Remember the purported Galaxy Buds 2 that leaked not long ago and were tipped to appear alongside the Galaxy S21 during its Unpacked event, in black, violet, and silver colors? Well, it subseqently turned out that they could be named Galaxy Buds Pro, and even leaked in their violet and silver color form.
That much has leaked before, but now there is the label diagram of the Buds Pro case, which for the first time depicts the name in an official document. There are also colors and specs listed, too.
The FCC has made the name Buds Pro official
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro price, colors, and battery life
- Galaxy Buds Pro colors: Black, Silver, Violet
- Galaxy Buds Pro battery: 500mAh (case), 60mAh (buds), 22 hours battery life (ANC on, with cradle)
- Galaxy Buds Pro specs: active noise cancellation (ANC), IP68 water-resistance, Bluetooth 5.1, touch controls, USB-C fast charging, and wireless charging.
- Galaxy Buds Pro price: $199
500mah in the case, 120mAh in the buds, or a battery life as long as the Buds Live
“Samsung used the name Plus or Live because they couldn’t improve the water resistance of these,” tip insiders for this year’s Galaxy Buds+ and Buds Live bean-shaped models with active noise cancellation, but, evidently, it has now figured out how to supply both ANC and a higher waterproof rating for the Buds Pro.
The fact, however, that the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are shipping with both active noise cancellation like the Live models, and activity-oriented features and design like the Plus version, however, means that these could be a bit more expensive than what Samsung used to give for free with a flagship preorder. Still, even if it does an accessory credit like it did with its last few models, it will still be worth to offset the lion’s share of the Galaxy Buds Pro price while you are shopping for the Galaxy S21, S21+, or the flagship S21 Ultra.
