    Xiaomi is set to launch a new product on March 16. Ahead of the official release, the company has begun creating hype through teasers. The posts hint at a new battery-focused device, either a powerbank or a wireless charger.

    "One less wire to deal with. Mi fans, it's time to #CutTheCord. All the power you need without any hassle. Guess what this is," read the tweet accompanies a short clip showing charging indicator.

    In another tweet, Xiaomi gave a glimpse of the device without revealing much though. The teaser promised a "sleek and wire-free" device.
