Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported on Apple’s next-generation AirPods headset. And today, a source from The Elec has confirmed these information. Apple is gearing up to launch AirPods 3, or possibly AirPods Pro Lite.
The image is said to be of the AirPods 3 or the AirPods Pro Lite.
According to Kuo, the AirPods 3 / Pro Lite will have a more similar design to the AirPods Pro than the AirPods 2, but will have no earbud and also no active noise canceling. And it seems that should also be cheaper than the AirPods Pro model.
The internal motherboard of the AirPods Pro will be changed.
AirPods 3 / Pro Lite will have more changes on the inside than on the outside. The mouse-shaped board was replaced by a smaller square-shaped board, still featuring Apple’s H1 chip, but the active noise canceling components were removed.
Design has also changed slightly.
More internal space will also help Apple be able to increase the size of the battery inside the AirPods 3 / Pro Lite. This means that the new AirPods will have a more buffalo battery than the previous generation.
Sources of The Elec revealed that the selling price of the AirPods 3 / Pro Lite will be about 20% cheaper than the AirPods Pro. This means that the AirPods 3 / Pro Lite will cost around $ 199, which is $ 50 less than the AirPods Pro model and is comparable to the current AirPods 2.
Apple will likely launch AirPods 3 / Pro Lite around March to June 2021, because AirPods 2 were also launched in March last year.
