Xiaomi, the brand best known for its electronic products, namely smartphones. However, the company has consistently dabbled with other products that are completely different from its technological backgrounds. These offshoots include bags, sneakers and even a travel suitcase which is transparent.
On November 27th, Xiaomi’s official Weibo account announced the limited edition transparent version of the Mi Suitcase. The unique travel partner arrives exclusively to certain Xiaomi Home flagship stores in seven different cities. It will be available starting from 30th November 2019 and will carry a price tag of 499 Yuan or roughly 71 US dollars.
The company announced the launch of this transparent edition suitcase on its official Weibo account. This version is in line with the transparent versions of its flagship smartphones. In addition to smartphones, the company has also launched a transparent version of its Mi Band 4. Xiaomi clarified that this suitcase is limited edition so it will only be available for a short time. Taking a closer look at the promotional images, the suitcase is as one would imagine a transparent suitcase to be. One can quickly glance at all the contents of the suitcase without opening it.
According to the official notes, the transparent suitcase from Xiaomi is made with urban elements in mind. What it exactly means is open to anyone’s imagination, but the unique and bold design will help it grab public and media attention.
The see-through body works both as a cool product as well as a potential security risk. This suitcase looks cool but it also allows thieves to peep at the valuables inside. It could also be embarrassing or amusing for people around depending on what you are carrying around. This limited edition version will be exclusive to 14 Xiaomi Mi Home flagship stores in seven cities in China.
A report from GizmoChina also noted that this transparent suitcase is not new. It launched a transparent suitcase as part of the Xiaomi 90 Points Suitcase lineup to celebrate the three year anniversary last year. The new transparent suitcase is only limited to China. We are not sure if and when it will make its way to India.
