Xiaomi is kind of a hot property in terms of its advent into India and already finding itself in the news. From releasing one of the best budget handsets of the year to being blacklisted by the Indian Air Force on charges of hacking, the company has seen it all.
However, the company is back in news once more. This time around, the company is said to be working on entering the "action camera" market. And if you know correctly, that segment is dominated by GoPro.
As revealed by a recent GizChina report, Xiaomi could be the first to take on GoPro and manufacture its own portable sports camera for the emerging sports market in China. "Apparently Xiaomi are teaming up with a company called Ant Technology based in Shanghai on the project and a release could be before the end of the year," the report adds.
As of now, GoPro is the biggest name in action camera for extreme sports. Its range of cameras are designed for use when climbing, skydiving and other such extreme stuff. And having a new rival in that segment may not be such welcoming news for GoPro.
As of now, we haven't got any details of the new action camera from Xiaomi. But even if it does fall in place, we are expecting Xiaomi to uphold its budget-centric smartphone strategy for the same.
We will get back to you on this as soon as we have more details. For the time being, stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
