We have been with the Powerbeats 4 in the starting line for weeks, we have seen the approval pass and its specifications practically 100% filtered. Now, before Apple has even officially released its new headphones even with a mere press release, have already been for sale in the stores of the Walmart chain in the United States.
This has been reported by Twitter by the user Eddie Wap (@eddiezus) who shared this past Saturday an image in which the new Apple headphones for sale were shown at the establishment in Rochester, in the state of New York.

This also confirms previously filtered specifications such as design or battery with up to 15 hours duration as you can clearly see on the box. In addition, we can see how the store is offering them at $ 149 versus the current price of $ 199 for Powerbeats 3, which will mean a decrease of the price of $ 50 with respect to the current ones. In any case, we cannot give truth to this until Apple officially announces them, since particularly Walmart usually employs a very competitive pricing policy, so this price may not correspond to the one Apple announced.

The new Powerbeats 4 are a simpler version of the current Powerbeats Pro, which incorporate the Apple H1 chip that allows you to invoke Siri with your voice at any time as well as helping to achieve those 15 hours of battery that we have been talking about, in addition to an improved latency.
It is not known why these new headphones are previously available in this store in front of the Apple Stores both physical and online, although we suspect that it was due to a mistake by Walmart as a distributor. Now it only remains for Apple to officially launch the headphones to confirm features such as the official price, for now Walmart has been ahead of them.
