Xiaomi might have been known primarily as a smartphone vendor at the start, but over time the company has branched out to other tech endeavors, such as launching wearables, battery packs, drones, and now if the rumors are to be believed, Xiaomi could be getting into transportation next with a smart bike.
The company has released a couple of teasers (see above) which seems to hint at bicycle parts. For example the image to the left clearly shows part of a bike’s tires, and the image to the right looks like the handlebars of the bike. Now it is unclear if Xiaomi will launch a full bike, or if they are launching products made for bikes, but either way it is an exciting development.
The company has an event planned for this coming Thursday which is the 23rd of June. Given the invitation is in Chinese, it looks like the event will be held in China which means that it will probably still be the 22nd of June in the US when the announcement is made (or the 23rd, depending on where you stay).
It’s hard to tell what kind of features it will have, but as the teasers hint, it will be able to track the distance you’ve cycled, speed, and so on. We wouldn’t be surprised if maybe it would even tie-in with the Mi Band 2 to track your heart rate. In any case check back with us tomorrow for the details.
