Yesterday, Xiaomi claimed that it will announce a new smartphone series at 10 am this morning. Chinese companies adhere to their commitments and today launched a CC series in cooperation with Meitu. The new series is expected to be aimed at selfi centric users. The first CC Series device, which is expected to debut, is codenamed “Little Fairy.”
Xiaomi is known for selling impressive mobile phones at nominal prices, while Meitu phones have always had a top-level self-timer. Therefore, the upcoming Xiaomi CC smartphone will have a selfi centric function and will bring an affordable price tag. Now that the company has launched a new series, it will soon begin to use the features of the first CC smartphone in the next few days.
Some reports claim that the Xiaomi CC series can target female audiences. The “Little Fairy” code also suggests that Xiaomi and Meitu AI Aesthetics Lab will work together to launch customized smartphones for female users.
In November 2018, Meitu was known for its self-portrait app and self-timer-based smartphones, and established a strategic partnership with Xiaomi. This cooperation enabled Xiaomi to use Meitu’s image-related algorithms to build, design and promote new mobile phones.
