The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are expected to be making an appearance during the Unpacked event alongside the company’s foldable phones. But these days, it would be a miracle if products like these do not get at least some of their details leaked before the official reveal. And that’s exactly what happened to the new TWS buds by the South Korean tech giant.’
WinFuture reports that among the features of the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are what is called “Intelligent Active Noise Cancellation”. Which sounds like just another fancy name for ANC tech, but according to the report, this tech is able to suppress “even the loudest ambient noise”. That’s a pretty bold claim, and one that’s desperately asking to be tested.
Other details that the report claims the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro will have include the expected ambient mode, and a more specialised conversation mode. This automatically activates ambient mode when it detects the wearer’s voice. Beyond that, the buds will also have 360-degree audio and an IPX7 rating. Producing the sounds are 10mm drivers in each bud.
The report states that the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro makes use of Bluetooth 5.3. As for battery life, they able to run for eight hours on their own, and up to 29 hours with the charging case, which is itself charged using USB-C.
For colour options, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro will reportedly come in three colours, which are Zenith Grey, Zenith White, and the very redundantly named Bora Purple. Prices are stated to be EUR229 (~RM1045). Considering this leak comes as part of the official marketing material, chances are they are accurate. But with the unpacked event less than a week away, it won’t be too long before we know for sure. Hopefully local pricing and availability details will be revealed shortly after.
Finally, confirming that the buds will be available locally at some point, is the fact that they have been listed on SIRIM’s database. While the database does not outright name the product, is bears the SM-R510 model number which has been associated with the TWS buds.
