Google and Amazon would like to release their own Airpods-like ears in the second half of next year. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who until now mainly specialized in information about unannounced products and services from Apple.

With this, the market for wireless earphones really gets going, Kuo expects according to 9to5Mac . Google already has bluetooth earphones, but they are not separate ears and they are wired together. Amazon now has no comparable product.

The company Unitech would deliver the PCB for both products, while Goertek will assemble the products, Kuo reports. It is unknown how he arrives at his information, but in the past the analyzes he gave often proved correct, although Apple was his specialty so far.

Kuo sees Google and Amazon as the main competitors for Apple’s wireless earphones, as Google is the most influential brand in the Android field, while Amazon with Alexa has an influential voice assistant in the US. Apple released its Airpods two years ago. Kuo expects Apple to integrate sensors that monitor health into an upcoming version of the earphones.
