Xiaomi is finally going to launch its highly anticipated Mi 10 in India on May 8. The company will also bring its first truly wireless earphones to the country. Although the brand hasn’t confirmed the name of the earphones it is highly likely to be the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 that is already available in China and European markets.
The launch announcement tweet includes a video that shows the earphones inside a charging case, with the lid slightly opened. The company did not reveal the product’s name but in the video, they resemble the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2.
We love the wireless world.
Mi fans, we’re launching one more product 🎧 you all have been waiting for, along with #Mi10 on May 8th.

Xiaomi already sells Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 in various markets priced at Euro 80 (approximately Rs 6,600). The India pricing is expected to be comparatively lower, which will help the product compete with other truly wireless earbuds available in the country including the Realme Buds Air, which are priced at Rs 3,999.
Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 sport an Apple AirPods like design that sits inside the ear. Some of the key features of the product are Bluetooth 5.0 support, 14.2mm drivers, support for smart voice assistants like Google Assistant and Siri.
The device runs the LHDC Bluetooth codec, which is similar to Qualcomm’s aptX and Sony’s LDAC Bluetooth codecs.
Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Jain in a video conference with the press on Monday said that the Mi 10 will be an expensive device compared to other products because of complex components and flagship-level features. He told indianexpress.com that the Mi 10 will be completely imported since the components cannot be developed in India.
