Huawei FreeBuds 5i wireless earbuds coming to Malaysia this 25 January with exciting giveaway

Huawei Malaysia has announced that they will be bringing in their midrange FreeBuds 5i wireless earbuds to Malaysia this coming 25th January 2023 though they did not mention how much it will cost.

What are the Huawei FreeBuds 5i

The Huawei FreeBuds 5i are intended as a more affordable mainstream model to their flagship FreeBuds Pro 2 but still retain plenty of the features of its higher end sibling including Hi-Res audio certification, dual-mic active noise cancellation up to 42dB, easy pairing and seamless swapping between two different devices like your phone and laptop. In terms of endurance, the FreeBuds 5i offers a rated 28 hours of battery life inclusive of the charging case. Fortunately charging it is swift as a 15-minute charge gets you a good 4 hours of playback time.

A provided press image also showed its three potential colourways with your choice of either black white or a light muted looking blue. The only thing missing perhaps is how much it will cost when it launches in Malaysia near the end of the month on 25th January 2023.
