Samsung To Launch New Galaxy Buds X To Compete With Apple’s AirPods

Samsung’s true wireless earbuds have been in reports for quite a while now. It was awarded FCC certification (Federal Communications Commission) on July 8 . Reports suggest that the company is expected to launch the new pair of wireless earphones ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event to be held on August 5. For that reason, we can expect the earbuds to launch by the end of this month alongside the new Galaxy Watch 3.

The most interesting part about the Buds X has to be its bean-shaped design, made to fit perfectly in your ears. Images surfacing show three color variants that the earbuds will be made available in – black, white and a chic rose gold color. The FCC certificate reveals that they will measure approximately 26 x 15 x 14 mm and weight about 5 grams. Each bud feature two microphones, which signals toward noise- cancellation tech, as well as the ability to take calls and support for voice command. It even appears each earbud has two contact points for charging, and the case has two LED indicators to communicate headset battery life. The product will be sold at a price similar to Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, which were priced at $149. 

The original Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds plus launched in March 2019 and February 2020 respectively, failed to outperform Apple’s AirPods or AirPods Pro in terms of its capabilities and user experience. To see if the new Samsung Galaxy Buds X could challenge Apple’s Airpods, we will have to wait till the final launch.
