From smart TVs to affordable phone, to TWS earphones, OnePlus is bringing many new products in the days to come. The company has already confirmed the affordable OnePlus smart TVs and some reports have revealed that the OnePlus Z is going to launch in July soon after the smart TVs. We previously reported that OnePlus is working on TWS earbuds to launch very soon as next month. A new report coming from XDA Developers suggests that OnePlus TWS earbuds will be called OnePlus Pods.

The publication revealed that it found a string of text in the OnePlus 8 first Android 11 beta build that mentions the name upcoming TWS earbuds. The string of text mentions “com.oneplus.twspods” hinting at the fact that the company’s true wireless earbuds will be called OnePlus Pods and not OnePlus Buds as previously suggested.

Google released Android 11 beta update for Pixel phone users and soon after companies including OnePlus announced the list of their first phones to get the software update. For OnePlus, the list includes OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. Here’s when your Android phone will get Android 11.
