Xiaomi Corp., the Chinese smartphone maker that challenged Apple Inc. with sleek designs and low prices, is planning to introduce its first drone at a price more than 20 percent below a comparable product from market leader SZ DJI Technology Co., according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

The drone, made by FIMI Technology, will record high-resolution 4K video and cost about 4,000 yuan ($610), the person said, asking not to be identified as the details are private. That compares with $799 for the Phantom 3 4K device on DJI’s website.
