Xiaomi has launched Mi AirDots Youth Edition with Bluetooth 5 support.

The listing for the new pair of Apple AirPods was discovered in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's regulatory database early this month. Unfortunately, there is no confirmation from Xiaomi as to when its new products can be expected in the Indian or global markets.

Like with most other Xiaomi products, the AirDots are unlikely to be available outside of China.

Sources also suggest that the AirPods 2 could support Siri and be water-resistant, in addition to releasing with the promised, yet evasive, wireless charging case, but none of those reports have been confirmed.

What's clear on the other hand is the fact that the tech for wireless earbuds will continue developing to the point in which they become a part of the box in which phones come pretty soon. Once juiced up, the earbuds reportedly provide a playback time of four hours. You will be able to buy via Xiaomi Youpin, Xiaomi Mall, Jingdong, Suning and Tmall.
