A huge leak of the OnePlus Buds shows the design of the earbuds and their charging case. The leak shows the earbuds’ color options that make the AirPods look boring.
Some extra features are also speculated that could compete with Apple’s AirPods. Max Weinbach is the one who posted the renders on Twitter after getting them from the APK file of the most recent update for the OnePlus 8.
Since the photos look similar to previous OnePlus Buds leaks, and Weinbach is known as a reliable leaker, we should expect almost all the details to be accurate. Here is what you need to know.
OnePlus Buds Design Leak: What We Should Expect
The recent renders show three color options for the Buds, black with red trim, all-white, and yellow trim. Black and white are very common colors for earbuds, but the blue variant is quite intriguing. Imagine that nobody will mistake your OnePlus Buds when you wear them with the AirPods.
The Buds look to flaunt a fixed tip design with a long stem, much like other rivals, such as Huawei FreeBuds 3 or AirPods. OnePlus previously claimed that the Buds had been developed to sit securely in as many ear shapes as possible, so maybe a lack of gel tips won’t matter.
Also seen on the OnePlus Buds is a big metallic circle, which 9to5Google said it helps tie the Buds to the other main member of the OnePlus audio squad, the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2. The charging case matches those colors, which is excellent.
It also has a somehow oval shape with a charging indicator light on one edge, the hinge, the OnePlus logo, and a Bluetooth pairing button on the other side. The case allows the Buds to go for up to 30 hours of battery life, according to OnePlus’ statements.
Besides the renders, Weinbach unveiled other features, including tap-to-pause controls, an ultra-low latency mode for games, Dolby Atmos support, and more to be revealed soon.
