If you love all things OnePlus then there’s a very exciting week of announcements ahead. We already know that the Chinese technology firm will be releasing its new OnePlus Nord smartphone on July 21 which looks set to offer some pretty premium specs at a price that won’t hurt your wallet.
Now it seems something else will arrive alongside this budget smartphone and we certainly like the sound of it.
OnePlus has just confirmed that it will be unveiling its new OnePlus Buds which will be the first time the company dipped its toe in the true wireless earphone market.
OnePlus says its Buds are designed to deliver high-quality audio playback and a simple experience for users on the go.
“With the new OnePlus Buds, we are further building out our portfolio of products that give our users a burdenless experience,” said Pete Lau, Founder and CEO of OnePlus. “Our users are looking for the right combination of great sound quality, seamless connectivity and an easy-to-use experience. That’s exactly what the OnePlus Buds will deliver.”
OnePlus Nord release
There’s no further details about these music makers but we’re expecting them to include similar features to Apple’s AirPods such as a charging case and touch controls so you don’t have to reach for your smartphone each time you want to skip a track or pump up the volume.
We’ll have to wait for full details to be announced and luckily that date isn’t that far away.
As we mentioned earlier, OnePlus Buds will be revealed at the same time as its more affordable smartphone, the OnePlus Nord.
To watch the livestreamed AR launch you’ll need to download the OnePlus Nord AR App from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
Express.co.uk will also be bringing you live updates throughout the keynote and we hope to get our hands on both products for a full review so watch this space.
Next week’s launch comes hot on the heels of Google who have just released their Galaxy Buds in the UK.
This is Google’s second attempt at wireless earbuds and this new device is certainly an improvement over its predecessor.
For £175 you get earbuds with five hours of playback and adaptive sound which changes depending on your environment.
There’s also the Google Assistant built-in so you can check the weather and hear messages without needing to pull your phone from your pocket.
This market is growing by the week and OnePlus could shake things up if it can produce its Buds at price that makes its rivals look stupendously expensive.
