Update: The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ have appeared on the MIIT certification website of China.
Original story follows…
Samsung is soon expected to unveil a new pair of true wireless earbuds, called Galaxy Buds+. The true wireless earbuds had been spotted on the FCC website earlier this month, hinting at an imminent launch. Less than a week before CES 2020 kicks off in Las Vegas, we have now spotted the Galaxy Buds+ on the Bluetooth SIG website.
The SM-R175 listing on the Bluetooth Launch Studio website confirms the earbuds will indeed debut as Galaxy Buds+. Additionally, it confirms support for the Bluetooth 5.0 standard. Just as you would expect, however, no other details regarding the upcoming wireless earbuds are revealed by the listing.
Going by a video of the Galaxy Buds+ that was discovered by the folks at XDA Developers within the SmartThings app recently, the Galaxy Buds+ will come with a near-identical design to the current Galaxy Buds. The same goes for the charging case that will come bundled along with the earbuds.
If rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy Buds+ could feature active noise cancellation, making it a solid rival to the Apple AirPods Pro. However, that hasn’t been confirmed yet, so we will have to wait until more information surfaces online. Samsung is likely to introduce the Galaxy Buds+ at CES next week, alongside a host of other new products. The company is expected to launch two new smartphones as well at the upcoming event: Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite.
