Xiaomi India has teased the release of a new electric screwdriver in the market. It could likely be the successor to Xiaomi's Mijia Wiha screwdriver set, which was released over two years ago. Unfortunately, there is no release date mentioned anywhere, but we should know more about it in the coming days.

Xiaomi has come a long way from its origins as a budget smartphone brand. The company now sells a host of peripherals such as TVs, air purifiers, electric scooters, and even beard trimmers. Most of those products remained exclusive to the Chinese market, though. Only recently have they began to make their way to other regions.

Xiaomi India has now teased its latest offering for the Indian market: an electric screwdriver set. The official Xiaomi Twitter handle posted an eight-second clip of what appears to be an electric screwdriver captioned, "Something coming up for the ones who like to step up and fix things." A graphic towards the end showcases two different types of screws, further accentuating the screwdriver speculation.

Unfortunately, there isn't a release date mentioned, but we should know more about it in the coming days. We're possibly looking at an improved version of Xiaomi's Mijia Wiha 24-in-1 screwdriver set. Perhaps additional bits are in order, along with improved motor functions. Are we looking at the world's first IoT-enabled screwdriver? Probably not, but if there's one company that can pull something like that off, its Xiaomi.
