With the OnePlus 6 rumored to be coming this month, we’re starting to see a lot more about the device. According to a report released earlier today by Nashville Chatter Class, the OnePlus 6 could also launch alongside new wireless headphones, dubbed the “OnePlus Bullets Wireless”.
Nashville Chatter Class also discovered that “OnePlus Bullets Wireless” appeared in the Bluetooth certification database with a model number of BT31B. This means that it could be the OnePlus Bullets V2, but without any wires, or with minimal wire like the headphones shipped with the Google Pixel.
Needless to say, it looks like you won’t have to plug these headphones into the 3.5 mm AUX jack that OnePlus thankfully kept inside the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus Bullets Wireless vs. Apple AirPods
While we’re not sure if the OnePlus Bullets Wireless will truly be “wireless”, we’re certainly hoping that they’ll be a competitor to the Apple AirPods. Although with Apple supposedly releasing two new generations of AirPods, the competition remains fierce.
The OnePlus Bullets Wireless are expected to launch alongside the OnePlus 6, which would make sense as the OnePlus Bullets V2 were launched alongside the OnePlus 3T.
It’s currently unclear whether the new wireless headphones will be given away with pre-orders of the OnePlus 6 or if they will be sold separately. We have our fingers crossed for the former. Even a discount would be nice, however with the V2 headphones coming in at around $25, they won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
OnePlus is known for being a “flagship-killer” because the company includes top-of-the-line specs inside a very affordable device. This is compared to giants like Samsung and Google, whose devices are usually hundreds of dollars more expensive.
Yet whether this competition will be transferred to their wireless headphone line as well is currently unclear.
There’s one thing we do know: OnePlus is keeping the headphone jack when other companies have ditched theirs long ago. Do you think OnePlus would ever follow suit in an effort to get a thinner phone? Let us know in the comments!
