- Xiaomi could be working on a pair of new TWS earphones.

Xiaomi is reportedly bringing to the market new TWS earbuds that will come with the much hyped Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature. The feature will be the major selling point for the earphones and will see the company calling the device the Mi Active Noise Cancelling Wireless earphones.
The information comes courtesy of GizmoChina which claims the product has received its Bluetooth Certification and it is expected to launch soon. The reports reveals that the earphones have the model number LYXQEJ05WM and bring with them Bluetooth 5.0, support SBC and AAC audio codecs, and have an IPX4 rating.
However, the report does not reveal much apart from this. There no clarity on the launch date of the device or its other specs. Although, certain reports suggest the TWS earbuds may see themselves being launched alongside the Mi 10 Pro Plus.
Earlier in the year, the company had launched the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 with an AirPods-esque design. The earbuds come with a 14.2mm dynamic drivers inside. While the earbuds don't bring ANC, they do support environmental noise cancellation which is said to suppress 90 per cent of surrounding noise. Xiaomi also touts "one-step pairing" on the earbuds, which should mean that Xiaomi smartphones will detect the presence of the earbuds in the vicinity as soon as they are turned on.
Xiaomi claims the Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 can deliver "unmatched audio performance" using the LHDC codec, which can transfer data 3 times more than the standard SBC codec. However, it is not as common as Qualcomm's aptX or Sony's LDAC. The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 feature Bluetooth v5.0 for pairing with smartphones and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The earbuds are supported on both Android and iOS devices.
The Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 are compatible with Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, and even works with Amazon Alexa on smartphones. Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 are rated to deliver a 14-hour battery life with the charging case of 250mAh capacity. On a single charge, the earbuds can provide four hours of music playback.
