Huawei FreeBuds 4i True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earphones have launched in China as successors to the FeeeBuds 3i.

The TWS earphones are offered in three colour options and boast of impressive features like active noise reduction, 10 hours of playback, touch controls, and more. The Huawei FreeBuds 4i are lightweight and have an ergonomic design, however, there doesn't seem to be any IP rating on these.
The FreeBuds 4i from Huawei are priced at CNY 499 (roughly Rs. 5,600) and come in Carbon Crystal Black, Ceramic White, and Honey Red colour options. They are currently up for pre-booking on VMall and will start shipping from March 8.
