OnePlus Buds Z Leaked: OnePlus, for a year or so, has been trying to release less expensive version of their premium products, serving the same core OnePlus experience at a lower price. The company, first, introduced its Bullet Wireless Z, a cheaper version of its neckband Bluetooth earphones — OnePlus Bullet Wireless — that was targeted at a larger audience (due to its starting price of Rs. 4,000).
Recently, the company introduced the OnePlus Nord, a cheaper version of its flagship product that offers that, the company claims, offers the same experience its flagship products provide, at a cheaper price. Of course, OnePlus has had to cut some corners here to bring the price down.
Well, looks like the company is at it again. The upcoming OnePlus Buds Z have leaked, and it looks like the budget TWS (True Wireless Stereo) market is going to be as clogged as the Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 15,000 smartphone market.
OnePlus Buds Z Leaked
Starting with the first image, the case of the Buds Z is horizontal, which means the buds fit in horizontally rather than vertically (found on OnePlus Buds). There’s a LED indicator in the bottom of the space below the lid.
On the back is a USB Type-C port which will, presumably, be used for charging. This is a really good step from OnePlus since most of the affordable TWS earphones use a Micro USB connector. Next to the USB Type-C port is a button, which, I’m assuming, would be used for pairing.
Coming to the actual earbuds, the OnePlus Buds Z look like a genetic cross of Huawei’s Freebuds and OnePlus’ own Buds. The OnePlus Buds are expected to be released along with the OnePlus 8T on October 14th, a day after Apple launches its iPhone 12 series.
Well, until these are available, you can go ahead and grab yourselves OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z that boast 10-hour of battery life in 10 minutes of charge.
OnePlus Buds Z are expected to feature 10mm drivers, IP55 water and dust resistance rating, Dolby Atmos support, Dirac Audio Tuner, and 20 hours of battery life.
