After the soaring success of the AirPods, everyone, and I mean absolutely everyone, is looking to grab a piece of the pie by making their own true wireless earbud.

The latest to join the fray is HTC with their rumoured "U Ear" earbuds.

Photos of the earbuds found in regulatory filings to Taiwan's National Communication Commission, clearly shows that it looks like Apple AirPods except that it comes in black.

Even the charging case has a similar shape to the AirPods Charging Case. No word if they will support wireless charging but they do have a USB-C port.

No word yet when it will go on sale, but unless these earbuds are truly magical, it's unlikely they will do anything to reverse the company's fortunes.

HTC has been on a downward spiral for the past few years and reported its eighth straight quarterly loss just last week.
