OnePlus is reportedly working on the Lite edition of its newly launched Buds Pro TWS earphones. This is according to @MaxJmb, one of the notable tipsters in the tech industry. As per his knowledge, the Lite edition will also feature Active Noise Cancellation but it will be priced lower than the Buds Pro.

I really like the Buds Pro so I am curious what those cheaper ones have to offer
The tipster didn’t divulge more details but we are likely to hear more about it in the coming days, well, of course, if such TWS really exists. It is believed that this new edition will launch alongside the OnePlus 9RT, which is expected to launch sometime in October. So, we are standing quite a distance from the expected timeframe already. Meanwhile, we might learn more about this product.
Just so you’re aware, the OnePlus Buds Pro launched last month only. They feature 11mm dynamic drivers and have support for Dolby Atmos and LHDC. They are IP55 certified and have 95mm latency. They support ANC and good battery life. They also support Warp Charge and have the option to charge the Buds Pro wirelessly with a Qi-certified wireless charger. They also feature a transparency mode to let the ambient noise in.
It is possible that the tipped Buds Pro Lite earbuds could borrow more features from Buds Pro but this will increase the overall pricing and that’s not the overall goal. OnePlus will decide what features the descendant needs to carry and how. It is possible we might see some design changes as well. So, let’s just wait for more information to join in and tell us more about OnePlus’ plans.
