Realme Buds Q TWS earbuds launched in India for INR 1,999
Just about everyone has a pair of TWS earphones on the market. Some companies even have two, and Realme has joined that list with the Realme Buds Q. It will compete with offerings from the likes of Xiaomi, Redmi, Oppo, and Vivo. Priced at INR 1,999 ($27), it will be available for sale starting July 1st on Amazon and Realme's official website.
The Realme Buds Q is a scaled-down version of the Realme Buds Air Neo. It differs from the latter in terms of aesthetics and is devoid of a few key features such as support for the Google Assistant and Fast Pair. It comes with a 10mm dynamic driver that has been optimized to boost low frequencies. The earbuds support standard Bluetooth codecs such as AAC and LDAC. There's a 119ms low-latency mode for gaming too.
The Realme Buds Q has a rating of IPX4, which means that they should be able to withstand a little dust and rain. The TWS earbuds offer up to 20 hours of playback time with the charging case and 4.5 hours on a single charge. It takes approximately two hours to charge the case fully via a micro USB cable. USB Type-C would have been ideal, as micro USB is a dying standard.
