Xiaomi releases a lot of new products every year. Apart from smartphones, the company releases other lifestyle products and electronic devices too. Previously, we have seen products from Xiaomi such as Bluetooth Speakers, Mi Band lineup, Smart fans and many such products. Talking about the speakers, Xiaomi has already released speakers powered by Bluetooth over the past few years. Now, we might see the company come up with a new Bluetooth Speaker.
This is because we have found a new Bluetooth Speaker being listed on the Bluetooth SIG website. This is a website where Bluetooth-powered devices are certified. And the website reveals that this new speaker will be named as Mi Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker. Interestingly, the speaker has been listed in the audio and visual category. This reveals that the speaker might have some sort of a display on it. Another factor to keep a note of is that this Mi Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker comes with Bluetooth 5.0 support.
Bluetooth 5.0 is the latest version of Bluetooth and is released as an upgrade to Bluetooth 4.2. The latest version of Bluetooth comes with much-improved connectivity and range. As the speaker is named as an Outdoor one, we might see it being certified with water resistance as well. Also, this Bluetooth speaker might have a rugged design and longer battery life for outdoor usage.
At the moment, there is no information as to when this speaker will be released by Xiaomi. However, it has now been certified by Bluetooth SIG which means that the biggest hurdle has been crossed. Therefore, the company should release this speaker soon and it is possible that we will see its release this month in China. Also, this will be the first Bluetooth speaker from Xiaomi with Bluetooth 5.0 support. Apart from that, Xiaomi is holding a launch event on July 17 in India for its Redmi K20 series launch.
