Most brands launch a device in the international market first, and then bring it to India in the following months.

Here are six such interesting gadgets that are expected to arrive in India soon.

After months of rumors circulating about Xiaomi’s smartwatch, it was finally announced last month.

It is the world’s first smartwatch to use a 28nm GPS sensor for enhanced location tracking, and has a 1.34-inch circular display with a resolution of 300×300 pixels.

It runs on a 1.2 GHz processor with 512MB RAM, has 4GB storage and it comes with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The company claims that the 200mAh battery will be good for five days of battery life with regular use. Other features include a continuous heart rate sensor and IP67 certification for water and dust resistance.

The smartwatch was launched in China at a price of 799 Yuan (about `8,000) and we are expecting Xiaomi to launch it in India soon

Dell's new Alienware laptops

Virtual reality is becoming quite a rage, and Dell has announced its new VR supporting Alienware laptops to cash in on the buzz.

The new laptops use updated Nvidia GTX 10 series Pascal GPUs that enable VR output.They have 8GB RAM, and you can choose from three screen sizes: 17.3 inches (Alienware 17), 15.6 inches (Alienware 15) and 13.3 inches (Alienware 13). The range will allow users to configure the laptops with a choice of sixth generation Intel Core i processor, and Sata hard drive or SSD storage­although we doubt India will get this feature of self configuration. No information is available about the price of the new range.

However, they are expected in the International market in November, and we’re hoping India will get them by the end of 2016.
