Redmi India announced the Redmi 8A Dual and the Redmi Power Bank that comes in 10000 mAh and 20000mAh models. Come next week there will be another product launch but this time from Xiaomi India and the teaser released points at a speaker.
Apart from a budget-segment smartphone, Xiaomi has entered to its product portfolio to include televisions, fitness trackers, lifestyle products, smart home appliances, accessories, and audio. Like the rest of its range, Xiaomi’s audio products are competitively priced and cover a range of categories. The company is preparing for the launch of a new product – likely to be a portable Bluetooth speaker – on February 17, based on a new teaser posted by the company.
Xiaomi has posted a short video on Twitter, with the text “I like the sound of that” and “carry your sound”, followed by the unveiling date of February 17. The video teaser shows the glimpse of a speaker driver in the background. All of this points to the product being a portable Bluetooth speaker, possibly the Mi Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker that was launched in China in September last year. However, nothing has been revealed in the video teaser.
Coming to the Mi Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker, which is priced at CNY 199 (approximately Rs. 2,000) and could make its way to India at the same price. The device is IPX55 rated for dust and water resistance and has a 2,600mAh battery with a promised battery life of 8 hours per charge. To recall, Xiaomi’s last launch in this segment was the Mi Bluetooth Speaker Basic in 2017, which was launched at Rs. 1,799.
However, there is no word about the upcoming device, but we’ll find out what Xiaomi is launching on February 17.
