Only hours after we reported that GoPro lowered the price of its HERO4 Session camera, another action camera has arrived in the US. The Xiaomi YI Action Camera was first available in China and as of today, it is available in the United States from Amazon for $99.95.
Since it can compete with GoPro and others in terms of image quality, Xiaomi has decided to make it more affordable for folks that don't need premium image quality. The camera still has quite good image thanks to Sony's 16 MP Exmor R BSI CMOS sensor that is capable of recording 1080p60 HD videos. There is also built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a 1,100 mAh battery.
