In addition to its new CC9 Pro smartphone, Xiaomi will also reveal its new smartwatch next week and it looks like a direct rip-off of the Apple Watch Series 1 to Series 3.

Reports out about this forthcoming smartwatch suggest Xiaomi may decide to go with "Xiaomi Mi Watch" for the name, and that it will definitely use Google's Wear OS platform. The excitement in the company comes from the fact that this is the first time Xiaomi is launching a smartwatch under its Mi brand.

The Mi Watch, as it'll probably be called, has roughly the same shape as Apple's watch, and a very similar digital crown on the side.

According to Lei Jun, the new smartwatch will come in two colours - Black and Silver.

Trump officials don't know where he got Baghdadi 'whimpering' details
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State group, was captured and killed in a U.S. military raid in Syria on Monday. Defense Secretary Mark Esper offered some of his most detailed remarks to date about the mission at a news briefing on Monday.

In the image, we can see that the device will sport a 3D curved glass on the front and an Apple Watch Esque crown on the right.

We already know what the Xiaomi Watch looks like thanks to an official render released by the company's CEO, Lei Jun and also a live photo that leaked afterward. More features of the Xiaomi Mi Watch include GPS, NFC support and Wi-Fi. With its 108MP camera and 5x optical zoom, the phone can give many flagships a run for their money. Well, if true, that would make Xiaomi's designers and engineers some of the greatest artists of the modern tech era, seeing how often (and shamelessly) the Chinese company has stolen ideas and concepts from none other than Steve Jobs's baby over the years.

The new wearable is simply called the Xiaomi Watch and it will be announced on the 5th November in China.
