The tipster Max J. claims that OnePlus is closer than ever to releasing its first pair of truly wireless (TWS) earbuds. He also asserts that they will be launched in about 2 months from today (May 24, 2020). However, those hoping for even a slight deviation from the norm in this device category may be disappointed in this leak.

The leaker Max J. has posted material that point to new TWS earbuds emanating from a company that is yet to contribute to this device category. It consists of teasers that, while un-watermarked or trademarked, do have many of the hallmarks of up-to-date OnePlus marketing images - one of them even contains the OEM staple of the standalone term "Soon".

They all show either a case typically used to store and charge TWS earbuds or these devices themselves. One also offers an approximate and (again) single-word hint as to when they will be unveiled ("July"). This juncture of 2020 may also see the launch of the long-anticipated Z, OnePlus' rumored comeback to the middle tier of the smartphone market.

Getting back to the accessories in question, it appears that the OEM is taking no risks whatsoever with its hypothetical foray into their market. Max J.'s latest post on the subject shows a pair of earbuds of the mini-hairdryer form factor in a round-ish charging enclosure, design choices that have been seen time and again at this point.

On that note, these earbuds' name may also fail to break the monotony that has recently gripped this space: they are the...OnePlus Buds. This particular aspect of the new leak is particularly disappointing, as their possible neckbud counterparts belong to a series with a more original name ("Bullets"), at least.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
