The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is a rebadged Redmi K20 Pro for the European market

Xiaomi's recent top-tier handsets have offered flagship-level specs for considerably less than the likes of Samsung and Huawei, a tactic that looks set to continue with the Mi 9T Pro.

Xiaomi Mi Band 4 review: Cheap and decent activity tracking, but not for swimmers

In the world of activity trackers, nothing comes close to the Mi Band's value. Cheaper than any Garmin or Fitbit tracker, even the most basic vivofit4 and Inspire, but still packing enough functionality, it also benefits from Xiaomi's name recognition and is considered a serious choice, not a cheap knock-off no-name tracker.

The most recent Mi Band 4 pushes the value-for-money envelop even further thanks to a colored AMOLED screen, swim tracking, and music controls, which get added on top of the previous generation's all-day activity, sleep, and heart rate tracking. Overall, the package is very attractive, but cracks are inevitably hiding below the surface, especially if you like spending your time in a pool.

Xiaomi has generally been the poster child for the narrative that extols and marvels at the rise of China's young smartphone manufacturers globally. Like Huawei, Oppo, and Vivo, Xiaomi sells tens of millions of phones every year, and it does so at highly aggressive prices—often so low that they're a source of novelty in and of themselves for curious westerners. But the company's stock tells a very different story: of a Xiaomi that has failed to capitalize on its advantages, and is now worth less than a social media network best known for memes and the ramblings of one Very Angry President.

It looks like Xiaomi's next Redmi phone will have a 64MP camera

In April, Samsung announced its largest smartphone camera sensor, one that could take in up to 64 megapixels of information. The rumor mill was quick to point to a new Galaxy phone that would be the first to feature said sensor. But it seems that Xiaomi has shown up the crowd with a couple of samples from what is supposedly its first phone with a 64MP camera. And there's reason to believe that it will be fairly affordable, too.

Xiaomi's Android One-toting Mi A3 is official: 48MP camera and in-screen fingerprint scanner for €250

After recent leaks, we knew Xiaomi would soon be introducing its latest Android One phone, and now the Mi A3 has been officially unveiled. Its predecessors were pretty well received, so we have high hopes for this one. For just €250 it offers a 48MP sensor as part of a triple camera setup, an in-screen fingerprint scanner, and a 6-inch AMOLED display (Edit: Sadly it's only HD+, 720x1520 — no wonder they didn't emphasize that in the PR) with a waterdrop notch.
