The Xiaomi Mijia Glasses Camera is now available to pre-order in China from sites including Xiaomi Mall and Youpin. Plus, the company announced an OTA update, launching on September 10. The new software will enable you to identify animals and plants with the gadget, and the company suggests a Dragon Ball-inspired feature is also on the way.

The Xiaomi Mijia Glasses Camera is now available to pre-order via Xiaomi Mall, Xiaomi Youpin, Tmall and JD.com. Customers in China can pay a 100 yuan (~US$14) deposit to secure the wearable at the discounted price of 2,599 yuan (~US$376); the gadget is expected to retail for 2,699 yuan (~US$391) after the pre-sale period ends on September 6.

Alongside the pre-order announcement, Xiaomi revealed that the first OTA update to the device would take place on September 10. The new software will include a tool that enables you to use the glasses to identify various animals and plants. The marketing images suggest that the device can tell you the name of the species and a few facts on the subject. Also coming to the wearable is a Combat Power Detector, which appears to be a gimmick nodding to the similarity between the Mijia Glasses Camera and the Scouter device from the Dragon Ball universe.

As we previously reported, the glasses have a periscope dual camera system, offering 1X to 15X hybrid zoom. The gadget allows you to capture videos and images hands-free or to get closer to the action at an event like a sports match. Another upcoming feature of the device is AI text translation between English and Chinese. The wearable weighs around 100 g (~3.5 oz), and a 1,020 mAh battery provides 3.3 hours of use or 100 minutes of continuous recording on a single charge. Plus, you can recharge the gadget to 80% in 30 minutes. It remains unclear whether or when Xiaomi could launch the Mijia Glasses Camera in other markets.
