Xiaomi MiWiFi 802.11ac NAS Powered by Broadcom BCM4709 SoC

Last month, Xiaomi teased the public with pictures of a new device, but gave very few details. The company have now provided further details, and the box shown below turns out to be an 802.11 NAS (Network Access Storage) powered by Broadcom BCM4709 dual core Cortex A9 Wi-Fi 802.11ac SoC.

MiWiFi_NASXiaomi provided the following technical specifications for MiWiFi NAS:

  • SoC – Broadcom BCM4709 dual-core Cortex A9 processor @ 1 GHz
  • System Memory – 256MB DDR3
  • Storage – SATA interface with 1TB Hard drive
  • Connectivity
    • 2x Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports
    • Dual band WiFi 802.11ac (2.4/5GHz)
    • NFC (at the top of the device)
  • USB – 1x USB 2.0 host port
  • Misc – Fan for cooling

The company will launch a sale for Beta units on the 19th of December, for the Chinese market only, and the NAS will come disassembled in a wooden case with a TB harddrive, a power supply, cables, and the tools to put all pieces together. It will also include a membership card to access a movie download service.

The SATA drive is inserted via the bottom side of the NAS, and the top features an NFC chip to communicate with a your smartphone. I understand (via Google Translate) that the NAS will be somewhat customizable, as you’ll be able to develop and install your own plugins, an smartphone app is available for management, and you’ll also be able to use it as an home automation platform to control your lights, aircon, TV, etc… It also appear the router features a technology, not involving beer cans, to direct the beam to extend Wi-Fi range. You can find details on miwifi.com (Chinese).

Retail availability and pricing is not available at this time, and the device may never officially be sold outside China, excluding of course, via sites like Aliexpress.

My thoughts exactly. The Zyxel NSA310 has 256MB and it’s cheap and old!
