We have finally received the Huawei FreeBuds 5i with an improved design and battery when compared with its successor – the Huawei FreeBuds 4i. Here, we will talk about the specs, features, availability, and the expected price of Huawei FreeBuds 5i in Nepal.

Huawei FreeBuds 5i Overview

Design

We have new in-ear earbuds as Huawei FreeBuds 5i. It brings a case like a cobblestone which then holds the earbuds very nicely. Compared to FreeBuds 4i, the 5i is very lighter and shorter as well. This means it feels very comfortable to your ears. To compare exactly, the device is 18% lighter.

This happened despite the change in a battery of 410mAh instead of 215mAh in the earlier buds. Further, the device is available in three different color options – Cosmic Black, Ceramic White, and Island Blue.

Audio

Moving on, FreeBuds 5i is driven by a 10mm dynamic driver with an LDAC codec and Hi-Res Audio support. You can connect the buds to your phone with Bluetooth 5.2. It is also available to connect to multiple devices simultaneously.
