But Digitimes isn't the only source claiming new AirPods hardware is on the way. Beyond that, not much is known about either of these new AirPods models. Apple now charges $159 for the second-gen AirPods with the regular charging case, or $199 for the earbuds with the Qi-enabled case. There is another variant of the new Apple AirPods with a Wireless Charging Case priced at Rs 18,900. As per Digitimes source, Apple is yet to figure out how to find a fix on how to incorporate the noise cancellation technology in its AirPods mechanical design. Way back in June of last year, Bloomberg published a report detailing Apple's plans for a pair of premium AirPods sometime this year. This will apparently be accompanied by the introduction of water resistance and some health-related features which could include a built-in heart rate monitor. Industry sources have informed them that China's Luxshare Precision will also take on part of the orders for the upcoming AirPods. The design will be similar to the first two generations, it's suggested, as will the price. Well-known Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo also said in a note to investors (via 9to5Mac) that Apple will launch two new AirPods models in the fourth quarter of 2019. It's unclear what kind of upgrades this will entail, but Kuo believes the version will maintain the $159 starting price seen today - with the wireless charging case this will presumably rise to $199.

Noise cancellation isn't a new feature for headphones, the report notes, but it's a technology that's "hard to harness" in cord-free earbuds, according to Digitimes. One of the models will replace the existing 2nd gen AirPods and carry the same price tag as it. Sales boom of AirPods is expected to linger on, with annual shipments likely to surge to 50 million sets in 2019. Kuo writes that Apple will use a new kind of internal design called "SiP", or system-in-package.
