Xiaomi officially in the refrigeration sector with four Mijia refrigerators
The four Mijia refrigerators are all made of titanium with the first three air-cooled and frost-free (anti-freeze) function. Compared to traditional refrigerators, these will avoid the formation of frost, so the food will not "stick" to the refrigerator and we will have a more uniform internal temperature.
In addition to air cooling, refrigerators are also designed to save space, with energy-saving silencers and precise temperature control. The four-door refrigerator by Mijia (Cold Cross model) also has support for Xiao Ai's voice control and through the Mi Home app, which could be very convenient (for Chinese users) to adjust the refrigerator settings depending on the food inside.
In terms of energy savings and noise, all four refrigerators can maintain low noise operation of 39 dB. The four-door refrigerator and two-door 483L refrigerator both come with the new Chinese 2 level energy efficiency standards and the daily energy consumption is 1,05 kWh / 24 hours and 0,99 kWh / 24 hours.

The daily energy consumption is 0,78 kWh / 24 hours and 0,58 kWh / 24 hours respectively.
