart switch, smoke alarm etc, to big home/kitchen gadgets like the MIJIA washing machine, air-conditioners and even refrigerator. Xiaomi has now announced that it is set to unveil a new refrigerator.
The product was teased recently on Weibo and the teaser contains a render of the supposed product. The picture suggests the MIJIA refrigerator will come with either a two-door double cabin or two-door single cabin design. If it is a two-door fridge, then the size promises to be massive. Explicit details of the product weren’t revealed but it may equally have a display on the outside just like high-end fridges from LG and Samsung. Of course, the fridge may come with smart connectivity features as is common with Xiaomi products but we are not sure about that.
An air-cooled refrigeration system is typically located outdoors and is subject to its surrounding ambient temperatures but can be kept indoor. It is cooled by heat transfer into the air and so must be kept in well ventilated area.
This product is one of four major household appliances. The other three include the Smart TV, air-conditioner and washing machine. Xiaomi first released the Mi TV series in 2013 and presently, the brand is the no. 1 highest-selling TV in China. The MIJIA Air Conditioner is equally a top-selling product with up to 1 million units sold annually. The washing and drying machine released recently is still a hot-selling one.―Gizmochina
