Leaked OnePlus Nord TWS headphones
OnePlus appears to be bringing its budget Nord brand to the true wireless earphone market, according to a new leaked, with renders of the OnePlus Nord TWS on the internet.
After the launch of the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G smartphone, the brand seems to be preparing the OnePlus Nord TWS headphones. Established leaker OnLeaks has a shared render showcasing the design of the new budget buds.
As revealed by 91mobiles, these renders would be based on live footage of final prototyping units. In other words, they might not be a perfect representation of what we’re going to get, but they should be broadly accurate.
As you can see, the OnePlus Nord TWS comes in black, but with a gold flourish and with a sleek, flat charging case. The stems of the earbuds seem much wider than previous OnePlus earbuds like the OnePlus Buds Pro.
OnePlus is said to be planning a significantly expanded roster this year, with rumors of a fitness band, a new smartwatch (after the OnePlus Watch) and a tablet coming in 2022.
There’s no news on pricing, but given the Nord name association, we’d expect the headphones to be well below the £139/$149 price of the OnePlus Buds Pro. The latter represented OnePlus’ first attempt at a pair of high-end wireless headphones and proved to be the company’s best and most comprehensive audio product to date.
Hopefully we’ll also hear news about a global rollout for the OnePlus 10 family before too long. The OnePlus 10 Pro launched in China in January, but there’s been no indication of a wider rollout, or any hint of a regular OnePlus 10.
