OnePlus is offering fans a chance to try out the unannounced OnePlus Buds Pro true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones and OnePlus Nord 2 5G smartphone. OnePlus' The Lab programme is looking for 10 applicants each for the two products who can review them and give their feedback. The company recently announced that the OnePlus Nord 2 5G will be unveiled in India and Europe on July 22 and the OnePlus Buds Pro will be announced alongside. As of now, there is no information available on the OnePlus Buds Pro.
OnePlus Nord 2 5G, as the name suggests, will be the successor to the OnePlus Nord from July last year. The company has confirmed that the phone will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI SoC, an upgraded version of the standard MediaTek Dimensity 1200. The OnePlus Buds Pro will succeed the OnePlus Buds and OnePlus Buds Z, and may come with active noise cancellation. Both devices will be launched on July 22.

OnePlus runs its The Lab programme often where it gives people the opportunity to try an upcoming or newly released product, and review it. The best reviewers get to keep the product. This time, an FAQ taking about if the reviewers get to keep the devices says “Yes, provided both reviews are completed and submitted on time.”
Everyone is eligible to apply except those who previously participated in either the OnePlus Nord 2 or OnePlus Buds Pro beta test programmes. The reviews will be judged based on the writing and photography skills, tech gadget experience, review history, blogging, and other content created by the applicants.
