Apple’s upcoming Powerbeats 4 were spotted in sketches late last month giving us a vague idea of what they will look like. Today, the first set of press renders for the unannounced wireless earbuds give us a much clearer look at their design and colorways.
The fourth iteration in the Powerbeats lineup looks identical to last year’s Powerbeats Pro but with a physical wire connecting the two earbuds. The right one features a volume rocker while the left one appears to house the power/voice assistant button.
According to rumors, the new version will bring Apple’s H1 sound chip, up to 15-hour battery life and an improved more durable design. Another new feature will be the faster-charging speeds which will bring 60 minutes of playback time from a 5-minute charge. It remains to be seen if Apple will bring a Type-C connector for charging this time around.
The Powerbeats 4 will come in white, black and red colors. There is still no word on pricing but given that the Powerbeats 3 retailed for $200, we should expect a similar MSRP for their successor.
