Poco’s Affordable TWS Earbuds Take on Competitors
The Poco Pods enter the budget TWS segment in India that is currently dominated by brands like boAt, Noise, Boult, Realme, and Xiaomi’s own Redmi.
By pricing it attractively at Rs. 1,199, Poco aims to undercut competitors and offer superior value for money with the feature-loaded Poco Pods.
The recently launched Redmi Buds 4 Pro are the closest competitors at a slightly higher Rs. 1,599 price tag.
With robust battery life, fast charging, IP rating, and easy connectivity, the Poco Pods present an exciting option for budget-conscious buyers looking for their first TWS earbuds.
Poco’s aggressive pricing and feature-set for its maiden TWS earphones could disrupt the budget true wireless segment. The Poco Pods launch will be closely watched by audio brands and consumers alike.
Poco will be leveraging the Xiaomi ecosystem and its popularity among younger consumers to market these affordable earbuds. The performance and real-world usage will dictate if the Poco Pods live up to their promise when they launch on July 29th.
