OnePlus has announced its new beginning in its favor of launching the OnePlus Nord. OnePlus Nord is one of the most talked devices and the anticipation among tech enthusiasts is touching the sky. We pretty much know everything about the device and what OnePlus is hiding under its sleeve with the Nord, thanks to the streak of leaks and official announcements. Now, OnePlus on Twitter confirmed that the launch of OnePlus Buds, which is being rumored for quite some time now.
This pair of earphones have to be the first truly wireless earbuds from the company. In the past, OnePlus has launched its neckband, but they were not a huge hit. OnePlus not only announced the name of the earbuds but also announced the date. As one would already expect these pair of TWS earbuds will be launched on July 21st during the Nord launch event.
As for the name, the company is simply calling it OnePlus Buds. OnePlus claimed in a press release that this device will deliver high-quality audio playback and easy-to-use experience on the go. Although that did not seem like a huge claim, it did raise the expectation of the tech world, as these words came from OnePlus.
Now you know the name. See our first truly wireless earphones July 21. #OnePlusBuds

OnePlus Buds on July 21st
According to Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, “With the new OnePlus Buds, we are further building out our portfolio of products that give our users a burden less experience. Our users are looking for the right combinations of great sound quality and seamless connectivity. Which will be combined with easy to use experience? That is exactly what the OnePlus Buds will deliver”
Although OnePlus did not reveal any teaser image of the OnePlus Buds, going by the previous leaks we can expect these to share a design resemblance with Apple AirPods. According to a render shared by tipster Max J, the device will have a curved charging case and it seems like there would be a charging indicator too. That means, it is less likely to have application support. But we expect to see the pop-up on smartphones which shows battery, etc like Airpods and Mi TWS 2. Or just the Google Smart connect found with Realme Buds.
Meanwhile, the OnePlus Buds are certified by Finlands SGS Fimko testing and certification agency last week. According to them, these buds are likely to carry the model number E501A. To sum it up, we expect OnePlus buds to come under 10,000 INR with some decent drivers. We can also expect the device to come in two colors namely Black and White.
