Named the "AirDots", the true wireless in-ears look to share numerous same features with the AirPods, including support for Bluetooth 5.0, tappable controls on the casing, and a portable charging case. In recent news, you may have read that the next generation of Apple AirPods, being called AirPods 2, might feature Bluetooth 5.0.

As rumored earlier, the smartphone giant Xiaomi has finally unveiled it's truly wireless yet budget friendly earphones named as Mi AirDots Youth Edition, in its homeland China. The price of the Xiaomi AirDots Youth Edition is 199 yuan, around 28 U.S. dollars in exchange, and will be offered for sale on the Chinese market on 11 November this year, but it will not be long before it reaches the rest of the countries. At less than $30 compared to the $159.99 price tag of the AirPods, it's a shame that these devices (nor any other Xiaomi smartphone accessories or even the smartphones themselves) aren't available to the United States market; however, there is a light at the end of the tunnel: Xiaomi's Operational Project Manager for the North America region, Aaron Yang, announced on Reddit Tuesday that the company will be hosting a NY event in December to show off some of the brand's latest and greatest products.

Xiaomi at its launch event has promoted the new AirDots Youth Edition as being immune to frequent disconnections.
