Days after introducing several new devices – smartphones and a wearable – the Kenyan market, realme is back with yet another product: the realme Buds Air Neo.
The realme Buds Air Neo are the brand’s true wireless earbuds which let users listen to music, place and receive phone calls and more without having to worry about wires or even running out charger. According to realme, they can sustain music playback for up to 17 hours.
The realme Buds Air Neo pair up with compatible devices via Bluetooth (they support Bluetooth 5.0).
They also offer one-touch access to the Google Assistant thanks to their touch controls.
Other features include the promise of super-low latency (119.2 milliseconds) and instant connection with paired devices thanks to their R1 True Wireless chip.
The Buds can be further managed – and upgraded – via the realme Link application.
The realme Buds Air Neo are going for Kshs 5,000.
realme’s true wireless earbuds are the latest addition to a market segment that is seeing a lot of attention recently. Their pricing places them as direct rivals of some of what sister brand Oppo is offering.
Oppo has, over the last 3 months, launched its own line of true wireless earphones that includes the Enco W31 and the Enco W11. Whereas the former steers clear of the realme Buds Air Neo’s horizons with their Kshs 8,000 pricing (at least that is what they were going for at launch, maybe things have since changed), the latter is pretty much the Buds Air Neo’s direct competitor at Kshs 5,000.
Tecno is also availing its true wireless earbuds, known as HiPods H2, in the Kenyan market. The Chinese brand is offering them for free with every purchase of its latest smartphone, the Camon 16 Premier.
The realme Buds Air Neo are available for purchase across the country starting today.
