OnePlus Buds' sub-$100 price teased by OnePlus' official Instagram handle
OnePlus is all set to release its first-ever TWS headphones alongside the OnePlus Nord on July 21. While we know a lot about the Nord, little information about the OnePlus Buds has surfaced form the company's official channels. Famed leaker Max Weinbach, on the other hand, has shed some light on the yet-to-be-released earphones. The official OnePlus Instagram handle has now told us that the headphones will cost lesser than $100.
The OnePlus Buds' sub-$100 price is hinted by the post's caption that reads $XX.XX. It is unlikely that OnePlus will sell those at $99.99, as it would not sit well with the price-conscious Indian market. Furthermore, that price would make it impossible for OnePlus to compete against cheaper offerings from other Chinese OEMs such as Xiaomi, Redmi, Realme, and Oppo. We're probably looking at a $50-60 price tag.
Earlier rumors hinted that the OnePlus Buds would use the company's proprietary 30W fast charging tech. Up to seven hours of battery life has been teased as well, along with AirPods-like aesthetics. OnePlus fans have been clamoring for a pair of TWS earphones for quite some time now. If priced right, the OnePlus Buds can take the highly-competitive TWS earphone market by storm.
