Going by the official teasers, OnePlus 6 launch is just around the corner, and there’s been widespread drama surrounding the notch on the top of its display. While the company is busy justifying the presence of notch to its fans, a small yet significant fact has gone unnoticed. Unlike the premium iPhone X, the OnePlus 6 doesn’t miss out on a headphone jack. However, that isn’t seemingly deterring the upstart Chinese OEM from going the wireless route.
A recently leaked Bluetooth certification document reveals that OnePlus is planning to launch a wireless version of its Bullets earphones sometime soon. Industry analysts believe that OnePlus will be debuting these earbuds alongside its flagship device. Just in case the product that received certification makes it to the market, which we firmly believe it would, then the all-new earbuds would become the first Bluetooth-enabled Bullets from OnePlus.
For starters, Bullets are OnePlus’ own line of earphones, with the last one being the OnePlus Bullet V2. These earphones, just like previous Bullets, offered impeccable audio experience at a highly competitive price point. OnePlus is expected to follow a similar strategy with their Bullets Wireless Earphones. That said, it’s expected to be priced slightly higher than its predecessors, and that’s due to its wireless prowess.
The Bluetooth certification document doesn’t reveal much information regarding the hardware specifications of the earphones. So far, the only two credible details we have with us is regarding its model number (BT31B) and OnePlus’ hardware partnership with Qualcomm.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless Bluetooth Earphones seems to be another strategic product from the company. It’s highly unlikely for OnePlus 6 owners to spend an extra dime on these wireless earphones, but users of other phones that miss out on a headphone jack would surely be interested in such a product. This would in-turn help attract the non-OnePlus users to its platform. Previously, OnePlus carried out a similar trick with its Sandstone back iPhone case.
With that said, it can also indicate that the company is trying to push its fanbase the wireless way, and maybe, just MAYBE, the OnePlus 6T will finally ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack? Your guess is as good as ours!
