OnePlus Nord Buds 3 may launch in India soon; Reportedly seen on BIS website


OnePlus Nord Buds 3, which is expected to replace the OnePlus Nord Buds 2, is likely to arrive in the Indian market soon. Although the company has not confirmed anything yet, details about the alleged true wireless earphones have recently surfaced online. A leak has shown CAD renders of the earphones along with a case, which will likely come with design improvements over the previous model. The earphones are also expected to be launched with advanced features compared to the OnePlus Nord Buds 2. A pair of OnePlus TWS earphones, speculated to be the Nord Buds 3, have now reportedly been spotted on an Indian certification site.

A report by 91Mobiles claims that a pair of new OnePlus Buds with model number E512A were spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website, hinting at a launch in India soon. These earphones can be introduced in the country with the OnePlus Nord Buds 3 moniker. The OnePlus Nord Buds 2 had the model number E508A, while the OnePlus Nord Buds 2R had the model number E510A. The listing does not provide any further information about the alleged earphones.

However, leaked CAD renders of the OnePlus Nord Buds 3 recently surfaced online. The earbuds were seen in a black color option and the charging case was seen in the same shade with an oval design. The shape of the case is quite different from the boxy case of the OnePlus Nord Buds 2.

The leaked renders show the case of the OnePlus Nord Buds 3 with a glossy lid on the top and a matte finish on the rest of the body. The earbuds appear to sport a half-in-ear design with silicone earplugs. They are advised to provide touch controls to answer or reject calls, adjust volume, control music and more.

Notably, the OnePlus Nord 3 was launched in India in April 2023 for Rs. 2,999 and is offered in gray and white color options. The IP55-rated ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) supported earphones feature 12.4mm dynamic drivers and support Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity.
