    OnePlus 8 series will support updates. Please forgive me for not ensuring the specific update time. This depends more on the phone team.

    We are particularly excited that Buds Pro will be the best smart noise cancellation experience so far this year, which is also one of the biggest difficulties of the Buds Pro project.

    Inspired by Zen mode on your phone, we were pleasantly surprised to find that active noise cancellation and Zen mode are a perfect match, which can let you quickly enter a focused world, so we developed this function without hesitation.

    No need at all. We have built-in models of many call scenarios. It will switch according to your different soundings, which is very intellgent.

    Calling function itself, we consider its the fundamental of a premium TWS, and this must be done well. We did put a lot of effort in it but didn't do as much Marketing on it.

    This call function is a surprise. We use AI smart noise cancellation

    Trust me, it'll be more comfortable than Buds Z.

    However, everyone's ear shape is different. I can't guarantee that Buds Pro can bring you a feeling beyond Buds Z. You can buy it and have a try.

    OnePlus users do not need to install the Hey Melody App.

    You only need to update the OnePlus Buds App on Google Play.

    There is no plan to update the translation function at present. If you value this function very much, it is recommended to buy Google's.

    You can use alcohol cotton to wipe. If you use it for a long time, you can go to our customer service to ask for replacement of earplugs.

    Our black and white earphones are matte, which is our thinking about products. Matte can have more advanced texture. Our users love good things with texture very much. Another insight is that smooth headphones will be oily for a long time, and matte can solve this problem.

    This time we also boldly tried Matte Black and Glossy White, which can meet the different preferences of users.

    This is a very good question.

    We decided to use the pressure feeling at the beginning. Why is the pressure feeling rather than the previous touch? Because the switching of adaptive noise cancellation is an interaction that users will use at a very high frequency. Adaptive noise cancellation switching users will switch many times a day, which is far greater than playback and pause. And when switching active noise reduction, users want more explicit interaction rather than making mistakes. Pressure feeling can provide more stable operation than touch.

    The second is the experience of the pressure feeling scheme. We evaluated more than ten schemes, and the pressure feeling sound is not real, but we simulated it. We also made a lot of attempts to cooperate with the sound and pressure feeling feedback, and finally presented such an effect.

    We have received a lot of feedback from users, and the pressure feeling simulation is very good. But in fact, we think there are still many details to optimize, and we are also continuing to optimize. We hope we can keep listening to your valuable opinions. We will continue to improve and make the best products for you.

    After all, we NEVER SETTLE!

    Thanks for the insight sir. It was really a good idea to use both the textures at the same time on a product! Kudos to the team for doing it splendidly.

    Woah more than 30+ replies by Leo Lei, that shows how much he is involved in Buds Pro, and this confidence comes when you made an awesome product and the positive reviews of Buds Pro shows that.
    I'm impressed :)

    Will the official specs be updated to confirm this about 8? When is the ETA for A12? Do we have to wait a few weeks or months to get LHDC?
