Qualcomm’s QCC3026 chip lets phone makers bundle truly wireless earbuds

"Consumers are eager for earbuds they can use all day, when they are at home, in the office or out and about without constantly needing to recharge," said Qualcomm SVP Anthony Murray. "This latest addition to our portfolio is a very robust and cost-effective true wireless solution that is optimized for both superior sound quality and pricing value, and will allow our customers to put this exciting technology in the reach of millions more buyers."Additionally, the QCC3026 includes support for several Qualcomm audio technologies, including enhanced TrueWireless Stereo, aptX audio over Bluetooth, and cVc noise cancellation to reduce background noise and echo feedback. The chip promises robust wireless connections, easy pairing, and support for digital assistants. Chinese phone maker Oppo simultaneously announced today that it will be using the QCC3026 in wireless stereo earbuds that will be included with certain Find X flagship phones, and sold separately. Original design manufacturers (ODMs) will offer other manufacturers access to QCC3026 reference designs in the second half of 2018.

The Oppo O-Free truly wireless earbuds are the latest AirPods competitor

Now it is stepping up to tackle Apple's accessory business too: the Oppo O-Free is the latest competitor to Apple's $159 AirPods. The O-Free are truly wireless earbuds with a carrying case roughly the same size as the AirPods case, touting 4 hours of usage between charges. This is significantly less longevity than what Apple touts with AirPods, which are advertised to last up to 29 hours total across the earbuds and case batteries. They will also include translation features similar to the Google Pixel Buds, integrated volume controls, and a voice assistant for controlling music ala Siri. The Oppo O-Free buds are slated to go on sale in August in China for 699 Chinese Yuan, which equates to about $106.
