Update-14th Feb 2020: Xiaomi India has posted another teaser video that hints at a smart voice assistant integrated into the product and the product could indeed be a portable smart speaker.
Earlier: Xiaomi’s Redmi brand recently launched the Redmi 8A Dual, 10000 and 20000mAh power banks in India. At the start of the year, the company said that it will bring more Mi branded products to India. On similar lines, Xiaomi has officially teased a new audio product launch in India on February 17th, 2020.
The teaser posted by Xiaomi India reads “Time to go big on sound. 🔊 While you take a guess, do think about where will you #. Unveiling on 17th February”. While it is not clear what the actual product is, going by the hashtag #CarryYourSound, we can expect the company to expand its speaker lineup with a new portable speaker or it could launch true wireless earbuds (finally?).
Furthermore, a close look at the image in the teaser reveals a diaphragm of a speaker. So, it indeed could be a portable speaker. We should know more information once the company unveils the product officially on February 17.
