HTC is back in action. Last month we heard reports about HTC planning to launch a new smartphone soon. And now a new report hints that the company could launch wireless earbuds soon.

Images of HTC’s U Ear wireless earbuds have been spotted on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) website. The images, that come as a courtesy of Slash Leaks give us a glimpse of how the company’s TWS earbuds would look like.

As per the images shared by the tipster, HTC’s U Ear earbuds would look a lot like Apple’s AirPods. They sport rounded corners and will be available in glossy black finish. The images also reveal that the company’s earbuds will be cased inside a squarish case where they sit horizontally, which is different from how Apple AirPods sit inside their charging case.
