XiaoMi Sports Action Camera


I just read that XiaoMi may be releasing a 4K, GoPro-style camera.

It is speculated to cost RMB 999 (USD 163) and apparently capable of recording 4K@30fps or 1080p@120fps, supporting MicroSD cards up to 128GB.

XiaoYi Sports Camera


I suspect one that was just released is not the same one that was rumored in Nov 2014. XiaoMi may be releasing a couple of sports action cameras.

By the way, "Xiao Yi" = 小蚁 = little ant.

I agree...
I just dont understand why they dont announce all at once...
Perhaps 4k/30fps/128GB SDCard camera is not ready and it will take some time before we can see it... and this 1080P/60fps/64GB SDCard camera is just to fulfill some expectations... dont you agree?
But they should remember that we are expecting 4K 30fps, not less...

Maybe they don't want upstage their XiaoYi camera? Release this low end camera first. Get people excited. Get people to buy them. Then release a better version! People will then buy the enhanced version.

Or maybe they could not get the 4K-capable chipset from Ambarrella? Ambarrella may have contractual agreement with GoPro to not sell their 4K-capable chipset to other companies? Let's give XiaoMi some time.
