AKG is seemingly working on a new pair of wireless headphones called the Y600NC, and they might be just around the corner. Indirectly confirmed previously by the Korean company via the Smart Things app, the AKG Y600NC doesn’t have an exact launch date, but support for the new model appears to have been added to the AKG Headphone mobile app. It was recently updated on the Play Store with a new description for the unreleased AKG Y600NC, hinting that the product could launch very soon.
What’s exciting about the so-called AKG Y600NC is the history of the Y500NC and how the new model could follow a similar path. The AKG Y500KG has been used by Samsung as an incentive and was included as a freebie numerous times alongside various Galaxy smartphones in different markets, including the Galaxy S8 and S9 series, the Galaxy S10e, and different Galaxy A (2019) models.
The AKG Y600NC could become an incentive for Samsung’s 2020 smartphones
Based on preliminary information and the images we have so far, the AKG Y600NC should refine the existing Y500NC formula while boasting larger earcups with memory foam cushioning and zinc-alloy hinge rotators.
The official product description which appears to have been mistakenly added to the AKG Headphone app on the Play Store explains how the AKG Y600NC should provide up 25 hours of music playback via Bluetooth with Active Noise Cancellation enabled.
Unsurprisingly, the description also confirms that the upcoming headphones will be fully supported by Samsung’s ecosystem and the Bixby platform.
The app description does not include any availability and pricing details, but there is a possibility that the AKG Y600NC might be launched early next year (or even earlier) just in time to become an incentive for the Galaxy S11 and Galaxy A (2020) series.
