HTC is seemingly joining the ever-growing truly wireless earbuds market with its upcoming U Ear earbuds. The accessory has been spotted on FCC by a tipster who goes by the name Abhishek Yadav.
As apparent from the images available on the document on FCC, the earbuds look similar to the first-gen Apple AirPods, though there are a couple of minor differences. The main differentiating factor is the charging pins which are located on the stem.
As further reported by FoneArena, the HTC U Ear earbuds do not have any silicone ear tips that are present on some of the latest wireless earbuds like the Oppo Enco Free. The HTC U Ear earbuds are not expected to come with active noise cancellation, but the environmental noise cancellation.
The images also show the square charging case that features the USB Type-C port. The images show the earbuds and its respective case in black color only, though expect more colors to join. There are no other details available on the FCC but expect more to hear soon.
Currently, we can’t tell when HTC decides to launch its first-ever truly wireless earbuds on the market. FCC listings hint at imminent launches and so we expect the same to come as early as possible. It is likely that HTC plans to launch the U Ear earbuds in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, HTC reportedly also has plans to launch its first 5G smartphone in 2020, despite its shrinking mobile business. So, it is possible that we may see both of these unannounced products getting launched at the same time. Well, let’s have more patience as there is definitely more to come.
