The truly wireless earbuds market in India grew exponentially in 2019 and is only expected to grow further in 2020 as more and more OEMs launch affordable TWS earbuds. This year, Realme launched the Realme Buds Air Neo and Realme Buds Q. 2020 also marked the debut of TWS earbuds from Xiaomi and Redmi in India. OPPO has also launched a few impressive truly wireless earbuds under the Enco series and so has Huawei. Even POCO is looking to get into the hearables segment soon.

There are a number of players in the TWS segment now, all looking to grab a piece of the growing market in the country, and it makes sense for OnePlus to join before it’s too late. As of now, not much is known about the OnePlus Buds, but a teaser by tipster Max J. suggested that the TWS earbuds will come with a stem design like the Apple AirPods.
