POCO last year announced that it will soon unveil new products in the category of smartphone accessories. Of course, one of these products includes the audio segment. The company is working on a new product for the trendy true wireless stereo headphones called POCO Pop Buds. Last month, the POCO Pop Buds appeared on the Bluetooth SIG list, revealing that it was only a renowned Redmi AirDots 3 Pro. Now, the POCO wireless headphones have appeared on the BIS certification website, hinting at an imminent launch. The certification listing reveals that future POCO Neckband headphones will carry the model number LYXQEJ05WM. Apparently this product is another from POCO rebadges, in other words, a white label product.
The Bureau of Indian Standards has revealed that the upcoming POCO Wireless Neckband will carry the model number LYXQEJ05WM. The Mi Neckband Earphones Pro, launched earlier this year in the country, also carry the same model number. This further confirms our belief that this is another of the renowned POCO products. We are used to seeing this happen with products that are not available in India. However, it is quite curious to see POCO bring back a product already available under the Mi brand. The question is whether there will be another one.
The POCO Wireless Neck Strap is a renowned Mi Bluetooth neck strap
The Mi Bluetooth Neckband Pro earphones contain 10mm woofer speakers and support dual noise cancellation including ANC and ENC. Active noise cancellation on neckband earphones can reduce surrounding noise by up to 25dB. It also has a 125ms low latency audio mode. The Mi Bluetooth Neckband Pro is powered by a 150mAh Li-ion polymer battery that provides 20 hours of battery life on a single charge. It also has a micro-USB port for charging. In addition, there is an IPX5 rating which makes it splash and sweat resistant. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 for connectivity and weighs just 36 grams.
The Mi Bluetooth Neckband Pro retails in black and blue, and is priced at INR 1,799 nationwide. Now the question is, when will the company unveil this product? Well, we’ve got a pretty good idea of when. POCO is preparing to launch a duo of new smartphones. These devices, also renamed existing Redmi smartphones, are the POCO X3 GT and POCO F3 GT. The latter was recently certified by BIS, which brings it a few inches from an exit. The device will launch in the third quarter of 2021, which begins as early as next month.
