OnePlus will soon join Xiaomi, Realme and many other smartphone manufacturers who are getting into the audio space with their true wireless earphones. OnePlus already has a wireless earphones lineup but following the trend, the company is now gearing up to bring its TWS earbuds very soon. In fact, reports suggest that the TWS earbuds could go official as early as July. What will OnePlus call its TWS earbuds? A new report reveals the name will be ‘OnePlus Buds’.

This means as soon as the earbuds are put inside the case they will start charging while when taken outside the charging will stop and the earbuds will be connected to the smartphone.
The OnePlus Buds case actually looks quite similar to the Google Pixel Buds but Max J. himself asks everyone to take the design with a pinch of salt.

The OnePlus Buds will reportedly launch alongside the OnePlus Z which eas previously tipped to be called OnePlus 8 Lite. The affordable OnePlus phone is also said to come with 5G support. According to rumours OnePlus Z will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, and include a 6.4-inch display, triple rear cameras and a 4,000mAh battery with support for 30W fast charging.
