Huawei Mate 20 Pro to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack

Huawei's new Freebuds might come with this ingenious feature

New information points to Huawei also releasing some new wireless earbuds in conjunction with the Mate 20.

Notably, it appears that you will be able to wirelessly charge the Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro on the back of your Huawei Mate 20.

Huawei's upcoming Mate 20 smartphone, in combination with the company's upcoming wireless earbuds, the FreeBuds 2 Pro, will have a clever feature that will provide some extra listening time in desperate situations.

No, the wireless charging will be for the case itself; it can be charged via USB-C, through Qi wireless charging, and in a remarkable move, from the Mate 20 - wirelessly - too. In addition to similarities in the design, the leaked renders and images hinted at a new functionality that Huawei may add to the Freebuds 2 Pro. Marketing materials for the Mate 20 and Freebuds 2 Pro say that you can also use the phone as a charging pad.

Pricing for the Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro is expected to be in the $175 range.

Some other differences between the regular Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro include the fingerprint readers the devices will feature, as the base model opts for a traditional sensor, while the Pro version will sport an in-display reader. Wireless charging will be a bit slower, but still, a great option for when you're on the go.

That could be a game-changing disruption that could genuinely shake up the mobile industry, and would nearly certainly see the Mate 20 or Mate 20 Pro slide effortlessly into our prestigious best smartphones guide.

The Huawei Mate 20 Lite will start shipping from 5 October and customers can pre-order the device from today.
