Realme true wireless earbuds with Apple AirPods Pro-like design spotted in patent images

Realme's next TWS earbuds may take on Apple's AirPods Pro

  • Realme may launch a pair of truly wireless earbuds that look similar to the Apple AirPods Pro
  • The patent images show the earbuds with silicone ear-tips and a stem design

Realme has launched three true wireless earbuds already – Realme Buds Air, Buds Air Neo and Buds Q. The former two look similar to Apple’s AirPods while the latter draws inspiration from Samsung’s Galaxy Buds. It now looks like the brand could launch a premium TWS earbuds that are similar in design to the AirPods Pro. 91mobiles has discovered three Realme patents filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, two of which are for TWS earbuds charging cases and one for the AirPods Pro-like earbuds.

The images reveal the Realme earbuds with silicone ear tips, an angular design and a stem that might be shorter than the Realme Buds Air. This design is almost identical to AirPods Pro. The ear-tips suggest the Realme TWS earbuds could offer some form of noise cancellation.

Additionally, Realme also filed patents for two charging cases along the same time as the earbuds. While one has a rounded, puck-shaped design, the latter features a flatter curved shape much like the AirPods Pro charging case. Both the carry cases have an LED indicator, USB Type-C port for charging and an extra button, presumably to enable Bluetooth pairing. If these are premium charging cases, they will most definitely support wireless charging as well. 

Separately, Realme Buds Q TWS earbuds are confirmed to launch in India by the company’s CMO Francis Wang. These are teased to cost under Rs 2,000 and will take on the Redmi Earbuds S that is priced at Rs 1,799. To recall, the Realme Buds Q earbuds were launched in China last week. They feature a 10nm driver and connect via Bluetooth 5.0. The IPX4 ensures it can handle water and dust splashes. The earbuds carry a 40mAh battery, while the case is equipped with a 400mAh capacity. Realme claims they can deliver 20 hours of battery life. Each earbud weighs 3.6 grams, while the charging case weighs 31.7 grams.
