OnePlus Buds Z successor could have huge connectivity and battery upgrades

OnePlus' next cheap wireless earbuds may pack some premium features.

What you need to know

  • Renders of the next OnePlus Buds Z have leaked on the web.
  • The new leak reveals significant upgrades in the battery and connectivity departments.
  • OnePlus is expected to unveil the OnePlus Buds Z2 sometime in October.

OnePlus' follow-up to the Buds Z wireless earbuds popped up in leaked renders a few weeks ago, revealing a design that looked the same as the original version. Now, a fresh leak provides details about the specs of the rumored OnePlus Buds Z2.

According to GizNext, the upcoming wireless earbuds will have Bluetooth 5.2 and a 40mAh battery, which will allegedly allow you to listen to music for up to five hours with noise reduction turned on or seven hours with it turned off. The previous generation had a maximum battery life of only five hours.

With the charging case, the accessory supposedly promises up to 27 hours of music playback with noise reduction enabled and up to 38 hours with noise reduction disabled. The original version, on the other hand, had Bluetooth 5.0 and a battery life of up to 20 hours only when fully charged.

The 520mAh charging case is said to be capable of reaching 100 percent capacity in 90 minutes. The pair is also said to have an IP55 rating, which means it can withstand being submerged for up to 10 meters. The charging case is also rumored to be IPX4 certified.

However, the earbuds may have unimpressive codecs, as the leak indicates that the Buds Z2 will only have AAC and SBC options. Fortunately, the earbuds may include active noise cancellation, putting them on par with some of the best cheap wireless earbuds.

The Buds Z2 is also expected to be available in Day White and Night Black color options. There's no word yet on pricing or availability, but we shouldn't have to wait long to find out.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. 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

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
