Samsung is due to unveil several new products in the first week of August. One of those products will be a new pair of truly wireless earbuds called the Galaxy Buds Live. The new earbuds come merely six months after the Galaxy Buds+ were released alongside the Galaxy S20 lineup.
The company has completely redesigned its earbuds this time around and has also included features that many have been waiting for. A detailed leak has now confirmed almost all details about the Galaxy Buds Live, including the fact that it features Active Noise Cancellation.
Galaxy Buds Live will be slightly more expensive
Winfuture follows its detailed Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra leaks with one for the Galaxy Buds Live. The new earbuds have a bean-shaped design that is supposedly going to allow for a more comfortable fit.
AKG-optimized sound is promised through the 12mm integrated driver. Two internal and one external microphone is also present. Each earbud weighs 5.6 grams and features a touch sensor for control.
They should last for 7.5 hours on a single charge provided that Active Noise Cancellation and Always on Mic (used for Bixby) are disabled. If both are kept on, the maximum playback time drops to 5.5 hours. The carrying case will easily be able to recharge the new earbuds multiple times, in total up to 28 hours. Merely dropping them in the case for three minutes will provide 35 minutes of playback.
The capacitive touch sensor on the earbud shell will allow users to control the volume, answer calls, skip songs, etc. To ensure a better fit, the Galaxy Buds Live will ship with ear tips in three different sizes. Given the rather unique shape of the new earbuds, customers may have to play around with the ear tips to get the perfect fit that’s both comfortable and secure.
As per the report, the suggested retail price for the Galaxy Buds Live will be 190 euro which is around $220. It’s $70 more than the $149.99 Galaxy Buds+, but then again, the new earbuds bring some very meaningful improvements.
Expect Samsung to unveil the Galaxy Buds Live on August 5 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 lineup and the Galaxy Z Fold 2. They should hit shelves shortly thereafter in Mystic Black, White, Gray and Bronze colors.
