Unreleased Powerbeats Pro get FCC approval
It has been widely reported that Apple is gearing up to release new Powerbeats headphones, with the discovery of “Powerbeats 4” references hidden within code back at the end of 2019. This new rumoured model is said to support the “Hey Siri” feature and have a H1 chip, similar to the latest Powerbeats Pro and latest-generation AirPods models.
Products have to be approved by the FCC before being put on sale to the public. With the news of the new model getting FCC approval, means that we can be seeing the new models possibly drop any day now. The release statement shows a drawing of the new products, that resemble very strongly the existing Powerbeats.
Based from the code we have seen, they are rumoured to be replacing the their generation model, which are currently $199 on apple.com. The new model should adopt the same or similar price as the top tier Powerbeats Pro which are priced at $249.
With exception to“Hey Siri” and the H1 chip, no other stand to features have been rumoured or found before its launch.
This year, Apple is expected to release multiple different wireless products. Some of which include new AirPods, and new high-end Apple headphones that go beyond the Beats Solo Pro in their audio performance and the features that they offer. There have also been rumours of a possible new HomePod model dropping this year, a cheaper model that would serve as an entry model, and be more competitive to that of the likes of Amazon Echo and Google Home Speakers.
Due to the FCC report being public, Apple should be expected to be dropping an official release within the next few days.
