Galaxy Buds+ firmware update rolls out weeks before Buds Pro launch

Last updated: December 21st, 2020 at 15:40 UTC+01:00

The Galaxy Buds+ will soon be succeeded by yet another model of wireless earbuds from Samsung but that hasn’t stopped the OEM from supporting the Buds+ with new firmware updates. After all, it’s been less than 12 months since the earbuds were released and they’re nowhere close to end-if-life.

The latest firmware update for the Galaxy Buds+ weighs only 1.38MB and it carries version R175XXU0ATL1. It’s a small update, obviously, and the changelog confirms further that there are no new features added with this latest release. Instead, firmware version R175XXU0ATL1 is all about improving system stability and reliability.

So, if you’ve been experiencing stability or reliability issues with the Galaxy Buds+ then this new firmware update will hopefully going address them. And although we wouldn’t hold our breath for new features to be added, do let us know in the comment section if you notice anything new or out of the ordinary once you apply the latest firmware update.

As always, you can download and install the new firmware for the Galaxy Buds+ from the Galaxy Wearable app on your connected smartphone. If the update is available in your region for your Buds, you should see an update notification right on the Galaxy Wearable home screen. Tap the notification and then tap Download and install.
