Samsung Might Soon Release Galaxy Buds+ to Compete with AirPods Pro

Samsung Galaxy Buds

The only mainstream rival to the Apple AirPods are the Samsung Galaxy Buds. However, with the launch of second-generation AirPods and the new AirPods Pro, the earbuds from Samsung don’t seem all that appealing now. Well, the South Korean tech giant is set to release a new pair of truly wireless earbuds, most probably a successor to the Galaxy Buds, to make a comeback against Apple.

As you might know, the Galaxy Buds that are currently on sale worldwide come with the model number SM-R170. Now, the South Korean division of Samsung has updated its website with support pages for a product with model number SM-R175, suggesting that it is an upgraded version of the Galaxy Buds. According to various reports online, the SM-R175 will be called the Galaxy Buds+.

Unfortunately, the support page of the allegedly upcoming earbuds from Samsung doesn’t reveal any information regarding the product. That being said, just like successors to any truly wireless earbuds, you can expect the Galaxy Buds+ to come with improved battery life, better sound quality, and more reliable connectivity compared to its predecessor.

The truly wireless earbuds from Samsung are also said to feature Active Noise Cancellation, something that is already present in the AirPods Pro. If that turns out to be true, the flagship truly wireless earbuds from the Cupertino-based tech giant will finally have a mainstream rival. However, we can’t say anything for sure if Samsung would bring the product to the market.

Samsung had launched the Galaxy Buds alongside the Galaxy S10 line up of smartphones. So, it is very likely that the company will launch the Galaxy Buds+ with the Galaxy S11 line up. Usually, the launch of the new S series handsets from the brand takes place in February. Therefore, you can expect the Galaxy Buds+ to make their debut around the same time.
