Samsung has been making truly wireless earbuds for a while now and with the rising demand for TWS earphones, the brand is expected to expand its lineup with the Galaxy Buds Plus that should debut alongside the Galaxy S20 lineup on February 11. Now, we have another set of renders that show the Sky Blue, Black and White colors of the earphones from multiple angles.
We already know the Buds Plus won’t feature active noise cancellation (ANC) but will come with a larger battery than their predecessor. In addition, there are seemingly no differences in terms of design.
A recent Strategy Analytics report revealed Samsung placed third in the global TWS headset market for 2019, trailing Xiaomi and Apple. Samsung will surely aim to grab a larger chunk of the TWS market in 2020 so the new Buds Plus will have high expectations.
According to speculations, the new Buds Plus will be 50% more expensive than the original Galaxy Buds which would put them in the $225 range and in the company of premium offerings like the AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3.
Samsung Galaxy Buds+ to come with a bigger battery
Samsung Galaxy Buds+ is expected to be part of the Unpacked event on February 11, when the new Galaxy S20 lineup is going to be unveiled. We already heard that the new earbuds will skip the active noise canceling, and today another source confirmed this information.
The Galaxy Buds have 58 mAh batteries, allowing for around 4 hours of continuous playback. The report suggests the Galaxy Buds+ will have up to 85 mAh capacity and could improve the single use up to 12 hours, which would be a massive jump.
Another issue from the current earbuds is the call quality – Samsung never managed to fix it, even with numerous updates – the other side still hears you like you are underwater and a lot of the surrounding sound made it through. The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ will allgedly have four microphones, instead of two to fix that specific issue. Whether or not this will actually work, we will determine once the Buds+ are out next month
