If you remember Xiaomi, along with partner company Yi, launched Go-Pro like action cameras in the past. Yi Technology has confirmed that will be making an appearance at the upcoming CES where it will showcase its new action camera called the Yi 4K+. The company has also said that the new camera will have the capability shoot 4K videod at 60 frames per second.

Successor to the Yi 4K, the new camera is expected to be almost similar in terms of hardware. The Yi 4K came with a 2.19-inch 640x360 resolution LCD touchscreen with Gorilla Glass Retina. It came with a 12MP Sony sensor, a wide angle lens, f/2.8 aperture for photos, two hours of battery life, Wi-Fi stream support, dual microphones, 5GHz Wi-Fi support and EIS. Priced at $250 (Rs 17,00 approx) it had the capability to record 4K videos at 30 frames per second.

There aren't a lot of cameras in the market today that can shoot 4K at 60 fps, so the Yi 4K+ is something to lookout for.

The company is also planning to launch a drone as it shared some information around the upcoming product. Called the Erida drone, the company says that it will be the fastest three-rotor drone on the market with speeds of up to 75 mph. The company also mentioned that initial tests allowed the drone to fly for up to 40 minutes. The Erida drone will be showcased along with the new action camera at CES 2017 in January.
