POCO created quite a stir in 2018 with its flagship smartphone called the POCO F1, and then went off the launch grid for a couple of years. The brand recently made a comeback with the launch of the mid-range POCO X2 (first impressions) and is rumoured to be working on its much-anticipated flagship, the POCO F2. While the POCO F2 is still in works, the brand has gone ahead and announced it is working on its first non-smartphone category product. During a recently hosted POCO virtual fan meet, the company announced that it will be foraying into the audio accessories segment with truly wireless (TWS) earphones.
