Freebuds 2 Pro, a new pair of wireless earphones by Huawei has leaked out on the internet. According to the renders of the earphones, it seems to be a copy of Apple AirPods while competing with the Apple offering in the market. In addition to similarities in the design, the leaked renders and images hinted at a new functionality that Huawei may add to the Freebuds 2 Pro. Looking closely at the renders, it is likely that the company had added wireless charging to the case of the earphones that can be charged with the help of a Huawei Mate 20 Pro device.

According to a report by German website WinFuture.de, leaker Roland Quandt revealed the pair of earphones with what appears to be official marketing renders. The report also noted that if Huawei manages to ship the earphones that can be charged with the help of their flagship smartphone, this will be the first in the industry even beating Apple to this technology. The renders also revealed that it is likely that the Freebuds 2 Pro will be available in two colors, the usual white color, and a black color variant.

In addition to Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro, Quandt also shared real-world images of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

These images indicated thin bezels along with that infamous notch and a dual-curved display which is similar to what we have seen in the Samsung Galaxy Edge devices.

He pointed out that it was unclear if the images were of the Mate 20 Pro or the Mate 20. These leaks come almost a month before the scheduled launch of the Mate 20 lineup along with the Freebuds 2 Pro on October 16, 2018, in London.
