Xiaomi launching Mi Air Purifier 2 in India on Sep. 21


n an attempt to increase its footprint in the Indian market, the Chinese smartphone and tech giant Xiaomi is ready to launch its Mi Air Purifier 2 in India. Xiaomi has sent out invitations for the launch of its first Mi Ecosystem product on September 21 at an event in New Delhi.

Xiaomi has been actively priming in India with its Mi Ecosystem. The company last month laid out its plans to introduce Xiaomi's Mi Air Purifier 2 in India, without revealing exact dates and details about the launch. The Mi Air Purifier 2, the successor to Mi Air Purifier, will be the first product in its Mi Ecosystem to be launched in India.

The first Mi Ecosystem product to launch in India will be the Mi Air Purifier 2, which offers a Clean Air Delivery Rate (CADR) of 388 cubic meters an hour. The device comes with a pre-filter, a HEPA filter, and an activated carbon filter, and makes just 30db of noise when in quiet mode. The air purifier is sold in China for ¥699 ($104), and it is likely the device will cost under ₹10,000 in India.

With the rise in pollution levels — particularly in North India — companies like Philips are seeing an uptick in sales of air purifiers. With its disruptive pricing, Xiaomi has a chance to grab an early foothold in the segment. Unlike standard air purifiers, you'll be able to control the Mi Air Purifier 2 remotely through the Mi Home app.
