The Xiaomi Mi Water Purifier is priced at 1,299 Yuan (approx. Rs 13,279). The appliance has been developed by Yunmi Technology and the purifier makes use of Reverse Osmosis (RO) in order to purify the water. This is the same process that is used by the bottled pure water filtration, medical water and desalinization.
