A new tweet from Jambor suggests that the OnePlus Buds Z2 will come equipped with Active Noise Cancellation, which was unavailable on the Buds Z. To recollect, the Buds Z were launched at a price of Rs 3,190. Hence, it is likely that the Buds Z2 may arrive as one of the most affordable ANC-enabled TWS earbuds in the Indian market.

The OnePlus Buds Z2 will support Dolby Atmos and Bluetooth 5.2 for connectivity. They will come with an IP55 rating for water and dust resistance. The new leak further reveals that each earbud will offer 7 hours of battery life. They re expected to offer a battery life of 38 hours with the charging case. In addition, a quick charge of 10 minutes will allow them to last for up to 5 hours. The Buds Z2 will come in black and white variants.

Shown above are the leaked renders of the Buds Z2 that were spotted earlier this month. The next Z-branded earbuds will be sporting angled ear tips, rubber tips, and compact stems on each earbud. However, the overall design does not differ much from the OnePlus Buds Z.
