Realme's Apple AirPods look-alike Buds Air's price leaked ahead of 17 December launch

While Realme Buds Air's design is heavily inspired by Apple AirPods', the earphones will reportedly only cost Rs 4,999.

During the Realme X2 Pro launch in India last month, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth teased new truly wireless earphones, that looked an awful lot like the Apple AirPods. Last week, Realme India revealed on Twitter that these new truly wireless earphones will be called Realme Buds Air and will launch in India on 17 December.

Realme also teased that the Buds Air will come in a black, yellow and a white colour variant. (Realme could add colour options to these earphones, but their shameless resemblance to AirPods is so difficult to get over.)
