After true wireless headphones, Huawei plans to launch its very first headphones, the Huawei FreeBuds Studio. The announcement is scheduled for October 22.
While Huawei is still in the panade in the field of smartphones, the Chinese manufacturer continues to diversify into all areas of new technologies. After launching smartwatches, laptops, or headphones true wireless, the group now plans to tackle the headphone market.
This Tuesday, Huawei sent an invitation to the press for an announcement that will take place on Thursday, October 22: the presentation of the Huawei FreeBuds Studio. If the firm does not disclose any additional information regarding the type of product, the visual in the background, as well as the name "FreeBuds" are strongly reminiscent of headphones or earphones.
A design already seen in a Huawei application
While Apple is about to launch its own headset, the AirPods Studio, Huawei could have used the same name for its own model of headphones. It must be said that Huawei has already released headphones true wireless, like the FreeBuds 3 or the FreeBuds Pro, but also earphones around the neck with the FreeLace, as well as connected speakers. However, the company had never launched a Bluetooth headset before.
If the clues left by the Chinese group are rather meager, however, this is not the first time that we have heard of a Huawei FreeBuds Studio headset. Indeed, on September 9, on the eve of the announcement of the FreeBuds Pro noise-canceling headphones, the GizmoChina site reported that a headset had been spotted within Huawei's AI Life application. Called FreeBuds Studio, this product would adopt a circum-aural format – with pads around the ears – and its design was thus discovered within Huawei's application dedicated to connected objects.
At this time, it is not yet clear what the characteristics of Huawei's headset will be. One can however expect, with a picture teasing and a dedicated event, that it will be a high-end model. The Huawei FreeBuds Studio could thus be a noise-canceling Bluetooth headset.
However, we will have to wait a little over a week to be able to discover Huawei's headphones.
