Vivo TWS Neo true wireless earphones are set to be launched in India soon, the Chinese firm announced on social media today. Vivo had launched its true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones in its domestic market back in June. The earbuds feature an Apple AirPods-like design and is fitted with 14.2mm dynamic drivers. Earlier today, the company also announced that it will be launching the Vivo X50 and Vivo X50 Pro phones in India on July 16. It can be speculated that the new earphones may also be launched on the same day.
Vivo India took to Twitter to tease the launch of its TWS Neo earphones. Although an official date wasn't revealed, Vivo said that the headset will feature 14.2mm moving coils, which are expected to make the most out of the brand's own DeepX Stereo Sound effects.
In another tweet, Vivo also announced the launch of its X50 series of phones, namely the Vivo X50 and the Vivo X50 Pro, in India this Thursday (July 16) at 12pm (noon). Given the similar timings of the posts, it can be expected that the Vivo TWS Neo may also be launched alongside the new phones.
Upon its launch in China, the Vivo TWS Neo were priced at CNY 499 (roughly Rs. 5,300). With designs similar to that of Apple AirPods, the TWS Neo will be made available in two colours – Starry Blue and Moonlight White.
Most high-end TWS earphones come with 14.2mm dynamic drivers and the Vivo TWS Neo is no different. The moving drivers are expected to make the best use of Vivo's in-house DeepX Stereo Sound effects, an audio enhancement feature which is presently available in select Vivo phones.
Apart from Bluetooth 5.2 support, Vivo TWS Neo also has several useful attributes, including Google Assistant compatibility and a “Find My TWS Neo” device locator feature. In terms of battery life, the earphones can operate up to 4.5 hours (with AAC encoding and 50 percent volume) and up to 2.9 hours (with apt Adaptive encoding and 50 percent volume). When used with the charging case, the battery is expected to last a little over 22 hours.
