“Realme Buds Air Neo could be a more affordable than the first-gen Realme Buds Air”
Realme Buds Air Neo, which was recently spotted in a Realme UI software screenshot, has now been leaked in live images. The pair have allegedly surfaced on Taiwanese National Communication Commission (NCC) with model number RMA205. As reported by XDA Developers, the certified wireless accessories from Realme could be dubbed as the Realme Buds Air Neo. The earphones are expected to be the successor of the Realme Buds Air, launched last month alongside the Realme X2 in India. The Realme Buds Air (Review) is the first-ever truly wireless accessory from the brand, priced aggressively at Rs 3,999 in the country.
The Realme Buds Air Neo, as seen from the images, will share most of its design cues from the original Realme Buds Air. The upcoming pair will have the same familiar Apple AirPods-like form factor with a long stem and charging case. Unlike the Realme Buds Air, however, the Realme Buds Neo charging case is said to come with a microUSB port and will lack wireless charging feature, thereby making more affordable than the original pair.
The Realme Buds Air, meanwhile, come with smart connectivity options powered by a new R1 chipset. The pair comes equipped with Google Assistant support for Android phones and Siri for iOS for hands-free communication and touch controls. The earphones sport wear detection tech under the hood that pauses the music when they’re removed and resumes when you put them back on ears. The Realme Buds Air is touted rated to last up to 21 hours, with the case holding the juice for the next 17 hours on a single charge. Lastly, the headsets are IPX2 water and dust resistant certified, comes with Bluetooth v 5.2 and Custom R1 chip, 12mm Mater Tuned drivers, and dual-mic noise cancellation to filter ambient noise during voice calls.
