Huawei launched the Freebuds 5i to international markets in the run-up to the December holidays. Just today, three weeks after the announcement, it launched the TWS earbuds in Italy and Spain for €100, while those in the UK can get them for £23.
The Freebuds 5i are a massive update to the previous Freebuds 4i, with improved active noise cancellation in its class, significantly longer battery life while remaining lightweight . They also have an attractive pebble-like design and feel, and we liked the TWS earbuds in our review.
UK users will be able to buy Freebuds 5i directly from January 10 – until then, pre-orders are only available on Huawei Store. The earbuds will also be available from Amazon, Argos, and Currys starting in early February.
Customers who pre-order in the UK will receive a £10 early bird voucher for the company’s online store, while those in continental Europe will receive a gift – A Freebuds 5i travel case.
