“Patent images reveal the Lenovo truly earbuds have in-ear style design and silicone ear-tips”
Lenovo seems to be working on a new pair of truly wireless earbuds as it had filed a design patent at the State Intellectual Property Office of the People’s Republic of China, 91mobiles has discovered. The earbuds have an in-ear style design with silicone ear tips. The ear-tips connect to a rather flat square-shaped body that could be touch-sensitive, allowing you to play/pause, skip track, change volume, take calls and much more. A coloured render of the earbuds found in the patent show a flower-shaped design on the surface of the TWS earbuds.

As you can see from the renders above, the square-shaped earbuds come in a square-shaped charging case, which features a USB Type-C port for charging. There are two cavities in the case to rest the earbuds and charging pins on the side for the earbuds to charge up while in the case. Since these are patent images, there’s no way to tell if Lenovo will ever launch such a design commercially.
