Apart from launching a new smartphone colour variant and a Mi TV at the CES 2017, Xiaomi announced the Mi Router HD. The company, through the router, aims to offer a secure and robust method for connecting all of your devices at home or at the work place. In an aluminium alloy housing, the router packs a Qualcomm IPQ8064 processor inside. It also comes along with an 8TB surveillance hard drive which backs up all of your data from connected devices automatically, which saves you from the trouble of manually doing the same.

The router also works in sync with the Time Machine and dropbox cloud for saving all of your data. The router even backs up your photo gallery, digital camera, laptop automatically, while integrating them all with Sonoa audio system.

The Mi Router also allows for multi-screen sharing and remote accessibility using the Mi Home app.

You can hold Afrin responsible for all the spelling and grammatical errors on Gear. She is a grammar Nazi and therefore edits most, if not all, of the copies for us. But naturally, all the writers are scared of her.
