New Xiaomi Mijia Robot Vacuum 3S unveiled
The Xiaomi Mijia Robot Vacuum 3S will shortly launch in China at Youpin. The flagship model will have up to 4,000 Pa suction power and dual high-speed rotating mop heads for deep stain removal. You can select from three intelligent water levels, and water locking material enhances the mop's cleaning power.
Onboard LDS navigation helps the Mijia Robot Vacuum 3S to plan an efficient route, and 3D stereo obstacle avoidance technology prevents the gadget from bumping into objects around your home. The robot has heavy-duty wheels to help it climb up to 2 cm (~0.70-in), which could help it move between rooms. Plus, its 97 mm (~3.82-in) tall body allows it clean underneath furniture pieces.
You can receive OTA updates via the Mijia app, where you can adjust the settings of the 3S robot vacuum; alternatively, you can control the gadget using Xiao AI voice commands. Support for the Mijia ecosystem enables you to trigger the robot vacuum using other smart home gadgets; for example, the robot vacuum could start cleaning when you lock your smart front door behind you. The Xiaomi Mijia Robot Vacuum 3S will cost 1,799 yuan (~US$261). It is unclear precisely when the device will launch and whether the company intends to sell it in other markets.
