Last year Xiaomi released their Yi Action Camera to give tough competition to GoPro, and this year the company has released its successor! Named the Xiaomi Yi 4K action camera, it features upgraded hardware and is also capable of recording videos in 4K at 30fps.
The Yi 4K comes equipped with a 12MP Sony IMX377 sensor, a 155-degree wide-angle lens and an aperture of f/2.8. It uses an Ambarella A9SE95 chipset to power the whole system and support its advanced capabilities. Apart from 4K, users can record videos in 2.5K at 30fps, 1440p at 60fps, 1080p at 120fps, 960p at 120fps, 720p at 240fps and WVGA at 240fps.

The camera can automatically change the frame rate depending on the lighting conditions so that users can get better low-light performance. It is also equipped with a 6-axis gyro electronic image stabilization system that makes taking high-quality pictures much easier. It even features dual-microphone sound absorption and supports LDC lens distortion correction.
A big change with the Yi action camera is that the new model now features a 2.19-inch touchscreen display and features a Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The Gorilla Glass makes it scratch resistant and impact resistant, and has a 16:9 screen ratio, 640 x 360 pixel with 330 PPI resolution.
The camera uses a 1,400mAh battery, which according to the company can last for up to 2 hours of continuous recording. It also features Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi capabilities. The Wi-Fi uses a Broadcom BCM43340 dual-band chip that supports both 5GHZ and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band with a maximum transfer rate of 30MB per second.
The camera can be bought in 3 colors – white, rose gold and black.
