Later it was revealed that 38.2 percent of the poll went in favor of the truly wireless earbuds. Now, the brand has confirmed that a pair of TWS earbuds are in the pipeline. More information on the earbuds is not available yet. However, we expect the buds to be affordable ones priced maybe around the Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000 mark. The earbuds will target the budget TWS market in India. It will compete against competitors including the Realme Buds Air, the Lenovo HT10 Pro and more.

In other news, C. Manmohan also recently revealed that the recently launched Redmi K30 Pro will not be launched in India as the Poco F2. This was a much-anticipated move since the Redmi K30 was rebranded as the Poco X2 in India. He also noted that the F2 will not be priced around the Rs 20,000 mark. However, the brand did not completely deny the possibility of the phone coming to India. Perhaps we could see it as the Poco X2 Pro later.
