The most current fully wireless earbuds Samsung Galaxy Buds Live debuted in August this year and impressed with their unusual bean shape. However, for those who are closer to the traditional shape of the headphones – in the spirit of Galaxy Buds, there is good news. Samsung is preparing a new model of the series – with a classic design and active noise canceling system.
The new headphones, made in the design of the Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds + will debut simultaneously with the new flagships of the Galaxy S21 line. Despite the “old” design, the headphones will undergo a number of improvements. The sound quality and the background sound mode will improve – when the headphones are transmitting sounds from the environment.
But, perhaps, the most important innovation is the emergence of an active noise reduction system. These will be Samsung’s first in-ear active noise-canceling headphones. Moreover, based on the design features, the new Galaxy Buds will better isolate external sounds than the Galaxy Buds Live.
The headphones may be called Galaxy Buds Beyond, Samsung has already registered such a designation. However, there is no complete confidence in this. The color scheme will match the company’s current wireless headphones.
Galaxy S21 Ultra might support a 120Hz refresh rate at QHD resolution!

While Samsung introduced 120Hz high refresh rate display panels with its Galaxy S20 trio, the smartphone maker limited the refresh rate to 1080p resolution. This means that users were unable to enjoy the goodness of the device’s display panel in its entirety. Well, that will change with the top-end Galaxy S21 Ultra. For those who’re unaware, the lineup will consist of three devices namely Galaxy S21, S21 Plus, and S21 Ultra. The report further adds that Galaxy S21 Ultra will retain the basic display specs of its predecessor i.e. S20 Ultra. This means that you will not find anything significant when it comes to the display panel of S20 Ultra.
If you were expecting the chaebol to move over to the 4K display panel, then you might be left disappointed. While a 4K display panel would be a significant upgrade, the display panel wouldn’t be that much practical. Firstly, the media industry still hasn’t cope up with the 4K content and it looks like that is not going to happen anytime soon. Secondly, the 4K display panel on smartphones will definitely add up some hefty bucks. There is no point in spending that extra hard-earned money on a tech that would have next to negligible practical usage.
With that said, the Galaxy S21 Ultra will definitely allow the users to enjoy a high refresh rate at QHD resolution giving you the best of both worlds. It would be interesting to see whether the same will be available for the other two devices in the lineup.
