Xiaomi has announced two new curved gaming monitors. Available in 29-inch and 34-inch screen sizes, both have a curvature of 1500R and support picture in picture. The larger of the two is a 1440p and 100 Hz panel. Xiaomi has announced a new electric standing desk for gamers, too.
Alex Alderson,

Xiaomi has brought three new gaming products to its Youpin eCommerce platform. Seemingly only available in China, for the time being. We imagine that third-party retailers like AliExpress and Gearbest will bring them to more markets, though.

Two of the products are HKC curved monitors. While the two devices may look similar, one has a 29-inch panel and the other a 34-inch one. Called the HKC C299Q and HKC C349U respectively, both have 21:9 aspect ratios and a curvature of 1500R. Additionally, both are VA panels with 4 ms response times. Xiaomi has include DisplayPort, HDMI and VGA connections on both monitors too.

However, the HKC C299Q supports up to 2,560 x 1,080 at 75 Hz, while the HKC C349U can reach 3,440 x 1,440 at 100 Hz. Also, the HKC C299Q currently costs CNY 1,099 (~US$157), whereas the HKC C349U retails for CNY 1,799 (~US$258) at the time of writing.

Xiaomi has unveiled the Loctek Electric Standing Desk for gamers, too. Priced at CNY 1,899 (~US$272), the desk is made from carbon fibre and is available in two patterns. According to Xiaomi, the desk supports a maximum weight of 70 kg and has a range of 71 to 121 cm. The company has included a control panel on the left-hand side, which displays the current height to which the desk has been set. There are three presets too.
