Realme announced a few days ago its True Wireless headset called Buds Air, via Twitter. Supposedly will not be released until the 17th but the earphones have already appeared in a listing on Flipkart, an Indian online retailer.
Thanks to the listing, we already know the look and feel of the Realme Buds Air. The earphones will have a tag of around 65 euros and are available in 3 colors: black, white and yellow. Therefore, this gadget will compete directly with Xiaomi Mi True Wireless.
In terms of features, the Buds Air has a USB-C port and Bluetooth 5.0 connection. As its name implies, the True Wireless function allows the headset to be charged directly through the box. Buds Air supports Google Assistant and touch controls for music and calls.
Realme already competes with Xiaomi on mobile phones in the Asian market. Originally created as an Oppo sub-brand, Realme is now independently led, operating mostly in India, a country with huge technology market potential.
Similarities to Apple's AirPods Are Not Coincidental
In my opinion, these Buds Air only sin in one aspect: they do not have an original design. If the brand is to claim to be a legitimate competitor in the world of accessories, it must bet on its own design. At the moment, these Buds Air are simply copies of Apple's AirPods, visually.
However, considering that the brand is taking its first steps in the True Wireless market, it is normal for them to adopt a popular format. Already Xiaomi decided to bet in different formats with their AirDots or even the mentioned Mi True Wireless.
