While Huawei held a new product launch conference today and unveiled a range of eye-catching devices, many people are unaware of this because they believe Huawei is just a smartphone manufacturer. And because it has ‘paused,’ no other Huawei product is appealing to them.
Today, however, it launched the Huawei FreeBuds 4 wireless headset and the Huawei Smart Screen SE, both of which are high-end products capable of outperforming any competitor.
Huawei Smart Screen SE
The HUAWEI Smart Screen SE features a 55-inch/65-inch LED-backlit LCD display with a 4K (3840 x 2160 pixel) resolution, 16.7 million colours, a 92 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, and a refresh rate of 60Hz. This show has a 178° viewing angle, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and TÜV Rheinland low blue light emission certification.
This smart TV, unlike those on the market, is powered by a HiSiliicon Honghu SoC with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. HUAWEI Share, EMUI Desktop, HUAWEI Xiaoyi AI voice assistant, HUAWEI Smart Life software, HUAWEI HiLink Smart Home controls, messaging, video calls via a magnetically detachable 13MP webcam, and other features are supported by the HarmonyOS 2.0 operating system.
The TV supports dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, and NFC networking (Remote Control). It has 2 x HDM 2.0 (one of which is ARC compatible), 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x AV In, 1 x S/PDIF, 1 x RJ45 (Ethernet), and 1 x DTMB ports.
Huawei FreeBuds 4
The FreeBuds 4 have 14.3mm dynamic drivers and three microphones for picking up speech and ambient noise. Active noise cancellation can minimise ambient noise by up to 25 decibels. Each earbud has three levels of touch controls and weights just 4.1 grammes.
The FreeBuds 4 link via Bluetooth 5.2 and can connect to two devices at the same time. They also have a special clear voice mode for vloggers, which promises to pick up your voice better in noisy environments. There’s also a low latency mode that reduces audio latency to 90ms for crisp, accurate audio during gaming sessions.
The earphones have a battery life of 4 hours and the charging case has a battery life of up to 22 hours. Huawei claims that a fast 15-minute charge can provide up to 2.5 hours of playback. The case can be charged via USB-C or wirelessly with any Qi-compliant charger. The whole kit is splash immune to IPX4.
The FreeBuds 4 are available in white, silver, and red. The price is set at CNY 999 ($155/€126), and official sales will begin on June 6. Pricing and availability for international customers will be announced at a later date.
