In early June, Huawei announced a new Bluetooth speaker called the FreeGO Portable Bluetooth Speaker. The speaker falls under its Free line of audio products which includes FreeBuds TWS earbuds and the FreeLace wireless earphones.
The FreeGO Portable Bluetooth Speaker was supposed to go on sale last month but is yet to be available. A leaker has revealed that the speaker will soon be available for purchase. The info comes from the Chinese blogger, Changan Digital King, and he said in a Weibo post that the new Bluetooth speaker is on its way.
There are lots of Bluetooth speakers on the market and one of the ways to stand out is with the design. Huawei nails the design of the FreeGO Portable Bluetooth Speaker. Huawei says the design inspiration comes from the vinyl player. To me, it looks more like a really fancy portable CD player. The speaker which comes in Obsidian Black and Silver is pretty compact, measuring 120mm in diameter and having a thickness of 31mm.
The FreeGO Portable Bluetooth Speaker has a knob on the side that not only works for volume control but can be pushed to accept, reject, and end calls. The knob can also be used to mute the microphone, pause and resume playback, and also call up the voice assistant.
The portable speaker has two driver units. There is one for high frequencies which has a high-end silk diaphragm and there is another for low frequencies whose diaphragm is made of aluminum alloy. Huawei says the speaker is professionally tuned, and with DRC dynamic compression algorithm and vocal EQ adjustment, it outputs loud and clear sounds.
The FreeGO Portable Bluetooth Speaker has NFC for one-touch pairing. It also has a 360° Omni-directional dual microphones with a range of 3 meters for picking up your voice during calls. It also uses an adaptive echo suppression algorithm to improve call quality.
The Bluetooth 5.0 speaker has an 11.25 Wh battery and supports 9V 2A and 5V 2A fast charging via USB-C. The spec sheet says a 15-minute charge will provide 2 hours of listening time. The speaker will ship with a USB-C to USB-A cable included in the box. There is still no info on the price of the speaker.
