Last week, we had exclusively revealed that Samsung is working on new Galaxy Buds earphones that feature active noise cancellation (ANC). Later, it was revealed that they would be launched as Galaxy Buds Pro. Now, the upcoming earphones have received an important certification.
A new Samsung device with model number SM-R190 has received certification from the FCC. The model number SM-R190 is associated with the Galaxy Buds Pro. A diagram of the case for these new earbuds is also included in the certification documents. The diagram reveals that the case will have a rounded square shape, similar to the Galaxy Buds Live. It will also feature a 500mAh battery, a USB Type-C port, and 2.5W charging.
The FCC certification of the Galaxy Buds Pro means that the wireless earbuds are almost ready for launch. They are expected to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy S21 series in January 2021. The Galaxy Buds Pro would not replace the Galaxy Buds or the Galaxy Buds+. Rather, they would be an addition to Samsung's current lineup of truly wireless earphones.
Our exclusive report revealed that Samsung's upcoming wireless earbuds have an in-ear canal design, improved audio quality, and improved Ambient Mode. We can also expect them to feature Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC, sweat resistance, touch controls, and Qi wireless charging.
