Considering the size and importance of Indian market, it is highly likely that India will be one of the first countries to lay its hands on Huawei Freelace earphones.

This Huawei proprietary technology eliminates the often time-consuming process of pairing Bluetooth peripherals with smartphones, which usually involves discovery and several attempts at establishing a wireless connection.”
