Two days ago, we revealed the OnePlus 8T wallpapers. We're now presenting you OnePlus Buds Z images extracted from an APK we've been sent by someone willing to stay anonymous. While we would have liked being able to share that APK so that our findings can be independently verified, we unfortunately cannot as we've been asked for it by our source.

For the context, those files show up as edited since placeholders were present since Open Beta 1 for 8-series (in which one we spotted and tipped to XDA first mention of Buds Z in /vendor partition)

According to those drawable files, there should be three variants of the Buds Z: one white, one grey and one black.
You can find them below (you may need to scroll a bit by the right), or on MEGA should you wish to see them in their original size.

We expect the Buds Z to be officially revealed at the same time as the OnePlus 8T on October 14th and we will update this article in case specifications change.


Since the Buds Z will be cheaper than the normal Buds, each spec reflects a slightly cut-down variant of the normal Buds:
