Update | Xiaomi Buds 4 Pro launch with Bluetooth 5.3, LHDC 4.0 support and powerful noise-cancelling features
Update: Xiaomi has now formally unveiled the Buds 4 Pro alongside the new Mix Fold 2 flagship foldable smartphone. Their new 48dB spec has thus been officially confirmed, and applies to 3-mic, AI-enhanced ANC. The feature does cut into the earbuds' 9 hours of battery life, though.
Then again, their case - which, with its new "capsule" design, is intended to offer easier day-to-day Bud 4 Pro deployment - is rated to keep its contents going for a maximum of 38 hours. As for the Buds themselves, their predictable form-factor does incorporate novel pressure-responsive controls to switch between their ANC and Transparency modes.
The Buds 4 Pro have started at 999 yuan (~US$150), and can be pre-ordered from now, albeit from Chinese stores only.
Original Article: Xiaomi has just announced that its Mix Fold 2 is indeed coming for the Samsung Galaxy Fold4, in terms of launch window if nothing else. Now, the OEM has revealed that the second-gen flexible phablet will take the stage alongside a pair of TWS earbuds that might match it in terms of price-tier.
The Buds 4 Pro have also been teased overtly with a video clip that makes them look like True Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones 3 Pro successors in earnest, with a stemmed design very like that of the OnePlus Buds Pro. They and their new charging case have been imbued with a two-tone design applied to their new gold colorway as well as a black alternative.
Xiaomi also now touts the 4 Pros in terms of their "intelligent dynamic noise reduction" rated for an impressive 48 decibels (dB) of sound isolation. The OEM has not confirmed that this spec will be delivered on a truly active basis, however, although it is more clear that the Buds will be "independent spatial audio" earphones. Their price may remain a mystery until their slot during the bumper product event, though.
