Xiaomi already announced it’s making its first appearance at CES next year, but the announcement didn’t end there. The phone manufacturer also added that they plan to launch a new product at the event. We don’t know what the product is but it seems there will be more than one device making an appearance at the event seeing as Xiaomi just announced that it will be launching the Yi Erida drone and Yi 4K+ action camera.

Apart from phones, Xiaomi makes a bunch of other stuffs, part of which includes smart bikes, a smart electric scooter, a drone and action cameras. Earlier this year, Xiaomi launched the Mi Drone, a first from the company. Less than a year later, the company will be adding the Yi Erida drone to the line-up.

The Yi Erida will be equipped with a Yi 4K action camera that can record for 2 hours on a single charge, and will also have a tri-rotor design. The drone will be able to fly at speeds of up to 75mph (120km/h) and have a flying time of 40 minutes. It will also be fitted with a gimbal system that lets you record steady videos while flying. The Yi Erida will have advanced radar and sensor systems, manual camera controls, and can be controlled via a mobile app which Xiaomi says will make remotes obsolete.

The Yi 4K+ action camera on the other hand is an upgrade to this year’s Yi 4K camera. The major change is the ability to record 4K videos at 60fps which no action camera in the market can boast  of right now. The increase in frame rate will let you record fast moving objects in a smoother way than what you can currently achieve with other action cameras.
