According to insiders, BYD supplies batteries to Huawei’s two TWS earphones. the models are kept secret and Huawei is also developing them. “In the field of TWS, Huawei is our first customer. In the future, we will mainly focus on service brand manufacturers.”
In addition to the TWS battery, there are lithium battery protection IC. On July 28th, BYD semiconductor WeChat public account released a news that Honor recently released Earbuds X1 true wireless Bluetooth headset, equipped with an integrated lithium battery protection IC-BM192 developed and produced by BYD Semiconductor.
