Samsung has reportedly been readying new bean-shaped earbuds dubbed the Galaxy Buds Live. While earlier rumors pointed to the device being called the Buds X, recent reports pointed towards the Live branding, and also hinted a July launch timeline for the device. Today, supposed support pages went live on Samsung’s Korean website (spotted by SamMobile), which seems to have now been pulled down.
Not much in the way of information was present on the support page. However, the model number – SM-R180 - resembled the one on a recent FCC filing for a Samsung Bluetooth headset, suggesting that the pages were placeholders for the Buds Live.
As for the device specs, the truly wireless offering from the South Korean giant is expected to sport an unusual bean-shaped design, which might also feature active noise cancellation. The rumored device is said to be launched in July for a $150 price tag, making it a much more affordable price point in comparison to the $250 AirPods Pro that sport active noise cancellation.
The device designs were also leaked recently by renowned leaker Evan Blass. The images suggest that the device would be offered in three colors, black, white, and bronze. The bronze color seems to be a theme for the company’s mid-year offerings since a ‘mystic bronze’ variant of the upcoming Galaxy Note20 was also accidentally posted by the company.
It is also possible that the bean-shaped earbuds are built using Samsung’s all-in-one power ICs that are also present in the Buds+. This would mean that the new earbuds would also boast of impressive battery life. The Buds+ boast up to 22 hours of battery life. Regardless, if the rumors are to be believed, it shouldn't be long before the device is launched.
