The OnePlus Nord launches tomorrow, on July 21, and the OnePlus Buds have already taken shots at the Apple AirPods with the reveal that they deliver twice the charge and need less time to do so. Although those in need of a looser-fitting bud with noise cancelling may prefer the AirPods rivalling Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, which are on sale now.
- iPhone 12 performance leaks – and holy moly it's absolutely rapid! 🤯
- PS5 pre-order leak – it's GREAT news for PlayStation gamers
- Snapchat just got a great new feature users will love
- New iOS 14 emoji confirmed – Apple iPhone users will LOVE them
Well, now the AirPods assault has intensified with a brand new leak from OnePlus itself revealing that the OnePlus Buds will be noticeably cheaper than the established Apple rival.
As can be seen in the above Instagram post, which was posted on the official OnePlus account, the OnePlus Buds are going to have a price that is "$XX.XX".
Now, on face value, that doesn't give us a price, but what it does do, thanks to the clearly visible pricing structure, is show that the OnePlus Buds will be under $100. "$XX.XX" clearly shows the decimal coming after the first two Xs.
This teaser by OnePlus reveals therefore that unless the Apple AirPods are massively reduced, when the Buds launch they will be at least $30 cheaper than the Apple rival.
How low can the OnePlus Buds go? That is a difficult to judge, but here at T3 we would love to see them retail at $89.99.
Could OnePlus be about to deliver two knockout blows? First, a dynamite budget phone that delivers buckets of style and substance. And then second, a killer set of wireless earbuds that deliver the same quality audio and style as the AirPods but at a lower price point?
Right now, the evidence is increasingly pointing to yes.
