New Samsung Galaxy Buds Leak, Will These Beat Apple’s AirPods?


Samsung’s recently released Galaxy Buds+, which seriously impressed me last month, could already have a successor in the works according to a new leak. 

German tech site WinFuture has produced renderings of the alleged new buds based on design specifications it has obtained. Code-named “Beans” the site has mocked-up what it believes the earbuds could look like based on the information it has. 

WinFuture claims the buds are 2.8cm in length and have speaker holes that sit directly in front of your ear canal, with multiple microphones on the inside and outside of the buds.

There are apparently two small speakers to provide treble, mid and low tones (presumably in each headphone), which could tally with Samsung’s new dual driver system in the current Galaxy Buds + where each bud has a subwoofer and a tweeter. 

Having “several” microphones around the buds, as WinFuture claims, is also similar to what is currently in the Galaxy Buds+. This suggests that these new buds will feature Samsung’s improved ambient noise amplification.  

There isn’t any more detailed hardware specification information, such as battery size. But based on these images it would appear that the new buds won’t have passive noise cancellation that typically comes from rubber earbud tips. The small size also likely means smaller batteries, but with Samsung’s new minimised chipset technology that’s designed for wireless buds, that doesn’t mean they will suffer in battery life.

These are, of course, just renderings based on limited information from WinFuture’s sources. These new earbuds may never gather dust on the Best Buy’s shelves, or the eventual design of Samsung’s next Galaxy Buds could look very different to what’s on offer here. But it’s not beyond Samsung to throw out a curve ball – including launching another pair of high-end headphones months after its flagship pair were announced. 

What we do know, though, is that Samsung’s current Galaxy Buds+ will face an immediate challenge from Google’s Pixel Buds 2, which are likely to launch alongside the upcoming Pixel 4a. That is, of course, if the coronavirus outbreak doesn’t delay Google’s plans
