HMD Global forayed into accessories in the second half of 2018 with the Pro Wireless Earphones and True Wireless Earbuds. The Finnish company has now unveiled the Nokia Power Earbuds, featuring a a compact charging case that is claimed to provide up to an impressive 150 hours of battery life for the earbuds.
The Nokia Power Earbuds use 6mm graphene drivers and support the latest Bluetooth 5.0 standard. Unlike the company's first true wireless earbuds, which have an IPX4 rating for splash resistance, the new Power Earbuds are waterproof with an IPX7 rating.
In addition to the more durable design, HMD Global has made improvements to battery life as well. While the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds deliver up to 3.5 hours of music playback time on a single charge, the new Power Earbuds offer up to 5 hours of battery life.

This is the same as Bomaker Sifi, IPX7, BLE 5.0, 6mm graphene drivers AND AptX & AAC Technology with Qualcomm QCC3020 chip that works with Pixel phones and other high end Android phones.
I got the Nokia True Wireless Earbuds, and they are really practical, sturdy with a durable battery life. And while it may sound superficial, I love the design of the carry/charge case (nice that they come with an extra USB-C cable in the box). So far they've been a worthwhile investment. Not as flashy as the Apple Earpods, but a solid and less expensive alternative.
