The Buds Pro 2 was launched globally by OnePlus earlier this year. It is expected that they will get a successor, although the exact release date is unknown. In a new leak, Onleaks has revealed the design of the OnePlus Buds 3. In addition, we learn more about the specifications of OnePlus’ next-generation flagship TWS earphones. The renders are based on the testing stage unit phase.

Like their predecessors, the OnePlus Buds 3 are semi-in-ear TWS earphones. Unlike the Buds Pro and Buds Pro 2, the upcoming offering won’t feature a dual-toned design. A glossy finish is present on the stem of the earbuds, while a matte finish is present on the silicone ear tips. It is claimed that the Buds 3 weighs just 4.77 grams less than the previous generation. On the other hand, the TWS earphones retain the same square shape. The device will be IPX4-certified, while the earbuds will be IP55-rated.


OnePlus Buds 3 are expected to have dual drivers consisting of a 10.4mm woofer and a 6mm tweeter. There is an active noise cancellation of 48 dB on the TWS earphones. In addition to Bluetooth 5.3, Google Fast Pair, and dual connectivity, the upcoming device is expected to support Bluetooth 5.3.

The OnePlus Buds 3 is powered by a 520mAh battery unit, while each earbud is powered by a 58mAh cell. With ANC enabled or disabled, the TWS earphones are said to last between six and nine hours. The battery life is claimed to be 33 hours with the charging case.
