The MI Portable WiFi follows the MI WiFi Router that included a 1Ghz Broadcom processor and had 1TB of build storage. The move further emphasises how Xiaomi has diversified from a smartphone manufacturer and is gradually moving towards all sorts of consumer electronics devices including smart TVs. Having hired Hugo Barra,who was the VP for Android at Google , Xiaomi aims to make major inroads in the international market over the next year. The company is expected to make its presence felt in India soon alongside the likes of Oppo and Meizu.
