That charger has since leaked in full in a Wi-fi Energy Consortium (WPC) itemizing spotted by GizmoChina.
The now-pulled WPC listing included the render of the product on the high of this submit that provides us a number of hints about what the Echo Buds’ case may appear like and a few of the options of the pad. The charger seems to have an rectangular indentation for the Echo Buds’ wi-fi charging case to relaxation in, indicating the case can have a a lot completely different form than extra rectangular one used with the unique Echo Buds. (We noticed the same rectangular form in a diagram of the pad included with the FCC filings.)
