The regulatory body is responsible for managing the EU trademark and the registered Community design. It also works with the IP offices of the EU Member States and international partners to offer a similar registration experience for trade marks and designs across Europe and the world.

As spotted by Android Headlines, the trademark applications include monikers such as FreePace, FreeGo, FreeStudio, FreeTrack, FreeForm, FreeBand, FreeStep and more. Only one filing breaks the pattern by registering the “Huawei Free” brand.

Unfortunately there is very little info that could help pin down the actual products behind these names. But most applications target earphones, headphones, smart speakers, home automation devices, and music players. Others target a wider range of devices including mobile phones and laptops.

Huawei’s only product that carries the Free brand right now are the Huawei Freebuds. Introduced in 2018, the wireless earbuds were quickly followed by a Pro version which currently only sells in China.
