Back in the last week, Poco launched a Twitter poll asking fans to vote on the name of the brand’s first truly wireless earbuds. It wasn’t a hard dispute at all since the big majority of fans voted on the Poco Pop Buds option. For that reason, this will be the name of the company’s so-called hearables. Once again, this product may be just a rebranding over an existing Xiaomi product.
The Twitter Poll amassed around 21,000 votes, the winning option was ahead with 42.4% of the votes which represents around 9,000 people. The second best option was Poco Funkz with 27.9% or nearly 6,000 votes. The third option was Poco Move Buds with 23.9% or nearly 5,100 votes. The fourth and last option was Klip Bud’s moniker which got only 5.8% of the votes, which still means that around 1,200 people thought that was the best name.
Gizchina News of the week
According to reports, Poco’s new hearables won’t be something exclusive and unique. Apparently, they will be just rebranded Mi Air Dots 2 SE featuring the Poco logo. In China, these earphones are sold for over CNY 169. This could indicate that in India they’ll cost around INR 1,799 (~$24/€24). However, we’ll need to wait until the unveiling to have sure that Poco will adopt such a low-pricing strategy in India. The company has built its reputation with products that offer good value for money. So, let’s see how much these Poco Pop Buds will cost.
