It looks like Redmi is preparing to launch a brand new wearable. The folks over at GizmoChina spotted the Redmi Watch 2 listed on Chinese retailer, JD.com. As per the listing, the wearable is priced at CNY 399, which is roughly Rs 4,700 when directly converted. It is not yet known if or when the watch will be available in India.
The report notes that the new Redmi Watch 2 is tipped to feature a 1.6-inch AMOLED display. By comparison, the current generation of the Redmi Watch packs a slightly smaller 1.4-inch display with an LCD panel. The AMOLED display on the new watch should allow for features such as an always-on display while also improving battery life.
Other details aren’t yet confirmed, but we can speculate based on what the Redmi Watch GPS has to offer. The new phone comes with built-in GPS, so it should be safe to assume that the Redmi Watch 2 should also sport one. Further, the Redmi Watch GPS comes with 11 sports modes, so the upcoming device should be on par here or should offer even more activity tracking options. The watch is scheduled to launch in China on October 28.
Redmi is also preparing to launch the Redmi Note 11 series in China on October 28. Speaking of the phones, the company is expected to launch three new phones in the Redmi Note 11 series. These include the Redmi Note 11, Redmi Note 11 Pro and the Redmi Note 11 Pro+. The manufacturer recently confirmed on Weibo that the new series will see the introduction of 120W fast charging.
Currently, it is not yet known if or when Redmi will launch the Note 11 series or the Redmi Watch 2 in India. The Redmi Note 10 was launched in India in March this year, so one can expect a similar timeframe for the launch of the new phones.
