Since the end of last year, Xiaomi 11 snatched Xiaolong 888, Xiaomi's pace has never stopped.
In more than a month, Xiaomi has demonstrated its futuristic space isolation charging technology to the outside world, released the four curved waterfall screen concept mobile phone, and redmi K40 has directly announced its price without a new one. Notebook products will also usher in a long lost upgrade.
However, it is worth mentioning that Lei Jun recently launched the "rice noodles New Year's Eve dinner" activity, in which Lei Jun revealed a lot of noteworthy information.
Mix 4 will be released in 2021, or in 10000 yuan version
Mix is of special significance to Xiaomi. Only it represents Xiaomi's spirit of exploration and is also a key product in the process of high-end development. Unfortunately, two years have passed since the release of the previous generation of mix. In the past two years, although Xiaomi's high-end product line has become more and more perfect, there is still a gap in its advanced "exploratory products". After all, it is difficult for "supreme commemorative version" to support the situation.
The direct reason why the new generation of mix is "dystocia" is that the previous generation of mix 3 has encountered a cold burst. Looking back at the three generations of mix products, the first generation successfully mass produced the "concept product". Although the second generation made some compromises, it made a breakthrough in the "unibody" ceramic technology. The third generation became mediocre and went downhill. Not only the hardware was mediocre, but the imposed sliding mechanical structure became a wrong decision.
Since then, it seems that mix is about to fall from the altar and become the second Xiaomi note. Fortunately, Xiaomi stopped losses in time. A few months after the release of mix 3, Xiaomi and redmi were independent, and the two brands entered the adjustment period of more than a year. The only gold lettered signboard of mix was temporarily "snowed up".
2021 is the beginning of a new decade for Xiaomi. After Xiaomi 11 made a good start, the return of mix is also on the agenda. A few days ago, in the live broadcast of Lei Jun's dinner, it was officially confirmed that Xiaomi mix 4 will be released this year. However, a few days earlier, Lei Jun asked the question on his microblog: if Xiaomi releases a 10000 yuan machine, will it buy it? It's not hard to guess that this 10000 yuan machine may be a high-level version of mix 4.
In recent years, Xiaomi has made great progress in various technical fields. From time to time, it will display some laboratory technologies, such as under screen camera, super fast charging, air separation charging, etc., but they have not been applied to products. Therefore, it is not difficult to guess that mix 4 is probably the best carrier of these technologies.
When will mix 4 appear? Personally, I think it will be at least until the second half of the year or even the end of the year. Xiaomi's products this year are very rich. After the Spring Festival, there are two types of Xiaomi 11 big cup and super large cup. In addition, there is a cost-effective flagship carrying Xiaolong 870, and mix 4, a high-end work with top technology, is the best choice in the second half of the year. At the same time, mix 4 is likely to become the first flagship of Xiaomi to enter the price of 10000 yuan, and once again shoulder the exploration mission of Xiaomi.
The return of Xiaomi tablet, the most important play is MIUI for pad
Xiaomi has a lot of products that "come out is the peak", of which the tablet is the most representative.
In the article before geek's choice, we specially discussed "is there any play on Xiaomi tablet? My personal answer to this topic is yes. Lei Jun has said more than once on various occasions that Xiaomi is the only mobile phone manufacturer that "survives after sales decline", so it is not difficult to copy the successful experience of turning over to the tablet.
Also in the live broadcast of Lei Jun's dinner, Xiaomi revealed that it would launch a tablet this year.
In the past year, the sales volume of tablet, notebook and other PC products rose against the market. If Xiaomi launched tablet one year ahead of time, it might be able to obtain good benefits in sales volume.
But just like mix, the lack of product power is also a problem faced by Xiaomi tablet, which starts from slogan From the first generation of "game artifact" to the fourth generation of "chasing drama artifact", Xiaomi has lowered the definition of its products time and again. As a result, the technology accumulation on the tablet is getting less and less, its competitiveness is totally inferior to that of its competitors, and the whole product line even almost disappears.
Fortunately, Xiaomi tablet 5 may turn this situation around. According to the official sources of Xiaomi, the tablet system is the focus of MIUI this year, and in terms of hardware, Xiaomi tablet 5 will also be equipped with a stylus. From this series of news, it is not difficult to speculate that the main highlight of Xiaomi tablet 5 will be office productivity, which is also in line with the needs of users in the past two years.
But for Xiaomi tablet, or any product of Xiaomi, it's not difficult to do well for a while, what's difficult is continuous investment and persistence. On the other hand, it's not a long-term solution to blindly develop cost-effective products. I'm looking forward to the launch of a "supreme commemorative version" tablet by Xiaomi. Nowadays, there are few Android Tablet choices. I hope Xiaomi tablet 5 with MIUI can bring good performance.
Do you have millet home in your hometown?
"Every county has its own millet home" is the goal put forward by Lu Weibing at the redmi note 9 press conference at the end of last year. In the last few days of Lei Jun's new year's Eve dinner, this goal has been reiterated, becoming one of the three major events Xiaomi will do in 2021, which also shows Xiaomi's determination to pay close attention to sales channels.
There are more than 1600 counties in China. There are great differences in economic conditions and geographical environment. You can imagine how difficult it is to open Xiaomi's home in every county, but Lu Weibing didn't brag.
So far, Jiangsu and Henan have achieved county-level full coverage, and other provinces are also in rapid coverage. Once this goal is achieved, more users will be able to access millet products and enjoy more perfect and standardized official services.
- THE END -
