    Samsung is rolling out a new firmware update for the Gear IconX (2018) today. It's a minor update that brings Bluetooth improvements. The update is now available for download and Gear IconX (2018) owners can get it right away.

    The Gear IconX (2018) activity tracking wireless earbuds were launched earlier this year. They're quite similar to the original Gear IconX but with slight improvements that make the earbuds more ergonomic and lightweight.

    Gear IconX (2018) Update

    Measuring 18.9 x 21.8 x 22.8 mm, the new Gear IconX (2018) weighs just 8 grams per earbud. They feature 4GB of internal storage. The 82mAh battery promises music playback of up to 7 hours and a talk time of up to 4 hours. That's a significant improvement over the original Gear IconX.

    The new earbuds are also capable of launching Bixby when they're paired with a supported device like the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8. They are capable of activity tracking. The data is then synced with the Samsung Health platform.

    Samsung is rolling out firmware version R140XXUAQJ2 for the Gear IconX (2018) today. The changelog mentions that this update has “improved stabilizing Bluetooth connection.”

    Samsung has started selling the Gear IconX (2018) in a handful of markets. It's available in black, gray and pink colors for 229.99 euro.
