OnePlus has confirmed that it will announce a new pair of TWS earbuds at its launch event next week. The earbuds are expected to arrive as the OnePlus Buds Z. Today, the folks at Oxygen Updater, have been able to get their hands on renders of the earbuds, thus giving us a good look at the design.
According to the post by Oxygen Updater, the renders were extracted from an APK sent by an anonymous individual. Sadly, they can’t share the APK for verification, as the source has requested they don’t.
The OnePlus Buds Z will indeed have silicone ear tips that should keep the noise out and the sounds in. The earbuds will come in a large pill-shaped case with a glossy finish. The earbuds lay sideways in the case, unlike the OnePlus Buds that sit vertically. There is an LED in front while the back is home to the USB-C charging port and the pairing button.

The OnePlus Buds Z will be available in three color variants – white, gray, and black, but only two are shown above.
Specs of the TWS earbuds were also revealed earlier today by Ishan Agarwal, the young Indian leaker. In an exclusive post by 91Mobiles, the leaker revealed that the OnePlus Buds Z will have 10mm drivers and not 13.4mm drivers. It will also have Dolby Atmos and Dirac Audio Tuner.
With respect to battery life, the OnePlus Buds Z will last up to 5 hours on a single charge. With the case, the battery life goes up to 20 hours in total. There is also support for fast charging – a 10-minute charge will provide up to 3 hours of listening time. As expected, they will connect via Bluetooth 5.0 and it has been reported that each earbud will have dual microphones. OnePlus already confirmed that the OnePlus Buds Z has an IP55 rating.
