Xiaomi is set to launch its latest flagship smartphones, the Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro in India on 15 October. The Mi 10T series will be with a new pair of TWS earbuds, as teased on Twitter.
Xiaomi took to Twitter earlier this afternoon to share a short video teaser for its next audio accessory to launch in India. The caption reads – “Looks like we’ve got a new product for you.” If you are someone like me and watch Xiaomi’s product launch closely, then you will know that it is Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic. This pair of TWS earphones was first unveiled in China as the Mi AirDots 2 SE, a global launch a few months later.
Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 Basic: Specs
It is a younger sibling for the Mi True Wireless earphones 2 which was launched in India in May this year. It sports a larger square-shaped case than the Redmi Earbuds S while earphones are much more visible. It weighs 48 grams while each earbud weighs just 4.7 grams.
These TWS earbuds are equipped with a 14.2 mm dynamic driver – similar to its older sibling. Each earbud is equipped with two high-sensitivity microphones to enable environmental noise cancellation (ENC). These earbuds, if you haven’t noticed already, have half the in-ear design. They support wear detection and stem control for music playback activating touch calls, answering calls, and voice assistants.
The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 supports the basic SBC / AAC codec. For battery life, Xiaomi has promised 20 hours of total playback on a one-time charge (earbuds + case). Earbuds offer up to 5 hours of music playback, which is OK-ish. The charging case can charge up to four times the earbuds and can be juiced through the USB Type-C port on the rear.
The price of these earbuds is 39.99 euros (about Rs 3,460), and we hope that it will come around the similar price tag in India as well.
Earlier, we had speculated that Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 might come to India in the form of basic Poco Pop Buds, but that does not seem to be the case here. Poco, for those unaware, has confirmed that it will be launching TWS earphones in the country and even a survey has been conducted to settle on the above name.
