Apple is poised to launch it’s third generation AirPods 3 in the near future. Reports from the DigiTimes claims that Apple is set to launch next generation AirPods by the end of this year with amazing new feature. Report mentions very less about all the features of the upcoming AirPod but it certainly mention that it will be equipped with inbuilt noise cancellation feature. This is a strategic move by Apple company to beat its major rivals in wireless earphones segment, specifically Samsung which has come up with its brand new Galaxy Buds & previous Gear IconX hearables.
According to the industry sources, two major firms participating in the manufacturing of these innovative wireless earphones are Taiwan’s Inventec and China-based Luxshare Precision. These two companies will contribute majorly in building of Apple’s innovative third generation AirPods which includes noise cancellation function. Though report doesn’t mention in details about the features, but at present it gives hint about the design and other crucial aspects.
Although noise cancellation is not a completely new technology but it poses a challenge of enhanced power consumption and it will be interesting to see how Apple deal with it. Further, from the report we can also know that the upcoming masterpiece will be introduced with redesign and improved grip for comfortable fitting around the ears. Other upgrades to the third generation AirPods include enhanced sound quality and powerful wireless charging infrastructure.
In June 2018, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also reported about Apple’s third generation earphones but it doesn’t mentioned about the exact timeline of launching. If all the things happens according to the plan then we can expect the premium pair of earphones by the end of 2019. In the market, second generation Airpods 2 is doing excellent job and it also received good reviews from tech experts so we can expect more from upcoming Apple hearables.
