Xiaomi’s first smartwatch is expected to feature a circular display and form factor with two buttons on the side. Also, the company is planning to launch the Mi Note 2 this August, which is believed to be a flagship smartphone that will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 6GB of RAM.
