During the past few years, the market for truly wireless earbuds has exploded, thanks in part to the death of the headphone jack. Samsung is also preparing to launch a new set of Galaxy Buds, the Galaxy Buds+, ahead of its Galaxy S20 reveal, and some renders leaked out this week to show them off.
Rumors of upgraded Galaxy Buds have been swirling for months and it definitely looks like we’ll see these coming alongside the Galaxy S20 series at this point.
MySmartPrice released photos of the Galaxy Buds+ today to show this set of truly wireless earbuds ‘ very familiar design. The new model is visually essentially identical to the originals that were launched with the Galaxy S10. They’ll come in three colors this time around including white, black, and pale blue. Apparently all of those colors will be available at launch.
The only notable change to the physical hardware here is what seems to be an inside set of physical buttons. What those buttons do, however, is vague. An earbud locator, maybe? That’s just speculation, but this is the only use I can think of within the case for two buttons.
What more are you to expect from the new Galaxy Buds+? SamMobile announced last week that only slight changes will be made to this upgraded model. It includes improved battery life, better call quality using four microphones on the earbuds, as well as some improvements to the overall sound quality. Like Apple’s AirPods Pro, there will be no active noise cancellation.
