The drone market, as the VR market, is slowly but steadily increasing and more and more companies are entering or planning to enter it. Lei Jun has already mentioned a Xiaomi drone in the news, but now the Official Xiaomi account on Weibo has begun warming up for the product to come, as the company posted a bamboo propeller to get all Xiaomi fans excited!
Before this, information had been leaked for the drone’s capabilities, claiming that it will be able to achieve 4K video recording and streaming. This means -if true- that the device will sport high-end hardware, aiming directly at the high-end market part. However, sources say that its price will be very competitive at about 3999 Yuan ($610) while the DJI Phantom 4 is selling for 8999 Yuan ($1,375). It seems that Xiaomi is once more sticking with the value-for-money strategy. What would you choose, the cost effective Xiaomi or the luxurious Phantom?
