Oppo at its event in Malaysia unveiled a couple of products and also discussed its upcoming plans for the region. The Chinese tech company also announced that it will establish a hub center in Kuala Lumpur alongside showcasing some products that we may see getting unveiled in the near future.
One of them is Enco Free wireless earbuds that have a similar appearance to the Apple AirPods and Realme’s first Buds Air truly wireless earbuds.
Oppo grabbed the opportunity to tease the Enco Free before a wider announcement that is expected to happen soon. It is suspected that the all-new Enco Free earbuds are expected to launch on December 26 in China alongside the Reno 3 and the Reno 3 Pro.
These Oppo Enco Free wireless earbuds come with touch controls just like other earbuds. You can slide a finger on the left earbud to adjust the volume while the right earbud is for switching between tracks. The earbuds will be shipped with three silicone tips of different sizes, so users have the choice to use anyone pair of them for the best fit.
Just like others, Enco Free detects when you take it out or put it back on your ear. Thus it can pause and resume the playback.
The Enco Free has a 5-hour battery life that goes up to 25 hours with the charging case. The case charges via USB Type-C only. It takes 90 minutes to charge the earbuds and almost 2 hours to charge the case.
Oppo has announced that the Enco Free earbuds will be sold for 499 Malaysian Ringgit which is equivalent to $120 when it goes official in January 2020. The registrations are currently open in China ahead of the launch which is scheduled to happen next week.
