Yesterday, Xiaomi teased a new product launch in its smart home category in India. The brand has already launched security cameras, air purifiers, smart bulbs, water purifiers and more in this segment. The teaser shared by the brand yesterday revealed that the new product is a robotic floor vacuum cleaner. The video posted by Xiaomi had a drawing of the appliance which appeared to be identical to its smart robot vacuum cleaner with Laser Detect Systems (LDS), which was announced in China last year in August. Now, the company has gone ahead and launched the Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P in India with a Laser Detect System and Intelligent floor mapping as its USP.
Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P Cleaner specifications and features
The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P flaunts a Laser Detect System, which lets it automatically identify the room and save the map. It uses an upgraded SLAM algorithm, and 12 sets of precision sensors including anti-collision and anti-drop sensors among others. These sensors allow the Mop-P to navigate accurately, cross obstacles up to 2cm in height and avoid any sort of fall, like from a staircase. The cleaner is equipped with a powerful 2,100Pa suction and high-end brushless motor for precision cleaning. Speaking of which, the smart vacuum cleaner features two cleaning modes – Sweeping and Mopping mode and Sweeping-only mode. The robot vacuum cleaner features a 55ml trash bin as well as a 2-in-1 water tank. The water tank is electronically controlled and comes with three gears of water dispensing modes, which can be chosen based on the intensity of cleaning and type of floor. There’s also a water clogging prevention mechanism. The Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P Cleaner can simulate a manual mopping effect with dual direction repeated wiping for deep cleaning.
The Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum Mop-P can be connected to your smartphone via the Mi Home App. The app will then give you options like remote control, real-time mapping, schedule cleaning, spot cleaning, and room zoning to select a particular zone for cleaning. The app also let users set up a virtual wall or restricted zone to ensure that the vacuum cleaner doesn’t enter areas like the washroom or a carpet. As for the battery, the vacuum cleaner is equipped with a 3,200mAh unit, which lasts long enough to clean a small room. If the battery runs out midway, the Mop-P can go back to its docking station and resume cleaning from the last breakpoint automatically. Technical features of the cleaner include a quad-core Cortex A7 SoC with Mali 400 GPU, Wi-Fi support, and around 70dB of operating noise in standard mode.
