Huawei has confirmed the launch of its Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro smartphones for October 16. New leaks suggest that the upcoming phones could also come with an AirPods-like set for earphones, for which Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be wireless chargers. The device called Freebuds 2 Pro was reported by WinFuture, which has also leaked images of the device, and its setup.

The leaked images of Freebuds 2 Pro, showcased by tipster Roland Quandt, greatly resembles Apple’s wireless earphones in design. Huawei’s wireless headphones can be wirelessly charged through their portable case, that doubles up as a loading dock.

Freebuds 2 Pro is estimated to be compliant with Qi-based wireless charging options, though the casing is also expected to ship alongside type-C USB support.

Additional images show Huawei Mate 20’s back, with the earphones case sitting on top during charging. The report also claims that Freebuds 2 Pro could charge through wireless mode in 3 hours, while the USB charging option reduces the same to 2 hours.
