Huawei Freebuds 3i truly wireless earbuds have leaked online, courtesy of Winfuture.de. The earbuds could launch alongside the Huawei Nova 7 and Nova 7 Pro on April 23rd, i.e tomorrow. The renders show the design of the Freebuds 3i is completely different from that of the Freebuds 3, which came with an open-pit design. The truly wireless earbuds feature silicone tips for a better seal and active noise control. The Huawei Freebuds 3i earbuds are said to arrive with a dedicated Bluetooth chip, presumably the Kirin A1, and will have support for fast-pairing with phones running EMUI 10.
The Huawei Freebuds 3i carry case is tipped to lack wireless charging support but will have the same 410mAh battery capacity as the Freebuds 3. The earbuds ship with a slightly larger 37mAh unit on each and is said to last up to 3.5 hours with ANC turned on. The earbuds will take 1-hour to charge fully and the carry case can juice them up three times on a single charge; the case has a USB Type-C port and takes 100 minutes to fully charge. The report claims the Huawei Freebuds 3i will weigh 5.5 grams each, while the case weighs 51 grams. Though we don’t have the pricing details, they are said to be more affordable than the Freebuds 3.
Separately, the Nova 7 and Nova 7 Pro are expected to come with Kirin 985 SoC, 5G connectivity, Android 10 OS, OLED display and an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. Both the phones are said to pack 4,000mAh battery with 40W fast-charging support, 8GB RAM, and up to 256GB internal storage. While the vanilla Nova 7 has a single-punch hole, the latter is said to come with dual-punch hole cameras. We should know more details tomorrow.
