Upcoming Xiaomi Drone Is Going To Be Extremely Affordable – Will Take The Battle Right To DJI
The Xiaomi drone is another product where the rising Chinese tech star wants to capitalize on. One of the biggest advantages that Xiaomi currently possesses is being able to sell premium products at extremely affordable prices.
The Xiaomi Drone Is Going To Cost Slightly Over $600 And Will Possess Recording Functions Of Premium Priced Aerial Machines
Drones that you see right now are being dominated by the Chinese giant DJI is about to get some serious competition in the form of the upcoming Xiaomi drone. According to The Next Rex, the price of the upcoming product is going to be around 3,999 Yuan, which if your calculation is correct, brings a total of $610. Just imagine a $610 drone that is competing against those that are retailing for upwards of $1,000. Naturally, if the drone ends up being sold in the United States, it is going to carry a larger price tag due to a variety of different costs added, but it is still going to be cheaper than drones being offered by DJI.
One of the perks of purchasing a drone from Xiaomi will be that the firm will not cheap out on providing the best recording functions to the user. The drone is expected to feature a camera with a slightly wide aperture (details unknown for the time being), but we do know that it will be able to record 4K footage at a steady 30FPS. With 4K footage becoming ever so popular, it is only natural that the camera ends up being a powerful one.
Being involved in action photography or videography means that you have to invest a lot of money in other accessories. Be it action cameras or drones, their biggest drawback is battery life. DJI conveniently allows users to purchase aftermarket batteries for increased battery life, but Xiaomi could immediately gain the upper hand here by bundling a fair share of accessories into the packaging of the drone. With these accessories, the average consumer will be able to save big, and fulfill their leisure of flying a very capable drone at a terrific price rage.
