Huawei is all set to unveil its next-gen flagships Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro next month. Both these devices have appeared in leaks quite a few times giving us an idea of what to expect but as per a new leak, Huawei has at least one more product to showcase at the event. It is the Freebuds 2 Pro wireless headphones which have been shared by WinFuture.de's Roland Quandt along with renders.
As per renders, the Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro looks like an exact replica of Apple AirPods. The whole design of the wireless headphones itself and charging case are exactly similar to Apple's wireless charging case. These earphones will support Qi wireless charging standard for wireless charging via a charging pad. But most interestingly, it can also be charged wirelessly by placing the charging case on the Mate 20 Pro back.
In terms of features, the Freebuds 2 Pro will support Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity for getting paired with smartphones. There is support for Hi-Res Wireless Audio (HWA) protocol with a bitrate up to 560 Kbps. It is further said to offer up to three hours of audio playback while making of HWA. And yes, there will be integration with Google Assistant so that one can make use of voice commands to get things done.
Quandt further shared two more leaked images of phones said to be Huawei Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro. The two images show a device with bezel-less design, curved glass, and notch but it is hard to say if it is the Pro or standard variant.
As we said in the beginning, Huawei is all set to unveil the new flagship Mate 20 series at an event next month. We can expect a few more leaks in the meantime but we are not too far away from official details as well.
