Ever since smartphones have started coming without a 3.5mm audio jack, there has been a huge demand for wireless earphones, especially for the truly wireless ones. Many major smartphone manufacturers have launched their own truly wireless earphones, including Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, Realme, Nokia, Lenovo, and Sony. However, there are still a few brands that haven’t launched truly wireless earphones, and POCO is one among them. And that is about to change as POCO India has just announced that the brand will soon be launching truly wireless earphones in the Indian market.
POCO Will Soon Launch TWS Earphones
POCO’s General Manager, C Manmohan, had conducted a poll on Twitter a few days ago, asking people which accessory would they like to see from POCO next. The poll options included truly wireless earphones, headphones, fitness band/smartwatch, and a gamepad. Among the four products, the truly wireless earphones received the highest number of votes. And that led POCO to announce that the brand has started working on truly wireless earphones and that these TWS earphones would be coming to the Indian market.
Here's the big news, POCO fans!
In the recently concluded poll by our GM @cmanmohan, the 'True wireless in-ears' got the highest vote share. Today, we want to confirm that it is in the works and will be coming to India.

Considering that POCO is known for offering products with a high VFM factor, the upcoming truly wireless earphones from the brand could be priced competitively and they could be extremely affordable. If I had to guess, I’d say the upcoming TWS earphones from the brand could cost around INR 4,000. Expect these TWS earphones from POCO to feature Bluetooth v5.0 connectivity and USB Type-C port. If the brand really wants to crack the game, it will have to offer technologies like aptX and AAC codecs, an optical sensor for wear detection, a multi-mic setup, and long battery life in its upcoming TWS earphones.
