Huawei Kirin A1 Chip Devices to Launch in India, FreeBuds 3, Watch GT2, Wireless Earphones and More :- Huawei has today announced that the world’s first and only chipset exclusively for wearable devices — Kirin A1 will be coming to India early next month. The company has officially announced plans to “launch” the Kirin A1 chip here in India, although it will only be available as part of fully built products, of which there are no confirmed launch details yet. While the company has not yet confirmed this, it is expected to launch FreeBuds 3 and Watch GT 2 will also soon launch in India.
Huawei Kirin A1 Chip Devices to Launch in India
The Huawei Kirin A1 chipset was first announced in September this year during IFA 2019 in Berlin. The chipset rivals the Apple H1 processor that powers the true wireless earphones AirPods.
The Kirin A1 chipset from Huawei is touted by the company as the world’s first headphone-centric processor to support Bluetooth 5.1. It also offers low latency and ultra-high-definition audio output, among other things. Kirin A1 is equipped with an energy-efficient Cortex-M7 processor that brings with it powerful multi-sensors. This combined with a capacitive sensor, optical heart rate sensor, and additional sensors such as an accelerometer sensor and a six-axis sensor will allow Huawei to offer a powerful wearable product to “disrupt” the market.
Huawei has already announced its FreeBuds 3 truly wireless earphones and Watch GT2 smartwatch internationally, which are based on the Kirin A1. These products are expected to be launched in India soon, as the company attempts to strengthen its position as it deals with being cut off from Google’s Android software and frameworks as a result of US trade restrictions. The company recently launched its Mate 30 series of smartphones without Google apps.

The Huawei FreeBuds 3 promise adaptive noise reduction, acoustic echo cancelation, and speech recognition for hands-free use. Dual-channel synchronous transmission technology is said to reduce audio latency and mitigate the effects of radio signal interference all while reducing the power needed to transmit audio to the left and right earbuds in a pair of truly wireless earphones. The FreeBuds 3 features a “dolphin bionic design” and can sense bone vibrations for picking up the wearer’s voice better. Huawei boasts of “studio-quality sound” and 20 hours of total playback time per full charge.
The Huawei Watch GT2 is said to last for two weeks on a single charge. It is designed to look like a traditional watch with a round face and a minimalist overall look. It monitors sleep and stress as well as activity and heart rate. 42mm and 46mm versions have been announced, in Sport, Classic, Elite, and Elegant editions, with a variety of straps.
The Huawei FreeBuds 3 is the world’s first open-fit active noise cancelling earphones. Meanwhile, the Watch GT 2 will succeed the Watch GT in India with a 14-day battery life, circular OLED display, and improved health tracking.
