Leaked photos that purport to show Sony’s new prototype earbuds have emerged online via a post by The Walkman Blog on Saturday. The pictures on the blog show charging pins and proximity sensor on the underside of the black-and-rose-gold earbuds. The blog’s photos were earlier Monday by The Verge.
According to the report, the new Sony earbuds could include:

  • High-resolution audio support
  • Six-hour battery life
  • Faster charging capacity: a 10-minute charge could provide 120 minutes of playback
  • Wireless charging

Sony’s WF-1000XM4 earbuds will possibly launch sometime around June 8 or 9, The Walkman Blog said, citing FCC documents.
Sony responded by saying it does not comment on product speculation.
