Xiaomi Launches Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C
On the 2nd of August, the Chinese conglomerate, Xiaomi launched the Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C in its home country. As the name suggests, it is a phone that is made while keeping children in mind. However, instead of resembling a conventional smartphone, it looks like a smartwatch.
Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C Design and Features
In terms of looks, the Mi phone watch has a minimalist yet elegant design. The front of the device features a 1.3 inch colour display that has a resolution of 240 x 240 px. To prevent the 2.5d display against scratches, it has Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Also, the display has an oleophobic AF coating that keeps fingerprints at bay.
Besides, the front of the Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C has an f/2.4 aperture equipped 2 MP camera which can be used for making video calls.
The wrist strap of the Xiaomi phone watch is made out of soft silicone which is similar to what is found on the company’s Mi Band lineup.
The device is powered by a 780 mah battery which can be charged with the help of a proprietary connector cable. In terms of connectivity, the Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C has Wi-Fi, GPS, 4G VoLTE and NFC.
With the help of NFC connectivity and builtin E-wallet, kids can also make wireless payments at more than 4000 locations which include rail stations, airports and shopping malls.
Other notable features of the phone watch include an alarm clock functionality, chat application, music playback and an audio assistant. Also, the parents can remotely monitor the location of their children with a combination of GPS and 4G connectivity.
Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C Price And Availability
The Xiaomi made watch phone is offered in multiple vivid colours which include Cherry Red and Dark Blue. The device is currently limited to China and is priced at CNY 398 (around Rs 4,000).
All in all, the Mi Rabbit Children Phone Watch 3C is a good alternative to providing kids with a smartphone. Also, we feel, this is more of a utilitarian gadget rather than being built for entertainment purpose.
