I can't find any information about how Tapo is different from TP-Link.

The only official info I read is that Tapo is an off-shoot from TP-Link. 

 

My question is in terms of products, why have two brands?

Example, the smart plug.

On TP-Link side there's the HS100. On the Tapo side there's the P100.

 

Wouldn't this be confusing for customers?

My only guess is that TP-Link will migrate their smart home products under Tapo? surprise

I think tapo was an acquistion, which usually makes integration a problem.  More worrying is that it would be the end of kasa by making them orphans replaced by tapo...  it would be nice to hear from TP Link about their strategy.
