We recently learned that OnePlus was planning on launching its next-gen flagship lineup — the OnePlus 8 series — on April 14th. Along with the launch announcement, the company also revealed some key specifications about the upcoming devices and also hinted at a new pair of wireless earbuds in a rather cryptic tweet. Previous leaks about the earphones suggested that the company would be launching a new pair of truly wireless earbuds along with the OnePlus 8 series. However, renowned leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) has now shared images of the upcoming earbuds and it turns out that they aren’t of the truly wireless variety after all.

The images in question were shared via Blass on his Patreon page and they reveal a design almost identical to the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2, with probably the only difference being the additional color variants. The upcoming wireless earbuds from OnePlus will be available in 4 color variants — black, blue, white, and green. Blass has also revealed that the earbuds will be called the Bullets Wireless Z, but he hasn’t confirmed any specifications yet. Even though we don’t have any further information about the upcoming wireless earbuds, we can safely assume that they’ll offer better audio quality and, perhaps, improved battery backup than the Bullets Wireless 2. OnePlus itself hasn’t revealed any information about the Bullets Wireless Z yet, but we expect the company to divulge more information in the days leading up to the launch.

More details of the upcoming OnePlus Bullets Wireless Z have emerged.

Battery life is said to be up to 20 hours, which is great if true. The earphones will also feature IP55 certification for dust and water resistance. Also, the new accessory will feature a Bluetooth latency of just 110ms, as compared to the Apple AirPods Pro’s 144ms latency.
