Aside from the Kirin 990 processor that will be used for the Mate 30, Huawei hints that they will be launching another Kirin chip—one that will be used for the next-generation FreeBuds.
New Kirin technology will connect you to a whole new audio experience.

The post teases a silhouette of a circular case with the FreeBuds standing up like in the design of the FreeBuds 2 Pro (the FreeBuds lite have the buds lying down inside the case instead).
A possible guess is that the next-generation FreeBuds will use a Kirin processor that will match Apple’s W1 audio chip for the AirPods. That means we expect better pairing process, longer battery life, lower latency, and better audio.
We should know more about the next-generation FreeBuds on September 6.
