Yesterday was Xiaomi EV day, but fans of Xiaomi smartphones and wearables will also get their money’s worth even sooner than the first SU7 and SU7 Max electric cars. The Xiaomi 14, Xiaomi 14 Pro and the Xiaomi Watch S3 are now available in the two pretty new colors of the Xiaomi electric fleet – at least in China.
Yesterday was an important day for Xiaomi in China. The first electric vehicles from the Xiaomi factory are not yet available – this will take a few more months, but at least a lot of photos of the two electric cars have already been displayed and many technical details published. Anyone who is already toying with the idea of buying one of the two stylish Xiaomi cars one day can already do so, at least in China.
At the end of the launch event, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun surprisingly announced two limited editions of the Xiaomi 14, Xiaomi 14 Pro and the Xiaomi Watch S3. Although they come with hardly any technical innovations, the Aqua Blue and Olive Green color options fit perfectly into the new Xiaomi EV universe, especially since the light blue and olive green shades are the two standout colors for the Chinese company’s electromobility offensive.
Prices for Xiaomi 14, Xiaomi 14 Pro and Watch S3 in the Limited Editions
The Xiaomi 14 and Xiaomi 14 Pro are only available in the two limited editions in the most expensive categories with 16 GB RAM and 1 TB storage, so the costs are relatively high, but not more expensive than the models already available in the standard colors. The Xiaomi 14 in Aqua Blue and Olive Green costs CNY 4999 ($709), the Xiaomi 14 Pro CNY 5999 ($850). The Limited Edition of the Xiaomi Watch S3 costs CNY 100 more than the classic eSIM version and thus CNY 1099 ($155), but buyers also get a special bezel with Limited Edition lettering.

Growing up in regional Australia, I first became acquainted with computers in my early teens after a broken leg from a football (soccer) match temporarily condemned me to a predominately indoor lifestyle. Soon afterwards I was building my own systems. Now I live in Germany, having moved here in 2014, where I study philosophy and anthropology. I am particularly fascinated by how computer technology has fundamentally and dramatically reshaped human culture, and how it continues to do so.
