OnePlus is yet to officially release any teaser image of its upcoming TWS earbuds. However, recent leaks suggest that it might look somewhat similar to Apple’s AirPods. According to a render shared by tipster, Max. J, the device might have a charging case that looks like the one that comes with Google’s Pixel Buds 2. The render also suggests that there might also be a battery charge indicator on the case.
Meanwhile, the device is also believed to have been certified by Finland’s SGS Fimko testing and certification agency last week. As per the listing on the agency’s website, the earbuds carry the model number E501A. Either way, there’s not a lot of info about the upcoming device at this point. However, it’s all set to launch next week, so let’s hope we get more info soon.
