Mi Soundbar 2.0 and Mi Treadmill have received Bluetooth SIG certifications. The listing reveals the former has the product name “2.1 Soundbar” and model number MDZ-35-DA. This is similar to the Redmi Soundbar 2.0 that received a separate certification back in March. There is a possibility that both products could be closely related. Surprisingly, the soundbar ships with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, instead of the more advanced Bluetooth 5.0 wireless tech. The products should launch in China first and then gradually move to other markets, including India.

Apart from Mi Soundbar 2.0, the Bluetooth SIG also certified the Mi Treadmill that has model number MJPBJ01KST. The description reads that it has a foldable design and should connect via Bluetooth 4.2. It could connect to a smartphone and sync the exercise sessions to Mi Fit app. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Mi Treadmill or the Mi Soundbar 2 at the moment, but since they bagged the certifications, the launch could be right around the corner.
