The Xiaomi’s spin-off-brand Poco is all set to foray into the audio department with the launch of TWS earbuds in India. The company is going to launch POCO Pop Buds in the country. The company hosted a poll on its social media accounts to choose a name for its first truly wireless earphones. The company selling the name has been chosen by the Poco fans through the poll. The earbuds are expected to arrive in the country alongside the Poco F2 Pro smartphone.
In a Twitter poll, Poco Pop Buds got the highest share of votes which helped the company to decide the name of the upcoming product. The open poll consisted of four exciting names POCO Move Buds, Klip Buds, Pop Buds to POCO Funkz. The Poco fans were asked to choose a name for its TWS earbuds and 42.4 percent of the audience voted for the Poco Pop Buds out of a total 21,416 votes thereby confirming the name of the upcoming product.
To add to this engagement, C Manmohan, General Manager, POCO India said, “Hey POCO fans, a few weeks back, 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 and want your help in choosing a name for it. Vote and let’s know what we should call it.”

Until now the earbuds are still under development and the company shares no further information with regard to the earbuds specification and how long it would take to arrive in the market. In April last month, the company announced that it is working on its TWS earphones while confirming that these will arrive in India first.
The company stated that “The Indian wearables market registered a growth of 168.3% last year. With ear-worn devices finding a huge appeal among consumers, rapid advancement in technologies will only fuel this growth going ahead. In line with this, POCO is all set to add its take on TWS audio to the POCO family.”
