Last year, Huawei announced the FreeLace Bluetooth Headset. The pair of wireless earphones received positive reviews with most users praising its battery life and sound quality. Now, it appears Huawei is about to launch a pro version.
A Weibo user that goes by @看山的叔叔, the same person that leaked the Huawei TalkBand B6 before it launched, has shared photos of the retail box of the Huawei FreeLace Pro Bluetooth Headset.
The images show the headset has redesigned earbuds with ear hooks that should help them stay in place better than the standard version. They also show that Huawei is keeping the HiPair Plug and Connect and Charge feature that allows users to easily pair the headset to their (supported) phone by simply plugging its USB-C end into their device. The feature also allows users to charge the headset easily using their phones.
The retail box says the Freelace Pro Bluetooth Headset will have a battery life of 24 hours. That is a significant upgrade compared to last year’s model that has an already impressive battery life of 18 hours. The Pro model should support fast charging too.
The box also reveals the drivers of the FreeLace Pro are now larger at 14.2mm (the FreeLace has 9.2mm driver units). It also has dual microphones for noise reduction, an in-line remote, and HD call support. The box also shows the earbuds have a sort of control built-in though we are not sure if it is touch or a push button.
Huawei should announce the FreeLace Pro Bluetooth Headset soon. The source says it should be priced at around ¥799 (~$115) which is not far off from the €99 (~$117) launch price of the standard edition, though it is currently sold for ¥399 (~57) on Vmall, so you may want to check it out.
