After Apple started making the wireless Airpods by omitting the headphone jack, Apple made a huge profit by selling its Airpods and launching various versions of it in the past few years. A problem created by a company to support the market of another product, making this to be a great market strategy.
Following this, various brands an even the other smartphone manufacturers have copied the Cupertino giant to make cheaper wireless earbuds. There are a lot of them available outside India, but in 2019 we saw many brands like Sony, JBL, Blaupunkt, boAt, Noise, Lenovo, Syska, Samsung, Realme and many others.
To join them, Vivo will be launching its previously-launched truly wireless earbuds or Vivo TWS earphones in India. In fact, the report even tells that the earphones might be launching alongside the Vivo V19 by March 2020.
A report from 91mobiles says that Vivo will soon bring its TWS earphone to retail and its sources have also reportedly shared a live image of the earphone’s box and the charging case with 91mobiles.
As seen in the image this will be Vivo’s first wireless audio device in the country and it looks good. The Vivo TWS earphones come with some interesting specs, sporting 14mm drivers along with support for Qualcomm aptX, and AAC decoding technology. It features Qualcomm QCC5126 wireless chip with dual-core CPU.
Vivo even claims to provide 4 hours of battery life after having charged once for the earphones which you can extend by charging it with the charging case which itself gives 24 hours battery backup. Being IP54 rated the Vivo TWS can easily withstand sweat, dust, exposure to light rain and maybe swimming as well.
The wireless earphones feature dual-channel transmission that reduces the latency by up to 44% and power consumption by up to 30%. The company claims the earphone has a minimum latency of 180ms along with noise cancellation for calls.
Other features include support for payments, WeChat broadcasts, and real-time translation but we aren’t sure if that would be present in the Indian variant. In China, the Vivo TWS earphones cost ￥999 (around ₹10,000) and it will be interesting to see how they price the earphones in a budget-centric country like India.
