Alongside the all-new Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro, Oppo has today also unveiled its truly-wireless earbuds, the Oppo Enco, at an event in China. The Oppo Enco are in-ear style earbuds with silicone ear tips, and they come with Bluetooth 5.0 with Binaural Simultaneous Bluetooth transmission, and an AI noise cancellation.
The Oppo Enco Free follows the ongoing trend of truly-wireless earbuds and adopts a similar design language, except for the added silicone ear tips. Instead of offering a single kind of ear tip, the Enco comes with two distinct designs: in-ear tips for a more secure fit and semi-in-ear tips for offering some breathability. One of the interesting highlights of the earbuds is the Binaural Simultaneous Bluetooth transmission, which claims to offer a synchronized audio experience by delivering sound to both ears simultaneously. Further, it also suggests having gone through a range of system-wide optimizations to bring the latency to ~120ms.
As for features, the Oppo Enco Free comes with touch controls to offer ease-of-use and make it easy to perform operations without having to take out your phone every single time. For starters, the earbuds allow double-tap on either earbud to answer/decline calls or turn music on or off. Similarly, they also support slide controls, with a slide up-down to adjust the volume or change the tracks.
Oppo suggests that the Enco Free earbuds offer up to 5 hours of playback and 3 hours of call time on a single charge. Whereas, they offer up to 25 hours of playback and 15 hours of call time with the charging case. Further, the charging case comes with USB Type-C, which the company claims to charge the earbuds in ~70 minutes and the charging case in ~110 minutes.

The Oppo Enco Free comes in three color options: Black, White, and Pink. It is priced at 699 CNY (~ USD 99 / 7,118 INR ) and will go on sale in China starting December 21.
