OnePlus will launch its first wireless earbuds

Wireless bullets are coming!

Published

on

Recently, OnePlus fans exhaled a collective sigh of relief. The brand confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will still have a 3.5mm audio port. Now, OnePlus forums are reporting that the latest OnePlus generation will also cater to wireless audio fans.

Spotted by news blog Nashville Chatter, the wireless earphones popped up on a Bluetooth certification site.

Simply named the OnePlus Bullets Wireless, the earphones belong to OnePlus Technology. Qualcomm Technologies also supports the earphone’s design.

Since it’s just a listing, we don’t have designs or specifications yet. However, the certification hints that the earphones will launch alongside the OnePlus 6. It’s an odd choice, given that it will still actively support the headphone jack.

OnePlus’s current earphone offering, the in-ear OnePlus Bullets V2, launched more than a year ago. Sadly, OnePlus sold them separately from their phones except during limited bundle deals. For its US$ 20 price tag, the V2 offered a lot of value in terms of design and performance.

When the Bullets Wireless are launched, they will enter a market slowly eking its way into wireless. The eventual launch will share the limelight with the Sony Xperia Ear Duo and the Apple AirPods.

Right now, except for the name, we can only speculate how the Bullets Wireless will look, perform, or handle wireless. If they do launch with the OnePlus 6, we can expect to see them later in the month.

In the deep annals of ancient internet history, one of the earliest memes was the infamous Banana Phone song. In fact, the word “meme” hadn’t even entered our common lexicon when the video first dropped on YouTube. Since then, the video has gained massive online popularity, earning it a spot in the internet hall of fame.

More than a decade later, we finally have the technology to create a real Banana Phone. Created by the Banana Phone LLC, the Banana Phone is literally a banana-shaped phone. Somewhat.

Instead of a smartphone (or even a dumb phone), the Banana Phone is a Bluetooth-enabled device that merely connects to your smartphone. In other words, yes, you can take calls on a banana.

The device isn’t a new one, either. The Banana Phone was first developed in 2017 through an Indiegogo campaign. However, The Verge has spotted a new one already in the works.

According to the founder himself, the upcoming Banana Phone will come with a loudspeaker built for music playback. If the mood takes you, you can actually play the original “Banana Phone” video through an actual Banana Phone. We’re living the dream.

Besides the loudspeaker, the new model will come with a bigger battery, capable of up to 20 hours of usage. Despite the upgrade, the Banana Phone will still have the same US$ 39.99 price tag.

Currently, the new model is still unavailable on the Banana Phone’s official site. However, it will likely launch sometime around the end of November.
