OnePlus might launch true wireless earbuds alongside OnePlus 7, hints CEO Pete Lau

OnePlus Bullets

OnePlus is expected to release its OnePlus 7 smartphone in upcoming months and there have already been leaks about the phone surfacing online. CEO Pete Lau has also confirmed that the smartphone will not be coming in with wireless charging support. Now, Lau, while elaborating about the company’s venture into the wireless audio with the removal of 3.5mm headphone jack, hinted that OnePlus might be looking forward to introducing true wireless earbuds alongside the OnePlus 7 smartphone this year. However, this is just speculation and OnePlus might very well end up improving upon its already available Bullets Wireless earphones, instead of launching an AirPod competitor.

In a Weibo post, Lau said that removing the headphone jack from OnePlus devices was a conscious decision. According to him, wireless headset products have a lot of potentials and has enough space for improvements.  He says that its current product is “very good, [but] it can be even more extreme.” This suggests that the company is looking forward to improving its wireless audio experience by launching new products–which may be true wireless earbuds along with the lines of the Apple AirPods and the Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Last year, OnePlus launched its Bullet Wireless earphones alongside OnePlus 6, and with the launch of the OnePlus 7, the company may be looking forward to further improving its wireless audio accessories. Lau also left his Weibo post open-ended, asking his followers to send suggestions on the new features that can be added to improve the wireless audio experience.

The post has led to the speculations that OnePlus might be working on true wireless earbuds. The company will look to launch a OnePlus Bullets Wireless successor this year alongside the OnePlus 7, but this is all pure speculation at this point. OnePlus has not started teasing the smartphone or the audio accessory as of now.

OnePlus 7 is expected to be announced in a few weeks and will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Leaked renders of the device hint at a pop-up selfie camera.
