Realme Buds Air Pro could be in the works; an AirPods Pro clone?

“In one of the Realme Link UI screenshots, we see Realme Buds Air Pro mentioned, suggesting the company could launch a more powerful pair of TWS earbuds”

Realme just launched the Realme X50 Pro 5G smartphone in India. During the launch event, the company also announced Realme Link, which is an app dedicated for Realme’s IoT products like the Realme Buds Air and the upcoming Realme Band. Interestingly, in one of the Realme Link UI screenshots, we see Realme Buds Air Pro mentioned as one of the devices on the list. This could either be a placeholder name or it could be a real product that Realme is teasing for the future. As the name suggests, the Realme Buds Air Pro could be an advanced version of Realme Buds Air, which will slot in a higher price segment. 

What are Realme Buds Air Pro?

This is the first time we are seeing a mention of the Realme Buds Air Pro, so it isn’t clear what we can expect at the moment. Considering the Realme Buds Air are inspired by the Apple AirPods, it seems highly likely that the Realme Buds Air Pro is a version of the AirPods Pro. 

The “Pro” in the name could be for improved sound quality experience and the addition of silicone ear-tips for better noise cancellation. This is what Apple offers with its AirPods Pro, and it could be something Realme plans to offer in its next iteration of the Realme Buds Air. 

So far, there have been rumours that the company is working on Realme Buds Air Neo, which are expected to be more affordable than the Realme Buds Air. The Realme Buds Air Neo recently received IMDA certification. The TWS earbuds are said to look similar to the AirPods, but the charging case might not support wireless charging.

Realme has already teased that it is planning to launch a bunch of IoT products in 2020 such as the Realme Band, smartwatch, and smart TV, among others. So it seems likely that the company could be ready to launch the successor to the Realme Buds Air later this year as well.
