The new WF-1000X earbuds on which Sony was rumored to be working consist of hi-tech features, Bluetooth SIG and FCC have recognized the device Sony’s WF-1000XM4, as confirmed by the sources. It was supposed to be the predecessor of WF-1000XM3, which Sony released in July 2019.
The grantee code of the Sony Corporation in the case of FCC is AK8, and the earbuds were nicknamed YY2948. The Bluetooth SIG supports Bluetooth 5.2, though it doesn’t give away much about the WF-1000XM4.
Specification Of Sony WF-1000XM4
The Sony’s model WF-1000XM4 is equipped with the Mediatek MT2822S SoC, known as FCC. MT2822 also has a faster CPU packed with a better and upgraded DSP coprocessor, which is about 24-bit and 192 kHz audio like the MT2811S is supported by the Mediatek chip. But the former has Hardware Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and hardware gains control.
An outline of the charging case of WF-1000XM4 is given by FCC, and there’s no possibility of WF-1000XM4 supporting any aptX codecs because the manufacturer has added a Mediatek SoC.
There is hearsay about Sony’s possibility of including its proprietary LDAC codec. Anything is not known about when the WF-1000XM4 will be released by Sony. However, there are chances of the earplugs arriving by September 2021, as suggested by FCC. Other than supporting Bluetooth 5.2, it will also support the previous version, which is Bluetooth 5.0.
The pocket pinch for the product is not yet revealed; most probably, it will be kept by Sony inside a similar price bracket like the WF-1000XM3 as per the leaked information. Till then, stay tuned to MediaScrolls for more such exciting news updates.
