OnePlus has confirmed that there are OnePlus Buds TWS headphones ready for a launch later this month. It did it in a joking manner with the help of a play on words: “Are we friends?” (We’re Buds, right?), And in the comments on this post, they said that Buds will be a pre-order bonus for OnePlus Nord, which will be announced next week.

Later, the logo of the upcoming buds was also published and attention was again focused on the fact that we were waiting for completely wireless headphones. Well, it remains only to wait for the designated date, July 21.
OnePlus may release another budget smartphone other than Nord
There are only a few days left before the announcement of OnePlus Nord. Recently, a completely different smartphone of the company has appeared on the Web. The Geekbench test defines it as a BE2028.
The most interesting thing is the processor used. The benchmark indicates its code name – lito – and at first glance, this is the same Snapdragon 765 / 765G. However, in the code, you can find a mention of the Adreno 619 GPU, and only the Snapdragon 690 has one.
Recall that this SoC was introduced a month ago and has not yet debuted in any smartphone. Its configuration includes two Cortex-A77 cores with a frequency of 2 GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores with a frequency of 1.7 GHz.
Given the performance of Geekbench, we can say that the performance of the Snapdragon 690 is approximately equal to the Snapdragon 765 / 765G CPU, although a little slower.
As for the smartphone itself, it will also receive 6 GB of RAM, while, according to rumors, OnePlus Nord will have a minimum of 8 GB. Thus, if the benchmark data is not erroneous, we are waiting for an even more affordable smartphone from OnePlus.
OnePlus Nord specs and official covers have appeared
OnePlus Nord will be officially launched in less than two weeks. But thanks to an insider, there are already two pictures showing the technical data and three covers that were created together with artists and the YouTuber JerryRigEverything.
The well-known leaker Evan Blass has shared the images that you can find below. It shows the technical data of the OnePlus Nord. In addition, we have an image of three official covers. They will be officially presented together with the smartphone on July 21. However, we will keep you updated regarding any developments.
