OnePlus in the summer, along with the Nord smartphone, announced its first TWS-earbuds OnePlus Buds. Now there is information that the manufacturer is preparing another model for release.
German insider Max J., who is famous for his reliable leaks of OnePlus products, said that the manufacturer is working on budget OnePlus Buds Z headphones. They will be a simplified version of the regular model. Consequently, their price tag will be less than $ 80. Unfortunately, there are no details about the new product yet, but we can assume that they will receive a similar design, a quick connect function, and proximity sensors. It is definitely not worth waiting for ANC in them.
By the way, this is not the first time that information about OnePlus Buds Z appears on the network. A week ago, OnePlus developers rolled out the OxygenOS 11 Open Beta 1 firmware with Android 11 onboard for the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. It was then that the new name of the headphones was noticed in the system code.
Most likely, OnePlus Buds Z should be expected at the OnePlus 8T presentation. The event should take place late this or early next month.
As a reminder, US customs recently seized 2,000 “fake Apple AirPods” that turned out to be original OnePlus Buds. This was clearly a mistake of the officers, but they do not recognize it and are not going to return the batch to the company yet.
