Samsung’s new truly wireless Galaxy Buds+ are making their way quickly to tick all the boxes to become official. The latest step given by the South-Korean company was getting Bluetooth certification with the Chinese MIIT. The buds, model number SM-R175 (the current-gen carry the SM-R170). The new hearables may become official alongside the Samsung Galaxy S11 series. However, considering the number of leaks and certifications we wouldn’t be surprised to see an early release for them.

The Galaxy Buds+ were already mentioned in the official support page which has been recently found. Furthermore, they appeared in a couple of leaked videos dug up from the app code of Samsung’s SmartThings. According to them, we are looking into a new set of hearables with an unchanged design.
According to the rumors, Galaxy Buds+ will come with active noise cancellation and aptX support. However, we should take this with a pinch or two of salt. After all, there are no many details about the actual specifications and features supported by the new pair of hearables.
If they are indeed coming with the new Galaxy S11 flagship smartphones, then we’re looking into a February release. Samsung will skip the CES 2020 for releasing them during the MWC 2020 season.
