OnePlus is reportedly gearing up to launch the Buds Z2, a direct successor to the Buds Z truly wireless earbuds launched last year. Just to make things a bit clear, the Buds Z2 earbuds are said to be the same pair of earbuds that were first deemed as a Lite version of the Buds Pro earbuds.
We now have more details on these earbuds, courtesy of the tech blog 91Mobiles and the notable tipster @OnLeaks. In addition to the details, the renders of the Buds Z2 have also been shared. These renders are said to be representing the final design of the alleged earbuds.
Coming to the appearance of OnePlus Buds Z2, they look quite similar to last year’s model, featuring the same cylindrical stems and a shiny, flat back panel. The charging case is pill-shaped and pretty identical to its predecessor.
The earbuds have smaller silicone ear tips, so they should be more comfortable to wear for long periods. The case has a USB Type-C port and a green LED. There are multiple cutouts on each earbud, and the publisher points out that these are probably for sensors like auto wear detection and possibly noise isolation as well.
Thanks to a previous leak, the only technical information available on these upcoming earbuds is that they feature Active Noise Cancellation. It should be noted that Max J. referred to these earbuds as the Buds Pro Lite version, but the latest report is addressing them as the Buds Z2. It is expected that the new pair of earbuds will launch alongside the OnePlus 9RT, which means sometime in October.
