Next-gen Galaxy Buds to offer active noise cancellation for less than $150
Active noise cancellation is finally on the way
A South Korean publication today claims in a report that the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Buds, which are codenamed ‘Bean’ and leaked only last week, will feature the increasingly popular active noise cancellation (ANC) feature as standard.
The latter is typically associated with a silicone tip design to ensure maximum isolation from outside noises, something that is already used on the Galaxy Buds lineup. However, Samsung is expected to ditch it on the next-gen product, which is why today’s revelation may come as a surprise.
How the Seoul-based company plans on implementing the feature remains to be seen, but the all-new design could be key. While it doesn’t use silicone tips, its elongated shape does seem to isolate much of the ear canal.
Samsung has fitted each next-gen Galaxy Bud with three microphones and two speakers, one of which acts as a subwoofer to ensure a decent bass. Charging happens magnetically via the two pins that connect to a compact charging cradle that is approximately 26mm thick.
The new Galaxy Buds could offer 11h of use
The next-gen Galaxy Buds ‘Bean’ are still undergoing engineering verification tests (EVT) and that means some details are still subject to change. Samsung is said to be looking into reducing the size a little, although the design shouldn’t change too much from what is shown off in the renders seen above and below.
Next-gen Samsung Galaxy Buds 'Bean' release date and price
The kidney bean-like Samsung Galaxy Buds are expected to arrive in the coming months. No concrete timeline has been provided yet, but an unveiling alongside the Galaxy Fold 2 and Galaxy Note 20 at the August Unpacked event seems very likely.
There is also a good chance Samsung is going to offer these new earbuds as gifts for those who pre-order those flagships. That means the launch could coincide with that of the Galaxy Note 20.
