Huawei hints at an update to the FreeBuds coming at IFA

George, 31 August 2019

Huawei's Mate 30 lineup isn't going official until later in September, but the company's still coming to IFA next week. Among the things the Chinese maker is bringing there is a new Kirin chipset, but that's not all - apparently, a new pair of wireless earbuds is on the way unless we're totally misinterpreting this short teaser below.

What we making out of it is that the new earbuds will have a dedicated Kirin chip inside each of them, something like Apple's proprietary W1 solution for the latest AirPods. The caption that goes with the video points in that direction too - "New Kirin technology will connect you to a whole new audio experience." So we're expecting easier and faster pairing, no latency, and quality sound.

And then, the other new bit is potentially a new carrying and charging case if the black circular shape in the video is indeed that. The latest Huawei FreeBuds 2 Pro have a boxier case, while the FreeBuds Lite go in their case lying down, as opposed to standing up.

We'll know more on September 6, when this new Kirin technology will be unveiled. Stay tuned.
