Xiaomi released a teaser about an upcoming water-related event on June 10 in China. The picture and its text mean water, but there is nothing beyond that.
Towards the end of last year, first reports surfaced online claiming that Xiaomi was working on a smart water purifier. The Chinese company could now be planning on launching it next week.

Xiaomi has posted a teaser on Weibo that shows an unannounced product. While it doesn't specifically mention what is in store, the water ripples at the bottom could be a subtle hint at the forthcoming Water Purifier.
Earlier this year, as a part of its fifth anniversary, Xiaomi sold more than 1.34 million connected devices alongside 2.12 million phones. During the 12 hour sale, the company managed to sell 770,000 smart appliances, 208,000 Mi Bands, 79,000 Mi Wi-Fi, 38,600 Mi TVs, and 31,000 Mi Air Purifiers, and 247,000 and 45,000 units of the Mi Power Strips, Mi Smart Scales respectively.
Xiaomi has been quite open about its ambition for an ecosystem of connected devices. It has invested over $200 million in Midea, a Chinese home appliance maker with a portfolio including air conditioners, refrigerators and kitchen appliances.
