Huawei brings a unique offering in this segment with the launch of HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, which is the first Open-fit TWS earbuds to support call noise reduction and accurate real-time active noise cancellation. We have ensured that users get an enriched and enhanced listening experience with the TWS technology.  We are certain that this device will be a game-changer in the audio device industry in India.” said Spokesperson, Huawei Consumer Business Group, Huawei India.

The audio device boasts of a plethora of class leading features including simple and stable connectivity, ultra-low latency, and an impressive approach to noise control. The chip provides superior sonics to the device, with outstanding digital sound processing techniques, and a fine-tuned high sensitivity driver to deliver spectacular music and voice reproduction. Huawei Freebuds 3 will offer users smooth and seamless listening experience, ushering in Huawei’s new intelligent sound. With a complex bass tube cleverly tucked in each earpiece powers, users can have a studio-level music experience on the go. 

Backed by a 20-hour battery life/4.5-hour ANC usage with one charge, and packed with a powerful bass having a balanced sound (14.2 mm dynamic),  Huawei Freebuds 3 has the world’s first dedicated wearable chipset with up to 150 meter connectivity & BT/BLE 5.1 which will deliver a robust sound quality experience.

Huawei Freebuds 3 possess one of the world’s lowest audio delays (5ms processing latency), with 94% Wind Noise Elimination (Aerodynamic duct design). The earbuds comprise of easy-to -use and intelligent tap based controls. The left earbud can be used to turn on / off ANC; and the right earbud to play next song. Either of the earbuds can be used to answer / end phone calls. The offering will be infusing much excitement in the audio accessory segment, which has grown at robust double digit growth rate until recently, especially in the consumer audio accessories segment.


Engineering a new intelligent sound: the HUAWEI Kirin A1 chip

The Kirin A1 chip is the first chip we developed that has been specifically engineered for the hearable and wearable market. Kirin A1 can process complex tasks efficiently and powerfully, all from its diminutive footprint of 4.3 mm x 4.4 mm.

As the world’s first BT 5.1 & BLE 5.1 wearable chip, Kirin A1 ensures that FreeBuds 3 is unmatched for stability and ease of connectivity. Coupled with our new generation of Bluetooth signal selection algorithm brought about by intelligent adaptive frequency-hopping technology in the communication field, the chip can dynamically identify frequency bands affected by 2.4 GHz signal such as Wi-Fi and hop to a free channel. This allows it to quickly adapt to environmental changes and achieve higher anti-interference capabilities.

Huawei’s own isochronous dual channel Bluetooth1, allows us to bring true stereo sound to wireless earbuds, connecting to both buds simultaneously, yet independently. Huawei’s self-developed dual channel synchronized technology allows two headsets to receive the left and right audio channels directly from a smart device, while facilitating direct communication between the device and the two headsets without interference. The self-developed dual-channel synchronous transmission mode uses leads to latency remains ultra-low down to 190 ms2, making FreeBuds 3 the perfect wireless earbud for gamers who want instant acoustic feedback for an immersive gaming experience.


All new aesthetic design, inspired by nature

The HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are housed in a rounded charging case, which is designed to comfortably fit in your pocket and rest easily in the palm of your hand.

With their ergonomic rounded curve and natural open-fit design, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 earpieces guarantee comfortable and stable wearing, allowing listeners to keep them in the ear for hours at a time. Sleekly styled and beautifully finished, the HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 benefit from a minimal yet modern design, complemented by gloss black and gloss white finishes.

The exploration of new form factors that have aesthetic, ergonomic and acoustic benefit has delivered Dolphin Bionic Design for HUAWEI FreeBuds 3. Inspired by the natural curvature of a dolphin’s vocal cavity, the design focuses and modulates the sound. This, combined with its ability to sit slightly deeper in the ear, provides a discernible improvement in sound quality for the listener.

An intelligent approach to noise cancellation

With the power of the HUAWEI Kirin A1 chip, Huawei is bridging the gap between expert chip engineering and the art of developing a high-quality, signature sound. To balance these two propositions, Huawei developed an advanced Audio Digital Signal Processor for Kirin A1 chip. The chip leads the industry in audio processing frequency at rates of up to 356 MHZ. Its precise and real-time call noise reduction algorithm allows HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 to effectively reduce environmental noise in order allow the other party to hear more clearly and create a high-quality call experience.

HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are the first Open-fit TWS earbuds that both support call noise reduction and accurate real-time active noise cancellation. Based on the simulation of ear canal, the output frequency and intensity of the noise reduction signal are adjusted for different ear canal shapes, thus achieving excellent active noise reduction effect, with open-fit wearing. By double-tapping the left earbud to turn on / off ANC function, you can still enjoy crystal clear music even in the crowded metro or a noisy restaurant.

Studio-Quality SoundBooming Bass

The high-precision, high-sensitivity 14 mm dynamic driver in HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 has been carefully tuned to allow every note to be restored to its original brilliance.

