OnePlus will release its latest smartphone, OnePlus 8T on October 14th (October 15th in China). However, this smartphone will not be alone at the launch conference. There have been speculations that the company is working on a cheaper OnePlus Buds Z. Now, the company has officially confirmed that this device will arrive with the OnePlus 8T.
Furthermore, its latest teaser on Twitter shows that the OnePlus Buds Z will support IP55 dust and water resistance. This device can also easily cope with sweating during exercise or light rain. In addition, the new earplugs will be lighter and will bring an “immersive audio experience”. Comparing this device to the OnePlus Buds, the “Z” model is always cheaper. Although the specifications of OnePlus Buds Z are not yet clear, it is not difficult to imagine that the configuration will shrink accordingly.
