PTron previously entered the smart glasses market with the launch of PTron Viki Bluetooth Headset Sunglasses in 2017. The upcoming Smart Glasses are expected to have advanced technology and a better appearance, surpassing the functionalities of their predecessor.
In the smart glasses market, pTron will be competing against bigger names like Ambrane, Titan and Noise. Despite this, pTron’s Smart Glasses priced at Rs 1,499, are significantly cheaper than its competitors, making it the most affordable option when it is launched.
Khwaja shared his perspective on the current status of Indian audio accessory brands and their success in selling TWS earbuds. He credits this success to the Indian brands’ expertise in customizing audio products to cater to local consumers’ preferences. He said, “In contrast, global companies like Oppo and Samsung face difficulty in this area since they have limited control over the manufacturing of individual components.”
pTron has been operating in India since 2015 and is known for launching affordable audio products like TWS, Neckbands, and smartwatches.
