Samsung Galaxy Buds+ closer to release

Samsung wireless Galaxy Buds+ are closer on their way to becoming official.

The latest step in their leaked journey is getting Bluetooth certification with the Chinese MIIT. The buds, model number SM-R175 (the current gen carry the SM-R170), are expected to become official alongside the Samsung Galaxy S11 series, if not sooner.

So far we’ve seen an official support page for the Galaxy Buds+ and a pair of short videos, dug up from the app code of Samsung’s SmartThings, which revealed an unchanged earbud and case design.

Rumor has it the Galaxy Buds+ will feature active noise cancellation and could very well premiere aptX support too.
