From how it looks, the Freebuds Lite is identical to the Huawei Freebuds as I can’t see any physical difference between them. Both the case, that looks like the Samsung Galaxy Buds, and the earphones itself, which almost has the same appearance as the Apple AirPods, are made up of glossy polycarbonate material. However, it has an IPX4 splash resistance which is great for outdoor use.
The back part of the case houses the micro USB port and a button which serves as the Bluetooth pairing mechanism for mobile devices.
Since the Freebuds Lite case also serves as a power bank for the earphones, a notification light sits in front which tells the user if the battery percentage is still high enough (green) or if it is running low (red). It can also determine if the accessory is ready for Bluetooth pairing (blue) or not. Opening the case will reveal two magnetic holes with the shape of the earbuds where you can store the earpieces after use.
The earpiece themselves comes with a 55mAh battery capacity on each side and infrared sensors that can detect when it removed from the person’s ear. It also pauses the music player automatically, which is neat. Speaking of which, it adopts an AAC technology that improves transmission efficiency for a high resolution and more realistic sound.
At the back of the Freebuds Lite are built-in G-Sensors where users can tap to execute specific actions in their smartphones. Double-tapping the left earpiece will activate the voice assistant while doing it on the right piece will play or pause the music when you are wearing it. Note that you can also play music with the left bud removed from your ear. Lastly, answering or ending calls can be done by double-tapping either of the buds.
