MySmartPrice claims to have new information on the upcoming AirPods 2.
One of its trusted sources said that the AirPods 2 will look similar to the current AirPods. However, Apple is said to be releasing the AirPods in black and white this year.
The AirPods 2 could have a grip coating similar to the the one used by Google for the Pixel smartphones. Battery life is rumored to be the same as the current generation. There would be a slight bump of about US$40 (S$54.39) for the AirPods.
Bloomberg reported in February last year that the AirPods would sport an upgraded wireless chip and allow users to activate Siri without tapping the earbuds.
Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo wrote in December 2018 that "an upgraded model with wireless charging support" would be released in Q1 2019 while an all-new design is set to launch in 2020. DigiTimes also claimed that the AirPods 2 will support health monitoring features.
