- Samsung is apparently working on a pair of true wireless earbuds called the Galaxy Buds 2.
- The new earbuds have been mentioned in the code of the Galaxy Wearable app.
Samsung is reportedly preparing a new pair of Galaxy Buds to add to its existing lineup of true wireless earbuds. An APK teardown of the Galaxy Wearable app by Android Police has revealed that Samsung is possibly readying the Galaxy Buds 2.
The Galaxy Wearable app is a bridge between Samsung’s wearables and phones. Each time the company launches a new wearable, it has to update the app with support for said device. This is why it makes all the more sense that the so-called Galaxy Buds 2 are in the pipeline.
The teardown also shows that the earbuds are codenamed “berry” and that they’ll be able to connect to multiple devices. The Galaxy Buds Live, Galaxy Buds Plus, and Galaxy Buds Pro are also mentioned in the APK file, suggesting that the Buds 2 are indeed a new pair and not related to any older models.
Furthermore, the code lines also suggest that the Galaxy Buds 2 will be able to connect to non-Samsung devices.
There’s not much else to go on apart from the aforementioned details. However, we do expect the new Galaxy Buds to carry some trademark features of the Buds Pro, including Active Noise-Cancelling, wireless charging, and more.
As for when the Galaxy Buds 2 will launch, we have no idea. The Galaxy Buds Pro are fairly new, but Samsung has a bunch of things left to unpack this year, so we may see them in the coming months.
