German blog WinFuture.de on Monday shared what it says are “official” marketing photos of the much-rumored Powerbeats4 earphones. The photos show the new earphones as being available in white, black, and red color options.
A recent FCC filing from Apple shows the Powerbeats4 are expected to offer a more curved design, with the same angled in-ear fit and wraparound hooks as the Powerbeats Pro. While the new earbuds will still have a connecting cable, it will be repositioned to below the bottom of each hook.
The WinFuture.de report claims the Powerbeats4 headphones will boast the same H1 chip as found in the Powerbeats Pro, which should allow for hands-free “Hey Siri” support, longer talk time, up to 30% lower gaming latency, and more.
The Powerbeat 4 is expected to offer the same sound quality as the Powerbeats Pro model, 15 hours of battery life, and Lightning cable-based charging capabilities. Pricing has not been announced.
Apple recently received FCC approval for the Powerbeats4 last month, so the new earphones could be announced sometime soon. However, the release of the new earphones could be delayed by the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, so stay tuned.
