Xiaomi shows its Mi Watch watch on video

The Xiaomi Mi Watch is getting closer to introducing itself and the brand has fully revealed its appearance and how its interface works. On video!

Juicy novelties are approaching in the Xiaomi device ecosystem , the Christmas campaign promises to be as juicy as it is at odds. And not only on phones, but also, in the field of smart watches. If the brand has the most popular activity wristbands with the Mi Band , why not do the same in the field of smartwatch?

Yesterday we highlighted that Xiaomi itself, through the account in the Chinese social network Weibo de Mijia , unveiled the design of the next Xiaomi Mi Watch in addition to offering some of its key features. The aspect makes it clear: the brand has been totally inspired by the Apple Watch . And it has integrated an interface that, apparently, seems quite complete.

MIUI for Watch, this is the name of the Xiaomi Mi Watch watch interface

Far from staying in a simple interface, in Xiaomi they have proposed to load their first watch with options based on adapting the mobile interface to the smartwatch . In this sense, the name chosen is MIUI for Watch , a declaration of intent that leaves no doubt: the brand seeks to convey an experience similar to that received by those who use their phones.

Although all the rumors have long insisted that the Xiaomi Mi Watch will come with Wear OS , the video published by Mijia on Weibo does not make it so clear. The interface looks highly personalized, with a grid of applications between which it is possible to move vertically using the rotary button on the side . Apparently in the video, the Xiaomi Mi Watch will have access to a multitude of applications (surely from the Xiaomi app store) and can even play videos.

Below is the video of how the Xiaomi Mi Watch looks on the wrist and how its interface works ( via XDA Developers ).

As previously filtered, and corroborated in the video, it is most likely that this Xiaomi Mi Watch has two versions: one with MIUI for Watch for China and one with Wear Os for international sale. It will not take long to corroborate it since it is expected that on November 5 the watch will see the light next to the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 (in China). Since the latter will also be presented in Spain, the logical thing will be that Xiaomi also unveils the Mi Watch in this country .

Qualcomm will finally have a processor at the height of Wear OS

A filtered Qualcomm document details the Snapdragon 3300, a new processor for watches and other wearables that will be manufactured in 12 nm.

How many watches with the Google operating system do you know? It is not that there are too tremendously popular, but a large catalog of different brands that replicates features with different designs and finishes . And among these features there is usually a common denominator: a Qualcomm processor, usually outdated.

Although Qualcomm has been updating the range of processors for smart watches, the latest generation Wear was developed on a Snapdragon 400 , 2013 processor. With this huge gap in a sector as competitive as that of smart watches, manufacturers demanded a high-level processor, something Qualcomm would be about to unveil with the future Snapdragon Wear 3300 .

Qualcomm would update its range of processors for wearables with the Snapdragon Wear 3300, based on the Snapdragon 429

As we said, it is true that the Wear OS watch catalog is nurtured and varied. There are manufacturers like Mobvoi , Casio , Michael Kors, Fossil … It even seems that Xiaomi will end up joining Wear OS with its own watch. And when choosing a processor for the wearable there are not too many options apart from Qualcomm .

As XDA Developers found in the Code Aurora Forum , Qualcomm has uploaded the Linux kernel code of a mysterious Snapdragon Wear 3300 (SDW3300 device) . According to the kernel data, the new platform would be based on the Snapdragon 429 , a qualitative leap with respect to the platform used by the Snapdragon Wear 3100, the 400 .

The new SoC for smart watches and devices suitable for clothing would be manufactured in 12 nm (the previous Snapdragon 3100 has a 28 nm manufacturing process) and would have 4 ARM Cortex-A53 cores at 1.95 GHz . In addition, Qualcomm would include a second low-power processor for less demanding device tasks; thereby achieving greater autonomy, something vital in a smartwatch.

We do not know when Qualcomm will present the new platform for smart watches, but its launch should not be too far since the company will soon reveal its most powerful SoC of 2020, the Snapdragon 865 . It would not be strange if both processors saw the light in the same event .
