The FCC has approved the upcoming Nothing Ear Stick, and we also got a better look at the design of the case and a few key specs. The B157 model number given to the new earbuds when they certified, and the listing showed a picture of the transparent case and antennas inside the soon-to-be-release earbuds.
Nothing Ear (Stick) will have dual-mode Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, and each bud is said to have a 36mAh battery. The cylindrical charging case, on the other hand, will hold 350mAh and charge via USB-C.
Carl Pei’s marketing staff may know design, but the FCC images may disappoint if you anticipate the new true-wireless earphones to be considerably different from the Nothing Ear 1. (via GSMArena). One illustration depicts the Ear Stick employing a transparent shell like the Phone 1 and Ear 1, coupled with black circuitry and antennae.
FCC paperwork (ID 2AZEQ-B157) shows Nothing’s Ear Stick B157 uses Bluetooth v5.2. Each bud will have a 36mAh Li-ion polymer battery, but the case will have a 350mAh battery, so we can recharge the buds four times before the case runs out. The retail packaging will include a foot-long USB-C to USB-C charging cable.
The Nothing Ear Stick made an unofficial premiere at Fashion Week, but we won’t know anything about its design for a time. Later this year, the company will launch earbuds.
