Xiaomi Yi Action Camera 2 Now Available With 4K Support
Xiaomi has announced the successor of its GoPro-like Yi action camera. The Yi Action Camera 2 features better hardware and is capable of shooting 4K videos at 30fps at a price of CNY 1,199 in China.
The new Yi Action Camera 2 is priced three times more than the earlier Yi camera which was priced around CNY 399. It is capable of recording Full HD videos at 120fps and 240fps.
The camera offers a 12MP Sony IMX377 sensor with f/2.8 aperture. There is a 2.19-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. It is backed by a 1,400mAh battery which promises 2 hours of battery life. The device supports Wi-Fi and comes with a microSD card slot.
Just like GoPro, Yi can be used up to 40 meters underwater and comes with a smartphone app that can remotely control the camera as well as edit and share footage. The first generation offered a 16MP sensor with support for shooting 1080p video at 60 frames per second.
Like the earlier version, Xiaomi may not launch the Yi Action Camera 2 in other markets apart from China.
Xiaomi recently launched its Mi Max smartphone . This is the biggest smartphone Xiaomi has ever launched as it flaunts a massive 6.44-inch Full HD display. The company had also launched a new health-tracking device called iHealth Box . The iHealth box basically measures body vitals like blood pressure and heart beat, and connects to the phone via WiFi.
