Poco India confirmed back in April that it is working on its first-ever truly wireless earbuds. Later in May, it also finalized the name Poco Pop Buds after holding a poll on Twitter. But, the story couldn’t develop further because the company shared no other details on the same.
Fast forward to today, upon asking about the status of the Pop Buds from the company’s officials, the Marketing and Communications head replied it “might take longer.” The official also shared that they “haven’t been able to reach the level of audio tuning they have been looking to achieve.” While sharing this, he also revealed that the product is "not canned."
So, it is clear that the development is still under process and could take some time to be fully ready. We believe the design of the Poco Pop Buds might be ready already and the company is working on some internal changes so that the users could experience better features and performance.
As we mentioned earlier, there are no other details available on Poco’s first-ever TWS earbuds. Presumably, the Pop Buds may support Bluetooth 5.0 and low-latency for a seamless experience.
Also, expect longer battery life from Poco Pop Buds. The upcoming earbuds may put the existing Realme Buds Air in the competition. The new earbuds are said to be based on Xiaomi Mi AirDots 2 SE. But if Poco says that it is still working on its product then it might rather be focusing on enhancing things that already exist.
Poco develops affordable phones without compromising on quality. We believe it will continue to follow the same motto while it grows its product portfolio.
