Xiaomi, India's top smartphone brand today opened its first ever Mi Home Experience Store in Chennai. Also, the first experience store is the company's 25th Mi Home store, and it's located at Level 1, Phoenix Market City Mall, Velachery, Chennai. This flagship store will be open to public starting March 1, 2018. In its first ever Experience Store, Xiaomi will be showcasing wide-range of IoT products which are yet to be made available in the country. Also, all the Xiaomi products ranging from smartphones, Mi TV 4, VR headset, earphones, etc. will also be displayed at the store. The idea of opening an Experience Center is to give customers an opportunity to have a first-hand experience of the vast and diverse array of products that Xiaomi has to offer on a global scale.
Xiaomi also said that it would be collecting significant feedback from the users, which will be incorporated into future offerings by Xiaomi in the country.
At the Xiaomi Mi Store Experience Center, the company will showcase several interesting products ranging from Mi Kettle, Mi Bike, Mi Rice Cooker to Mi Weighing scale, and Mi Ninebot. And as stated, all the Xiaomi products which are available in the Indian market will be showcased at the store too.
Xiaomi will also be displaying the Mi Body Fat Scale, which calculates and shows an individual’s Body Mass Ratio (BMI) and accurately detects the body data. Not only this, but the experience centre will also have a plethora of household technology products that are designed to enhance the real-life usage.
Currently, Xiaomi has 24 Mi Homes in the country and one Experience Center, which they launched today in Chennai. At the event, Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India said that the company is aiming to open 100 Mi Homes stores in India within this year itself. For the unaware, Xiaomi first opened the Mi Home Store in India back in May 2017, and since then, it has opened 24 Mi Homes across various cities such as Pune, Delhi NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, etc.
There's a massive chance that Xiaomi will be eying to bring its IoT products to the Indian market and mark its name in the IoT platform. The recently launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 smartphones will also be displayed at the Experience Store.
