OnePlus may undercut its Buds Pro with a new set of cheaper ANC earbuds

A 'Lite' version of the OnePlus Buds Pro with active noise canceling could be in the works.

What you need to know

  • A new rumor suggests that OnePlus is developing a "Lite" version of the Buds Pro.
  • The rumored wireless earbuds will reportedly come cheap while keeping the Pro version's ANC feature.
  • It could take some time before the product hits the market.

OnePlus recently launched the OnePlus Buds Pro with quite a bunch of premium features including active noise canceling for $150. But if that price tag is a bit too much for your budget, you might be pleased to learn that the company could be working on a cheaper version of the truly wireless earbuds.

The rumored "Lite" edition of the Buds Pro will reportedly keep some of the key features of OnePlus' premium earbuds such as ANC while cutting down the price. This information comes from leaker Max Jambor who shared the rumor on Twitter.

Beyond this detail, not much is known about the rumored earphones. But considering this is a cheaper version of the Buds Pro, it's possible OnePlus will cut out some of the premium features like wireless charging support for the case and long battery life (38 hours for the Buds Pro). It's a fair trade-off, nonetheless, although we don't know yet how much it costs.

Another compromise could be in the design. While the Buds Pro has a premium look and comfortable fit, the same may not be said about the cheaper edition.

It should be noted that the Buds Pro is the first pair of earbuds from OnePlus to offer ANC. Baking that capability into a scaled-down version of the earphones will be a welcome move, making it a potentially worthy competitor to some of the best cheap wireless earbuds.

That said, it might take quite some time before OnePlus releases the cheaper Buds Pro version to the market, if at all. The Buds Pro has only recently arrived for consumers, so OnePlus would definitely not want to ruin that momentum.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
