Redmi India has been teasing a wireless personal audio product that will soon be launching on the Indian market. Fans of the brand have been guessing what the device could be, with Redmi AirDots S TWS earbuds and the Redmi Soundbar 2.0 leading the charge as popular choices. Xiaomi recently released the Redmi AirDots S TWS in China for 99 yuan (US$14).

The official Twitter account for Redmi India has recently posted two tweets so far pertaining to an upcoming audio product for the Indian market. The first tweet features a short video clip accompanied by the hashtag clue #NoStringsAttached. A second tweet shows personal audio devices ranging from a gramophone to a smartphone. Followers of the account have been posting guesses at what is coming, with Redmi AirDots S TWS earbuds and the Redmi Soundbar 2.0 standing out as the main contenders.

Ironically, the two video clips from each post seem to lean more toward either product. The first post shows the Redmi brand name flashing up in colored LEDs while accompanied by a dance track, and it certainly seems to point to an audio product such as a party speaker or a soundbar, which could mean an imminent release for the Bluetooth-capable Redmi Soundbar 2.0. The first Mi Soundbar cost ₹4,999 (US$66) upon its release in India, so a successor should be priced at a similar level.

However, the second clip actually seems to tease the Redmi AirDots S TWS earbuds instead. The video shows the evolution of personal audio, progressing from the gramophone through the Walkman to phones with wired headphones. It seems logical that the next step would be phones with wireless headphones, especially as the mystery product is shaped like a phone. Xiaomi priced the Redmi AirDots S on the Chinese market at just 99 yuan (US$14) and some have guessed at a price tag of around ₹1,000 (US$13) for the Indian market.

Of course, it might be a completely different audio product altogether that Redmi is teasing on its Twitter account or fans of the brand in India might be really lucky and actually witness both the Redmi AirDots S TWS earbuds and the Redmi Soundbar 2.0 being launched at the same time.
