Samsung is rumored to launch its Galaxy S21-series flagship smartphones at a launch event on 14th January. At the same event, along with the phones, the company is also expected to launch its next-generation TWS earphones — Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro.
While we have seen a few reports related to the upcoming wireless earphones from Samsung, a new set of leaked images have surfaced online, thanks to Twitter user WalkingCat, which reveals some key details.
The leak indicates that the Galaxy Buds Pro will come with a 2-way speaker, similar to the Galaxy Buds Plus. There will also be a more powerful active noise cancellation feature, which the company is calling Intelligent Noise Cancellation.
It is also said to provide users with greater control over the experience. The earphones will reportedly have three modes — Conversation Mode, Ambient Sound Mode, and Active Noise Cancellation Mode, which will also have level controls.
Further, it appears that the TWS earphones will also have Spatial Audio and an IPX7 rating for water resistance. There’s something mentioned about the Galaxy Buds widget for Samsung devices but currently, nothing is known about this.
In the battery department, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are expected to offer eight hours of playback time and 4.5 hours of talk time on a single charge. With the charging case, the talk time can be increased to 15 hours while the playtime can be upped to 28 hours.
As for the pricing, the earphones are expected to be priced at $199 — the most expensive in the lineup. For comparison, the Galaxy Buds Plus and the Galaxy Buds Live are priced at $149 and $169 respectively.
