Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Buds were recently certified by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US. A support for the Bluetooth headset has now gone live on the Samsung Russia website, hinting at an impending launch.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Expected to Launch Next Month
As you would expect, the SM-R170 support page on Samsung’s Russian website does not include any actual information regarding the Galaxy Buds just yet. However, the addition of the support page makes it quite clear that Samsung is planning to roll out the Galaxy Buds in Russia and possibly a few other markets very soon. Sadly, however, there is very little that we know about the Galaxy Buds currently. Previous leaks have suggested the Bluetooth headset will include an impressive 8GB of internal storage, twice as much as the Gear IconX (2018). In terms of design, the Galaxy Buds are expected to be similar to the Gear IconX, although no actual images have surfaced online yet. The FCC filings only showed the charging cradle that will be bundled along with the earbuds.
The device was also certified by the Bluetooth SIG recently, confirming support for the Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy standard. It is expected to be available in White, Yellow, and Black color options at launch. Thanks to the upgraded internal storage, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and other upgrades, the Galaxy Buds will probably be at least slightly more expensive than the current Gear IconX (2018).
The Galaxy Buds will likely be introduced alongside the Galaxy S10 trio at the company’s Unpacked event in San Francisco next month. Apart from Galaxy Buds, Samsung may also introduce the Galaxy Sport smartwatch and the Galaxy Fit fitness tracker at the same event. Samsung’s first Galaxy Unpacked event of the year will begin at 11:00 AM PT at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. As always, the event will be live streamed on the company’s website.
