INTRO: Along with the Realme Smart TV and Realme Watch, the company has now today confirmed the launch of the long-rumored Realme Buds Air Neo for its fans. The original Buds Air is launching on 25th May. Realme has shared its first look at the TWS earbuds and confirmed some of its key features.
The official Realme Link account shared the launch date on Twitter just a couple of hours ago. The teaser which is poster has been attached below, it shows off the Realme Buds Air Neo. Just a look at the earbuds is enough to tell you that they look exactly like the original Buds Air. Still they are AirPods clone in every aspect.
Realme Buds Air Neo: Specs and Features
Realme has also set up a dedicated landing page for the Buds Air Neo, giving us a sneak peek at some of its key features.
The basic features remain the same just like the previous ones. The earbuds have a semi in-ear design and are packed in the tiny AirPods-like charging case. Only the white color earbuds stick around, the yellow (signature color) and black earbuds have been cleaned out with olive green (leaked back in March) and red colorways.
Supports Bluetooth 5.0
The earbuds are equipped with 13mm large bass boost drivers, which is slightly bigger than the 12mm drivers aboard the original Buds Air which is an additional point. They connect over Bluetooth 5.0 and support Fast Pair. Realme Buds Air Neo will also support Super Low Latency Mode in it, which can be activated by long-pressing on the earbud.
Supports Touch Controls
Realme Buds Air Neo also supports touch controls. You can tap on the earbuds to control the music playback, you can answer calls, call upon the voice assistant, and much more. The landing page where the first look has been released further confirms that the earbuds will offer 3 hours of continuous playback, which is quite low. But, you get a total of 17 hours of playback along with the charging case. It can charge your earbuds 5x times, which is great.
There is no mention of the feature of in-ear wear detection and wireless charging here, which sort-of confirms that Realme Buds Air Neo will be an affordable version of the original Buds Air. Could the upcoming TWS earbuds take on the Redmi AirDots that are set to make their India debut soon?
