OnePlus is expected to launch a pair of next-generation wireless earbuds alongside its forthcoming flagship, OnePlus 6.
The bluetooth earbuds were revealed on a Bluetooth certification website, which confirmed the existence of a product called the OnePlus Bullets Wireless.
OnePlus already sells a pair of wired earbuds under the Bullet brand.
It’s unclear whether the wireless version of the Bullet earbuds will be truly wireless, like the Apple AirPods, or include a wire that wraps around the user’s neck, like the Google PixelBuds.
First spotted by Nashville Chatter, the certification for the OnePlus Bullets Wireless reveals one additional detail about the forthcoming earbuds – they will support high-quality AptX music streaming.
OnePlus has been widely praised for the quality of its previous Bullet audio products.
Like its smartphones, these earbuds have kept a relatively low price tag compared to rival products from more established technology companies.
It would be incredibly interesting to see OnePlus launch a pair of AirPod-esque truly wireless earbuds.
Smartphone rival Huawei recently took the wraps off its own Bluetooth earbuds, dubbed Huawei FreeBuds.
Huawei claims 10 hours of use per charge, twice that offered by AirPods, as well as a bundled charging case that allows users to recharge their earbuds on-the-go, as per Apple’s product.
Apple introduced its AirPod earbuds alongside the iPhone 7, which drooped the industry-standard 3.5mm headphone port.
But those worried that OnePlus will make a similar move need not worry, OnePlus 6 is already confirmed to have a 3.5mm port.
The next-generation flagship could launch as soon as April 27th, according to the latest teaser trailers.
