- A patent has been filed by Lenovo for truly wireless earbuds with a stem design
- These could be affordable TWS earbuds like the Lenovo HT20
Lenovo could be working on a new pair of truly wireless earbuds, as 91mobiles has discovered a patent at the State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China. While the listing doesn’t reveal the official moniker of the TWS earbuds, the patent images show off the complete design. The Lenovo TWS earbuds, as per the images, have an Apple AirPods-like design but with a flatter stem. Each earbuds has a charging pin and microphone at the bottom of the stem. The earbuds could have a touch sensor to change tracks as the stem seems too slim to offer a physical button.
The patent images only show us the design of the earbuds but not the charging case. So, there is no way of knowing whether these are premium or low-cost earbuds. That being said, Lenovo has so far launched a few affordable TWS earbuds, and it’s possible that we may see the patented design above come to life soon enough.
To recall, Lenovo HT10 Pro, HT20, HE18, and HD116 audio products were launched recently. These come with EQ technology that is said to offer ‘Pure Music’ and ‘Extra Bass’ modes that can be enabled with a press of a button. They also boast IPX5 rating for water and sweatproof. The Lenovo HT10 Pro truly wireless earbuds are claimed to offer up to 48 hours of music playback with the charging case. They connect via Bluetooth 5.0 and offer 20 meters range.
The Lenovo HT20 earbuds are promised to last 25 hours with the carry case, have an IPX5 rating for sweat and water-resistance. Similarly, the Lenovo HE18 wireless Bluetooth earphones offer up to 12 hours of music playback with 240 hours of standby. They carry support to connect with two devices at the same time. The Lenovo HD116 over the ear headphones support HSP/HFP/AVRCP/A2DP and 24 hours playing time. The Lenovo HT10 Pro, HT20 Pro, HE18, and HD116 are priced at Rs 4,499, Rs 3,799, Rs 1,999 and Rs 2,499, respectively.
