As you know, Xiaomi and Roborock are close partners in the production of robot vacuum cleaners. You might even have thought that Roborock is a sub-brand of Xiaomi, but actually it is a separate company that works closely with Xiaomi.
Xiaomi and Roborock produce some of the most popular robot vacuum cleaners on the market. Recently, a Chinese manufacturer announced the release of a new model of robot vacuum cleaner called Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7. This is a long and confusing name, so I will just call it Roborock T7.
The main features of the new robot vacuum cleaner are the new RR Mason 7.0 system, GLSLAM data processing algorithms, suction power of 2500Pa, as well as a 5200mAh battery, which provides up to 2.5 hours of battery life.
Let’s take a closer look at the appearance of the new Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 robot vacuum cleaner, and also talk about its new features.
Appearance Roborock T7 does not differ from its predecessors
As you can see, the design of Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 is practically no different from previous Roborock and Xiaomi robotic vacuum cleaners.
The first thing you should pay attention to is the three control buttons on the top of the case. They allow you to start/stop cleaning, return the robot vacuum cleaner to the charging base and local cleaning of an area of 1 square meter.
The dust box is located under the top lid. The water tank, as well as the platform with a microfiber cloth for cleaning floors, are located on the back of robot vacuum cleaner.
New Mopping System
By the way, Roborock T7 has new design of the water tank and mopping system. Now you do not need to turn the robot cleaner over to remove the water tank.
The new Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 robot vacuum cleaner received an increased dust box and water tank: 460 ml and 297 ml, respectively. This is more than enough for a complete cleaning cycle without having to clean both dust box and water tank.
At the bottom, there is only one brush for collecting garbage. Along the perimeter, as usual, there are bumpers and various sensors to prevent collisions with furniture, walls or falls from stairs.
The physical dimensions of the robot vacuum cleaner are 353 x 350 x 96.5 mm and weight – 3.5 kg.
At first glance, Roborock T7 has the same appearance as previous Roborock robot vacuum cleaners. However, the new model received a convenient system for cleaning floors, which is mounted on the back of the vacuum cleaner. Now you can change the microfiber cloth or water in the tank without turning the robot cleaner over.
New RR Mason 7.0 Algorithm
Well, it’s time to talk about new features. As I said at the beginning of this article, the main update in Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 is the new RR Mason 7.0 algorithm.
As you know, every robot vacuum cleaner uses a smart algorithm to build a cleaning route, recognize obstacles, surfaces, etc.
The new RR Mason 7.0 algorithm has learned to recognize the presence of clothing on the floor and animal excrement. Have you seen the video where the robot vacuum cleaner drove along the excrement of a pet and smashed them all over the apartment? Such a problem will not be with the new Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 robot vacuum cleaner.
Roborock T7 stores up to 4 maps
Also, the new system allows you to store up to four maps at a time. If you have a large house with several floors, the robot vacuum cleaner will automatically determine which map to use.
By the way, the robot vacuum cleaner is able to overcome thresholds up to 2 cm.
Distribution of mopping and sweeping by zones
As you already understood, Xiaomi Roborock T7 has the function of dry and wet cleaning. This does not surprise anyone.
However, the new robot vacuum cleaner received the function of distributing wet and dry cleaning in zones. For example, a vacuum cleaner automatically detects when a water tank is installed, and does not enter the carpet or other prohibited areas. If you remove the water tank, then the robot vacuum cleaner will clean everywhere.
Suction power increased
As I said, the suction power of Roborock T7 is 2500Pa. This is more than previous robot vacuum cleaners, for example, Roborock T6 has a suction power of 2000Pa.
By the way, did you know that the previous Roborock T6 was available only in black, while the new Roborock T7 will be available only in white? It would be better if the manufacturer offered both colors to choose from.
The maximum noise level of the new Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 robot vacuum cleaner is 67 dB. I agree with you that this is not very quiet, but you are unlikely to constantly use it in the most powerful mode.
Battery life has not changed
Finally, let’s talk about the battery. Xiaomi Roborock T7 is equipped with 5200 mAh battery. The cleaning time on a single charge is 2.5 hours or 250 square meters.
There are no changes compared to Roborock T6.
The previous version of the robot vacuum cleaner had the same battery capacity and the same battery life.
Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 is part of Xiaomi smart home ecosystem, so you can connect it to Mi Home app, as well as use XiaoAI voice assistant.
Most likely, Roborock T7 can be used with Roborock’s own application under the same name Roborock.
Price and buy Roborock T7
Unfortunately, the price of Xiaomi Roborock Stone Sweeping Robot T7 is not yet unveiled, but soon we will know it. The official presentation of the new-robot vacuum cleaner will be held March 23.