A battery built to last all day

The FreeBuds 3 case is equipped with wireless charging capabilities and can be charged by both wireless chargers and reverse wireless charged by smartphones that support reverse wireless charging. Utilizing the highly efficient power consumption of the Kirin A1 chip, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 are able to provide four hours of playback from a single charge, and a total of 20 hours when used alongside the charging case.

LinkedIn brings virtual events to connect communities online, Integration between Events, Pages, and Live helps organisations stay connected

Microsoft and Pegasystems are strong examples of companies holding virtual events to take their in-person engagements online. Both organizations live-streamed the keynotes of their respective CEOs to reach a broad base of customers, followers and prospects. 


LinkedIn, the world’s largest professional network, today announced the global launch of a virtual events solution, a tighter integration between LinkedIn Live and LinkedIn Events, to enable companies to stay connected and strengthen relationships with their online communities in real time. 

Using LinkedIn Live, companies can now host virtual events by streaming live to event attendees. This integration between LinkedIn Live and LinkedIn Events helps companies to host live, real-time events in a trusted environment, attract the right professional audiences, drive strong reach and engagement, and get more mileage for their events with a dedicated hub for videos of the event on their Pages.


In October 2019, LinkedIn launched LinkedIn Events globally and in March 2020, the platform enabled companies to create an event via their LinkedIn Pages. Today, LinkedIn launches an integrated virtual events solution with Events, Pages, and Live that allows companies to build a more personalised online event experience for their audiences.


Announcing the launch, Ajay Datta, Head of Product, India at LinkedIn said“As the business world moves from in-person conferences to virtual events, we recognise how important it is to equip our customers with tools to bring the professional community together - online, in real time, and at scale, in the safest way possible. Real-time interactions are at the heart of building relationships, and now more than ever before, these real-time interactions are critical to our customers. So we decided to accelerate our product roadmap to launch an integrated solution that helps bring the professional community together virtually, and strengthens relationships with targeted audiences.” 


Companies can now drive better reach with targeted audiences by sharing the event with their Page followers and by sharing direct invitations of the event with their first-degree networks. Further, organizers can drive strong engagement, both, before and after the event by posting and ‘recommending’ updates to them. Once the virtual event is over, organisers can keep the conversation going with the Video tab -- a dedicated hub for a Page’s organic video content. The Video tab will help companies extend the shelf-life of their live video content.

LinkedIn Live has already seen great traction with 23X more comments per post and 6X reactions per post than native video, helping companies foster real-time engagement with their networks. Additionally, LinkedIn data shows that 82% of audiences prefer seeing live-streams from brands than regular social posts, and 45% of senior leaders are considering a more permanent shift to virtual events and conferences. By combining Events and Live, LinkedIn hopes to equip brands with a powerful product suite to host virtual events


Microsoft and Pegasystems are strong examples of companies holding virtual events to take their in-person engagements online. Both organizations live-streamed the keynotes of their respective CEOs to reach a broad base of customers, followers and prospects. 

Conduent Unveils Innovative Solution to Transform Legal Invoice Review and Validation

Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT) today announced the latest addition to its Legal and Compliance solutions technology suite. Legal Invoice Analytics is a new, cloud-based invoice review and validation platform to help in-house legal teams gain insight into, and control over, legal spend with outside counsel.

Legal Invoice Analytics delivers innovative features to drive a more efficient and accurate invoice reconciliation process. Leading law departments can reduce spend by up to ten percent of expenditure on engagements with external firms and reduce staff overhead in review time by up to 80 percent. This is increasingly important as companies consider cost-saving initiatives to help them achieve financial resilience during this public health crisis.

“When an outsized portion of a legal department’s budget is expended on outside counsel, senior leaders are often compelled to use expense control as a proxy for the value that is delivered. They devote far too many hours on invoicing activities when the time is better spent driving legal strategies for the enterprise,” said Beth Fritts, General Manager, Legal, Compliance and Analytics Solutions, Conduent.

“Legal Invoice Analytics is a highly-automated technology tool to help corporate legal departments actively manage external firms’ budget and consistently enforce billing guidelines. By optimizing an intensive invoice review and reconciliation process, leaders can now emphasize desired outcomes and results—instead of cost containment—as a measure of the value of outside counsel.”

Review of external counsel’s invoices from even a simple single matter can take an average of five hours or more per month. With hundreds of invoices and thousands of line items every month, accurately managing overspend is an extremely costly and sometimes near impossible task. Conduent’s Legal Invoice Analytics technology uses analytics and automation to transform legal invoice review into an intelligent, accurate and streamlined process. In addition to reducing errors and the time that law departments spend reviewing complex invoices, Legal Invoice Analytics also delivers performance benchmarking, advanced analytics and strategic business intelligence to inform legal spend decisions.

Legal Invoice Analytics is the latest in a series of Conduent advancements that help law firms and corporate legal departments power sustainable and efficient operations and keep pace with rapidly increasing demands to achieve measurable business results.
