More photos of the rapidly anticipated Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have leaked, showing the design of the bean-shaped genuine wireless earbuds, as well as some of the colors we can expect them to come in.
Noted physician Evan Blass posted a set of two images to his Patreon account, which was quickly retrieved by 9to5Google – and they give us our most detailed look at the upcoming AirPods competitors so far.
The pictures show the buds in white, black and a rather chic bronze color, with the unique kidney bean shape that looks very different from most wireless earplugs on the market right now.
These colors match images from Samsung Galaxy Note 20; We expect the new wireless earbuds to be sold along with Note 20 at Samsung̵
However, we hope that Samsung Galaxy Buds Live will be announced soon thereafter; A report from SamMobile has suggested that they will be launched in July.
Possible noise cancellation
We also got our first look at Galaxy Bud’s Live Charging Case, which has a rounded design and what it looks like an LED battery indicator light on the front.
Based on the images, each ear protector plays two microphones – which can be an indication of noise-canceling technology as well as the ability to use these knobs to make calls and call your device’s voice assistant.
Noise Cancellation is a feature we would love to see from Galaxy Buds Live; After all, we were disappointed when their predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, was launched without interrupting noise and it could make them a compelling rival for the AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3.
We also hope to see some great training features from the new earbuds. Trademark registration discovered earlier this year (via Lets Go Digital) revealed some of the features we might see from Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, including “software to measure distance, speed, time, changes in heart rate, activity level, calories burned. “
It’s worth remembering that the specifications described in the trademark registration do not always show up in the end product, but these biometric sensors can make the new Galaxy Buds a fantastic pair of running headphones like Powerbeats Pro.
There’s no word on pricing yet, but the Galaxy Buds Plus went on sale in March for $ 149.99 / £ 159/299, so we expect something similar when the next headphones come.
That figure has been backed up by SamMobile, which reported that the knobs will cost “under $ 150”.
Samsung users may also be in line with a discount according to the SamMobile report that says, “Of course, we can expect prayer-shaped Galaxy Buds Live to be offered for free or at a reduced price as part of pre-order bonuses for Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Fold 2 “.
Hopefully, we won’t wait too long for all of these rumors to be confirmed or punished – and with the rumors of AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro Lite warming, Samsung may have a real wireless battle on its hands by the end of 2020.
