Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi has announced the launch of a new pair of truly wireless earbuds in China called the Redmi AirDots 2. Launched through a crowdfunding campaign, the Redmi AirDots 2 looks to succeed the Redmi AirDots launched in March 2019. At first glance, the earphones look almost identical to the Redmi Earbuds S that the company launched a few months back in India. Some of the key features of the Redmi AirDots 2 include 12-hours of battery life with 300mAh battery and support for Bluetooth 5.0, which according to Redmi, offers two times faster data transfer speeds. However, there's no word at the moment on when Redmi plans to launch AirDots 2 outside China, including India.
