Poco, the Xiaomi sub-brand that rose to fame on the back of its Poco F1 device has been due for an audio-related launch, with the company stating that it might bring its Poco Pop Buds to India back in 2020.
A year later, that seems to be a promise that might just be held up, as certain reports hint at the Poco Pop Buds being a rebrand of a recently launched Redmi earbud.
For those of you unaware, Xiaomi recently unveiled the Redmi AirDots 3 Pro, in the country of China. The earbuds were recently listed on the Bluetooth SIG certification site, hinting at the chances of an intentional launch. Reports are suggesting that the device could be rebranded as the Redmi Buds 3 Pro or the Poco Pop Buds.
As mentioned earlier, Poco had confirmed that it was working on a pair of truly wireless earphones but that was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. We were all quite excited to see the company launch the product, as they were quite actively promoting the supposed moniker, but it got delayed to 2021.
Now, Xiaomi has listed the earbuds with the model number TWSEJ01ZM on SIG under three names Redmi AirDots 3 Pro, Redmi Buds 3 Pro and the Poco Pop Buds.

Redmi AirDots 3 is priced at Yuan 349 or Rs 3,973 with availability in China starting from June 11. Do note that Poco has not yet confirmed the existence of the Poco Pop Buds, so they may not end up launching in India, but, if they do, they will probably launch it as Poco Pop Buds in the country.
