Saregama has launched the successor to the Carvaan Go, which made its debut in 2019. The latest Carvaan Go 2.0 comes with a price label of Rs 4,590 in India, and you can buy it via Saregama’s official e-store. The company is selling the device in four color options – Salsa Red, Blooming Blue, Classic Black, and Emerald Green. The brand will also give a 6-months of warranty with the device. It comes pre-loaded with 3000 Retro Hindi Songs, as per the company.
Saregama Carvaan Go 2.0 features two speakers of 1W output each. The brand claims that the device can give up to 7 hours of battery life. It offers support for radio connectivity, and a microSD card up to 32GB. The new Carvaan Go weighs about 141 grams and features a metal body. The device supports the ‘Saregama Carvaan’ app, which one will find in both the Google Play Store and App Store. One can even connect the latest Carvaan Go with Bluetooth speaker or via Aux and play out from your Home or Car speakers.
Unlike the Saregama Carvaan 2.0, which brought new features such as Wi-Fi connectivity and Internet-based content, the Saregama Carvaan Go 2.0 has smaller, incremental updates over its predecessor, the Carvaan Go.
The speaker output has also been increased from a single 1W speaker to two speakers of 1W output each. The changes are largely based on feedback from users and experts, according to Saregama.
Apart from the new device, Saregama has also announced the launch of its new content creator platform for individual contributors. The company is now inviting contributors to provide content such as podcasts or fixed-format shows to be streamed on the Internet-enabled Carvaan 2.0 speaker. Content can be anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes in a variety of topics, and the content will be subject to filters and curation by Saregama.
Separately, last month, Saregama launched Carvaan-branded earphones in India. The Carvaan GX01 earphones come with a price label of Rs 1,599 in India and are available for purchase via the company’s Saregama website.
