Simply yesterday, we found FCC filings for a brand new Anker PowerWave wi-fi charging pad that talked about an unannounced second technology of Echo Buds with wi-fi charging proper within the title. That charger has since leaked in full in a Wi-fi Energy Consortium (WPC) itemizing spotted by GizmoChina.
The now-pulled WPC listing included the render of the product on the high of this put up that provides us just a few hints about what the Echo Buds’ case may appear to be and a number of the options of the pad. The charger seems to have an rectangular indentation for the Echo Buds’ wi-fi charging case to relaxation in, indicating the case can have a a lot completely different form than extra rectangular one used with the original Echo Buds. (We noticed an analogous rectangular form in a diagram of the pad included with the FCC filings.)
The charger additionally seems to have completely different charging indicators for the case and the earbuds, which may very well be a helpful solution 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 if you place a cellphone on the pad.
It’s unclear when this charging pad may come out, however the truth that it appeared each on the WPC and in FCC filings hints that it may very well be launched quickly. And if this charging pad for a brand new set of Echo Buds is seemingly on the way in which, that implies the headphones themselves may very well be introduced imminently as effectively.
