Xiaomi is one company from China, which received numerous positive feedbacks from consumers for their products worldwide. Now, Hugo Barra said via his Twitter account they will also attend the Google I/O and be part of the event. For Hugo Barra itself, the presence of the Google I/O is not something new as he had often introduce some new functionality Android at the event. However, the presence of the brand Xiaomi may be a little surprised at the event.
From the teaser shared by Hugo Barra, they show the possibility of Android TV devices at the event. Xiaomi has joined the arena of smart televisions with mitv presence, but rather to use interface MIUI for their smart televisions – while limiting the supply of their products to markets outside China. If it is true they announced products based on television at the event, perhaps it will be addressed to the international market, and we see it’s impossible not offered through the Google Store as Nexus product and so on.
Google I/O will be held later on Thursday morning, where Google is expected to share a variety of new developments and their software products to the public.
