Most smartphone manufacturers are getting into the audio market. We recently witnessed the launch of Xiaomi’s Mi Wireless Earphones 2 and before that, there were Realme’s Buds Air earbuds. It’s just on Monday that Poco confirmed to launch its true wireless earbuds called Poco Pop Buds. The Poco earbuds are heading to the country very soon. Following Poco, Redmi now announces to launch a new audio product in the country.
The teaser posted on social media channels suggests that Redmi true wireless earbuds as it notes “no strings attached”. Although Redmi didn’t confirm the name of the product it could likely be the Redmi AirDots S which are already available in Redmi’s home market, China. Redmi AirDots S launched in China very recently at an aggressive price point.
This is the first time we will witness Redmi launch an audio product in the country. The earbuds are priced at CNY 100 in China which roughly translates to around Rs 1,100. If the Redmi AirDots are really coming if a price tag similar to China it can create a buzz in India’s audio market.
