Just yesterday, we discovered FCC filings for a brand new Anker PowerWave wireless charging pad that talked about an unannounced second technology of Echo Buds with wireless charging proper in the identify. That charger has since leaked in full in a Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) itemizing noticed by GizmoChina.
The now-pulled WPC itemizing included the render of the product at the prime of this put up that provides us just a few hints about what the Echo Buds’ case would possibly appear like and a few of the options of the pad. The charger seems to have an rectangular indentation for the Echo Buds’ wireless charging case to relaxation in, indicating the case could have a a lot completely different form than extra rectangular one used with the authentic Echo Buds. (We noticed an analogous rectangular form in a diagram of the pad included with the FCC filings.)
The charger additionally seems to be to have completely different charging indicators for the case and the earbuds, which could possibly be a helpful strategy to know at a look in case your Echo Buds are totally charged however the case isn’t, for instance. There’s additionally a charging gentle labelled “Phone,” which can presumably gentle up whenever you place a telephone on the pad.
It’s unclear when this charging pad would possibly come out, however the incontrovertible fact that it appeared each on the WPC and in FCC filings hints that it could possibly be launched quickly. And if this charging pad for a brand new set of Echo Buds is seemingly on the means, that implies the headphones themselves could possibly be introduced imminently as effectively.
