Xiaomi is said to be on the point of releasing a new product for 2019. This product is to be called the Star Trang telescope, and will be available for sale on April 9. It is set to cost about US$89, and is one of many gadgets the OEM may release for its "Fan Day" event in China.

Xiaomi is mostly known worldwide for its Android phones, and maybe some accessories that could be sold alongside them. However, the OEM also makes and markets a range of other electronics and gadgets, which are mostly sold in Asian markets. They range from electric razors to domestic humidifiers. Now, a new product will apparently join that line-up: the Star Trang miniature telescope.

Xiaomi is set to release this new offering during its Fan Day festival in China. It, along with some other new releases such as walkie-talkies and hand-held vacuums, will be shown off to aficionados of the brand. These individuals may not find it much of a surprise, as Xiaomi does in fact already stock one other kind of telescope.

With a 90mm lens that can zoom at either 30X or 100X, the 'Beebest' is a more astronomical-grade model. The new Star Trang, on the other hand, is aimed more at the amateur-level consumer: it has lenses with either 21.7X or 50X zoom.

On the other hand, this telescope is said to come with an aluminium tripod, protective accessories and a custom backpack in which to transport it. It will reportedly be sold at 599 yuan (or about US$89) on its release date of April 9, 2019.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
