Galaxy Buds Live move closer to launch, appear in FCC database
Last month, we had exclusively reported that the Galaxy Buds Live and the Galaxy Watch 3 will be launched in July, ahead of the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 20. In line with our report, the Galaxy Buds Live wireless earphones seem to have passed through the FCC certification process and inched closer to the launch.
FCC listing for a device with model number SM-R180 has been discovered, and it is being believed that it corresponds to the Galaxy Buds Live. The filing mentions that the certified device is a Bluetooth headset and that it is too small to include an FCC label, which leads us to believe that it is most probably the Galaxy Buds Live. In comparison, the model number of the Galaxy Buds Plus was SM-R175.
Not much is known about the Galaxy Buds Live except that they’re bean-shaped. They were originally leaked three months ago, and an image asset named ‘buds_live’ was uncovered in the Galaxy Wearable app last month. It is being expected that they feature active noise cancellation and a built-in music player. The upcoming wireless earbuds could be launched in three colors: Black, Copper, and White.
The Galaxy Buds Live could be priced under $150 and could be targeted towards a different set of the audience when compared to the Galaxy Buds Plus.
