Nokia Power Earbuds Lite, the entry-level wireless earbuds launched in India

HMD has launched Nokia Power Earbuds Lite, which look similar to the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro. These are a toned-down version of 2019's Nokia Power Earbuds.

Nokia Power Earbuds Lite: Design

The design of the earbuds themselves is elegant and stylish, they are made of plastic, like other true wireless headphones in the same price range. The shape of the earbuds should be comfortable enough for long hours of use.

Customers can choose the earbuds in Charcoal, Fjord or Snow colors depending on their individual style and preferences. The charging case also has the same color as the earbuds.

Nokia Power Earbuds Lite: Protection

Nokia Power Earbuds Lite have IPX7 rating to protect against sweat or water. HMD states that the earbuds can withstand water at a depth of up to 1 meter for 30 minutes, which means that they are suitable for splashing, but cannot swim or shower with these earbuds.

Nokia Power Earbuds Lite: Connectivity

The headphone's large touch surface makes it easy to control media playback, manage calls, and set volume levels to stay connected and be ready to go faster.

One omission is the lack of support for a dedicated app to control the earbuds and make changes for more personalized listening experience.

You can play music for 5 hours with a single charge of your earbuds. The charging case has a 600 mAh battery and can allow up to 30 hours of additional music playback per charge.

There is a USB Type-C port to charge the earbuds' charging case. All modern Android smartphones have the same charging port. You don't need to carry an extra wire to charge the earbuds while travelling.
