We’re just two days from officially knowing Samsung’s Galaxy S20 series and the company’s newest foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip. However, these smartphones aren’t everything as the company will also release new truly wireless earphones in the form of Galaxy Buds+. It’s easy to forget about them if you’re not into wireless earphones, however, the new hearables have been leaking consistently in the past weeks.
According to leaks and reports, we’re going to see new earbuds that are pretty much identical to the 2019 models. However, it will come with a substantial battery increase and better microphones. Worth noting that they will also be more expensive, at least $20 more, with a retail price of $150. Sadly, the new hearables won’t come with active noise canceling function, so they’re losing to Apple’s AirPods Pro at least in this category.
A reputable industry leakster managed to get his hands on an actual pair of the Buds+. You can see the end result through a brief unboxing video with initial impressions and a quick feature rundown.
Besides the hands-on video, there are also a few nice shots of the buds from different angles. Apparently, some European retailers actually sold him the Galaxy Buds+ early. Or at least this specific unit. This is something that already happened in the past, regardless of the company or the product. However, you can take this as Samsung’s last teaser of Galaxy Buds+ before the release.
According to reports, Samsung will offer free Galaxy Buds+ for those pre-ordering the Galaxy S20 smartphones in some regions. That’s a good deal if we consider the final price of this product. We’ll know everything about these new earphones in just two days, so stay tuned for more info about them.
