The truly wireless headphone game has a couple of contenders. While Apple does lead the market share, other players like Samsung and Google have introduced their products as well. In my opinion, the direct competitor and substitute for Apple’s Airpods are the Galaxy Buds. Now though, in light of recent leaks as indicated on Sammobile, there is a new rendition to compete with the Apple Airpods Pro.
About the Leaks
According to the article, @rquandt has leaked certain live photos which showcase the retail packaging for the upcoming Galaxy Buds+. This is a week prior to the actual anticipated launch of the device. These photos do feature the front and the backside of the device. On this backside, we can see the detailed specs of these headphones. The brightest thing that shines brightest is the battery life of the earbuds. According to the photos, the Galaxy Buds+ are set to have a huge jump in battery life. This would be up to 11 hours of listening time. This clearly shows that the earbuds are directly competing with Apple’s set of “Pro” models. This battery bump is quite the feature considering the fact that it jumps up from about 5 hours to 11 hours. This is due to the new battery, an 85mAh cell. This cell is a Samsung proprietary battery. Again, this is just based on speculation, according to the article.
Apart from the battery life, it is also interesting to know that the earbuds would feature a new dual-driver setup. It would obviously provide a boost in audio performance and would give a “thump” to an already good listening experience. There was no mention of any active noise cancellation present but we would know for sure at the launch. There will also be a new Sky Blue colour option so that’s good to have.
Wait till the actual launch to know more about these earbuds and how they would compete with Apple’s flagship truly wireless earbuds.
