Huawei is expected to unveil its premium Mate 20 phones on October 16 in London after showing off the Mate 20 Lite in IFA 2018. Along with the Mate 20, there could be an introduction to the Airpod competitor – Huawei Freebuds 2 Pro true wireless earbuds.

This Airpod competitor seems to have a rad way of charging it. Just set the earbuds on your phone (yes! phone), and they’ll charge up. The charging case will reportedly have a Type-C port for wired charging, but they also support Qi wireless charging.
Going by the marketing materials for the Mate 20, the Freebuds 2 Pro say that you can also use the phone as a charging pad. Just flip the Mate 20 over and drop the charging case on the back to juice it up. It’s unclear whether you can charge other things with the phone or not, but it would be great if we could.
According to some reports, the earbuds have around three hours of life per charge with another 20 hours in the case. If charging the case via your phone will take about two hours. This charging will kill phone’s battery, but earbuds won’t be much use if your phone is dead (anyway).
