Xiaomi has just launched the next-generation of their Mi Wi-Fi router yesterday and today we get to take a look at the new gadget.
The new Mi router features a new design that now looks closer to a conventional router than its predecessor. Its flat rectangular design is taller than other routers due to the fact that it also houses either a 1TB of 6TB hard drive inside of it.
The rest of its insides feature a Broadcom 4709C 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM. The new Mi router is actually the first device to feature the new processor from Broadcom. As for connectivity, it uses a 2v2 external PCB dual antenna array that features advanced signal tracking technology for better connectivity. The new Mi router is also equipped with four 6Gb Ethernet ports at the rear of the device.
Along with the Ethernet ports, the rear of the Mi router also plays host to the device’s antennas, power button, reset button, AC adapter plug, and a USB port. Turning the device around, the sides of the Mi router feature vents for cooling the device.
The packaging of the new Mi router is fairly simple and keeps with the theme of Mi’s other products. Opening up the box shows the router itself and its AC adapter along with the device’s manual. The new Mi router will be available soon for a 699 Yuan for the 1TB version and 2999 Yuan for the 6TB version.
