Honor just announced it’s first truly wireless earbuds – the FlyPods and FlyPods Pro. These are nearly identical to Apple’s AirPods, even the charging case.
They have Bluetooth 5.0 support and even have IP54 waterproof rating. So you can work out with them and they’ll be all good. Earbuds can be used to answer calls, control media playback, and activate Honor’s YoYo voice assistant.
The earbuds have a 420mAh battery which should last three hours on a single charge. It can also last up to 20 hours with the charging case. It can charge via USB-C, or on a wireless charging pad.

These earbuds have “BoneID technology” which uses a combination of voice recognition and “bone sound pattern” recognition as biometric authentication to unlock your phone by voice. You can use them to make payments on WeChat and AliPay.
The price of FlyPods is ¥799 (about $115). Color options include teal and white. The FlyPods Pro cost ¥999 (about $143) and come in white and red. Both versions will go on sale November 6th on Vmall.
