“In one of the Realme Link UI screenshots we see Realme Buds Air Pro mentioned, suggesting that the company could launch a more powerful pair of TWS earbuds”
Realme has just launched the Realme X50 Pro 5G smartphone in India. During the launch event, the company also announced Realme Link, an app specifically for Realme’s IoT products such as the Realme Buds Air and the upcoming Realme Band. Interestingly, in one of the Realme Link UI screenshots, Realme Buds Air Pro is mentioned as one of the devices on the list. This can be a placeholder or it can be a real product that teases Realme for the future. As the name suggests, the Realme Buds Air Pro could be an advanced version of Realme Buds Air, which fits into a higher price segment.

What are Realme Buds Air Pro?
This is the first time we’ve mentioned the Realme Buds Air Pro, so it’s not clear what we can expect at the moment. Since the Realme Buds Air are inspired by the Apple AirPods, it seems very likely that the Realme Buds Air Pro is a version of the AirPods Pro.
The “Pro” in the name could be for improved sound quality and the addition of silicone earbuds for better noise reduction. This is what Apple offers with its AirPods Pro, and it may be something that Realme plans to offer in its next version of the Realme Buds Air.
So far there have been rumors that the company is working on Realme Buds Air Neo, which is expected to be cheaper than the Realme Buds Air. The Realme Buds Air Neo has recently received IMDA certification. The TWS earbuds look like the AirPods, but the charging case may not support wireless charging.
Realme has already bullied that it is planning to launch a number of IoT products of 2021, such as the Realme Band, smartwatch and smart TV. So it seems likely that the company will be ready later this year to launch the successor to the Realme Buds Air.
