- POCO true wireless in-ears will launch in India soon
- It will mark the brand’s entry in the wearables segment
- POCO TWS earphones will likely take on the Realme Buds Air
POCO India has officially confirmed that it is working on true wireless earbuds and they will be launching in India very soon. This announcement comes after POCO general manager C Manmohan on Twitter recently asked fans which tech product apart from smartphones should the brand launch next and the truly wireless earbuds got a majority of votes in the poll. This marks the company’s foray into the wearable segment and will take on the Realme Buds Air in the affordable TWS earphones category. Unfortunately, POCO hasn’t divulged into details regarding the wireless earbuds at the moment.
The POCO truly wireless earbuds should be priced aggressively like with its smartphones. They should come with features like Bluetooth 5.0, an instant connect with smartphones, low-latency and even a gaming mode, most of which are expected from a 2020 TWS product. While there are numerous options under the Rs 5,000-Rs 7,000 price segment, the POCO earbuds should take on the Realme Buds Air that is available at Rs 3,999.
Separately, POCO had also confirmed to be working on the POCO F2 flagship and it may launch before the end of this year. The brand’s GM had also clarified that it isn’t going to be a Redmi K30 Pro rebrand and instead, will be an original model. Considering the vanilla Redmi K30 was launched as POCO X2 in India, it was widely believed the same might repeat in terms of POCO F2 as well. The POCO F2 should obviously ship with Snapdragon 865 SoC and gaming-centric features will be of primary focus.
