Poco is also entering the truly wireless earbuds space and while its existence is a confirmation, the name is still unknown. This is why Poco held a poll to decide on the name of its first TWS earbuds via Twitter polling system.
Poco gave four names in the poll – Poco Move Buds, Poco Klip Buds, Poco Pop Buds, and Poco Funkz. Out of these four, only two names appeared to be viable to make the cut. But the vote results have already come and they reflect the final name that Poco could possibly go for. The result shows a total of 21,416 votes were taken and Pop Buds lead the poll with 42.4% votes.
Hey POCO fans, couple of weeks ago we asked you which product we should bring next and you chose TWS (Earbuds). We're happy to announce that we're a step closer in making it a reality & we want your help in choosing a name for it. Vote and let's know what we should call it.— C Manmohan (@cmanmohan) May 18, 2020
So, from the results, it is clear Poco will name its first-ever TWS earbuds as Pop Buds. Poco considered some fancy naming for its first-ever TWS earbuds, likely to attract the younger userbase. The replies to this vote, however, reflect a rather simple and better name which is Poco Buds. But Poco may like to go with its polling results.
Moving on, the specifications and the features of the Poco truly wireless earbuds are unknown. But we may soon see them coming. However, the yet-to-come Poco TWS is said to be similar to the recently launched Xiaomi Mi AirDots 2 SE. These are the affordable version of Xiaomi’s AirPod-like true wireless headset. The AirDots 2 SE does not support the high definition codec LHDC, but they do offer AAC. The accessory supports Bluetooth 5.0 and offers 5 hours listening and the case adds 20 hours more to the battery life, and it can be charged n 1.5 hours using the USB-C cable. AirDots 2 SE comes with wear detection that automatically pauses music when you take them off and then resume it once you put them back in.
