Xiaomi now has a drone, and it takes off May 25

The ambitious Chinese company is growing beyond its smartphone base with a yet-to-be-named quadcopter.

Xiaomi, show us more of your drone.

Xiaomi announced Friday that it will land in the quickly growing drone market by releasing its first quadcopter at an event next week.

The company spilled the news on its Miui blog with no details beyond two photos, one of a spider-like drone and the other of a toy bamboo-copter (the kind you spin in your hand to get it in the air). The only mention of a possible product name came in a closing tagline that said, "Shall we discover the world with Mi_________ ?"

Today's news follows just on the heels of Xiaomi's announcement of its Mi Box, a 4K Android TV-powered set-top box that it showed at Google I/O on Wednesday.

CNET will bring you more details on Xiaomi's drone once the official news drops next Wednesday. Check back with us then.
