Qualcomm wants to bring truly wireless Bluetooth to lower cost ear buds. The company today introduced the QCC3026, a new Bluetooth Audio system-on-a-chip that device makers can use to quickly build new products. Qualcomm says the QCC3026 was made to help device makers balance functionality and cost. The QCC3026 reduces power consumption by up to 50% when compared to earlier generation chips. It is specifically aimed at phone makers that may have to remove the headphone jacks from their phones. Qualcomm believes phone makers will be able to design "quality sounding [Bluetooth] earbuds at a cost point that allows them to package them in the box" along with the phone. The QCC3026 now serves as an alternative to Qualcomm's high-end QCC5100 Bluetooth SoC, which was announced early this year. Oppo has already committed to using the new SoC for buds to be included with its flagship Find X phone.
