Detel is already familiar to many Indian customers because of its feature phones and TVs, but now the company is making its first foray into the Indian-made Bluetooth speaker market. This week, Detel has launched the Posh Bluetooth Speaker, which aims to do what other products do but for a fraction of the price.
Over the years, Detel has become renowned for producing good hardware in the ultra-affordable bracket. Indeed, the company’s mantra since forming in 1991 has been about delivering quality at competitive pricing. In the TV and mobile markets, this strategy has been successful. Detel launched India’s most affordable feature phone in 2017, the Rs 400 D1 handset.
So, does the Posh Bluetooth Speaker match the company’s past devices? At first glance, the signs are good thanks to the speaker’s solid specs and excellent price. Detel has started selling the Posh in India at just Rs 1,999 through Flipkart, Amazon, and its own website.
In a world where manufacturers are trying to make smart speakers look nice in a living space, Detel has succeeded thanks to the wooden construction of the Posh. It is designed to sit nicely in a living room, bedroom, or on a kitchen counter.
Yogesh Bhatia, MD for Detel describes the Posh as a combination of design and feature quality:
“Our speakers have always reflected the unique style of our listeners. Its fine design, great audio quality, powerful battery and a host of other features make Posh a must have. After receiving an overwhelming response for the previous range from our customers, we are all geared up to sway the market with the new speaker.”
It is also packing plenty of interesting features under the hood too. For example, the Posh Bluetooth Speaker will deliver a crisp and dynamic audio experience thanks to the distortion of 0.5% (AT1.0khz 2w). It also features tools such as Micro SD and USB support, a loud speaker, and a Bluetooth range of 10 meters.
Among the Posh’s noteworthy additions is a DC5V 2A Power Speaker, which will deliver a wall of sound audio experience. Detel has also ensured the battery is amongst the best in class. Charging fully in 3-4 hours, the 3.7v-2000mAh lithium battery can deliver 5 hours of continuous playback at the normal sound.
The Detel Posh Bluetooth smart speaker is available now from Amazon, Flipkart, and Detel’s online store. Below are the full device specifications:
