Sony has been producing some of the best noise-canceling headphones for several years now and though they recently released the WH-1000XM4 Headphones, they're reportedly set to launch a true wireless earbuds version of the headphones this year.
According to leaked FCC documents which were uncovered by The Walkman Blog, it was revealed that the Sony WF-1000XM4 is slated to launch in June 2021.
The Walkman Blog claimed in their report based on the FCC listing that the Sony WF-1000XM4 will be available by June 8 and should be officially announced around then.
The design of the earbuds have also leaked ahead of the launch as images have shown that the WF-1000XM4 will have a slightly different design when compared with its predecessor. The charging pins and sensor can be found on the underside of the earbuds.
Images of the charging case reveal a slimmer profile with 5V/140mA charging output rating which is slightly above the WF-1000XM3’s 5V/120mA rating. According to reports, the charging case will support wireless charging and will offer up to 120 minutes of playback in 10 minutes charge.
While the Sony WF-1000XM4 already supports Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Bluetooth 5.1/5.2 technology, there are speculations that Sony might include Hi-Res audio support.
There is no official announcement by Sony in regards to the launch of WF-1000XM4 but given the June 8 availability date mentioned in the report, it is expected that an announcement will be made on or before that date.
