Leaked Samsung Galaxy Buds+ renders show off design, launch colors
Samsung is going to announce an improved version of its popular Galaxy Buds earphones at next month’s Unpacked event. The upgrades are understood to be minimal and, thanks to leaked renders, it appears the external differences are too.

Three colors but no major design changes 


Courtesy of Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice, the images show that Samsung is planning to offers its new wireless earphones, the Galaxy Buds+, in three colors options – Black, Light Blue, and White – at launch.

The earbuds themselves are identical to the original pair and the charging case looks pretty similar too, although there’s now a mysterious physical button below the LED indicator. It’s use case remains unclear at the moment. 

Justifying the ‘Plus’ branding on these earphones should be a significantly larger battery. Samsung is reportedly planning a 50% increase that could push battery life from just 6 hours on a single charge to an incredible 12 hours.

Further improvements to the audio experience are also to be expected, albeit without any major changes. Support for active noise cancelation was previously rumored but Samsung appears to have skipped the feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are expected to debut on February 11 alongside the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Z Flip. Ishan Agarwal believes the earbuds will cost around 50% more than their predecessors, which means a $195 price tag might be planned.

So does this indicate the S20 will come in light blue?

Please make the mic/mics like the ones on airpod pro's. Right now they have unmatched call quality.

I have both airpod pro's and galaxy buds. When I take phone calls on the pro's no one complains about background noise not being able to hear me etc. I take the same call in the same environment with the buds and got those very complaints. The pro's have more mics than the buds. Hopefully the new buds have that stellar call quality.

Nice. I like that you based the comparison off of your own experience & not popular opinion. The only place I got a complaint about not hearing me on my Buds was at the mall.

The only place I got complaints about my pro's is no where. I tried the buds in multiple places and environments still the same complaint. Never had one complaint with the pro's. And the power beat pro's are the same way. No one complains of background noise not being able to hear me etc. Buds+ need to bring it!

IMO they'll release "Galaxy Buds Ultra" later with ANC for around $200-250

The button is most likely used to help the lid stay closed. I've had my bud case open once or twice on accident. The iconx has the button feature, so it'd be nothing new.
