Xiaomi teases Apple Watch-inspired Wear OS smartwatch for imminent announcement

Mijia unveils its own Xiaomi Mi Watch press render

And in a teaser the company posted today to the Chinese social media platform Weibo, the forthcoming watch looks a lot like - you guessed it - the Apple Watch.

Xiaomi, one of China's main players in the smartphone market, might be about to expand its wearable portfolio by creating a smartwatch based on WearOS. The similarities have flowed from the top of the company on down, with Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun himself unabashedly dressing in jeans and a black shirt a la Steve Jobs, and at least one Xiaomi presentation has even concluded with an announcement of "One More Thing ..." along the lines of Apple's famous tease. On the side is a crown and possibly the sleep/wake button - much like the Apple Watch. Now, the official Mijia Weibo account has shared renders of the upcoming "Mi Watch" showing off its design in its entirety along with some key features of the watch.

Xiaomi went as far to include a picture of the Mi Watch's innards, which show that it will be equipped with Wi-Fi, GPS and NFC chips, as well as an eSIM.
