While most of the hype surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event is understandably centered around the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Z Flip4, Samsung will be announcing several gadgets on stage. One of the anticipated new products is a new pair of wireless headphones and the folks over at WinFuture got an official looking image of the Galaxy Buds2 Pro as well as their detailed specifications.
The Galaxy Buds2 Pro are pictured in their Zenith Gray color, and they look similar to the original Buds Pro, albeit with an almost completely matte finish. The leaked spec sheet suggests 10mm drivers, Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity and multiple microphones on each bud for optimal voice recording and noise reduction. Samsung is expected to bring “Intelligent Active Noise Cancellation” to the Buds2 Pro, which should block out even more external noise than older Galaxy Buds models.
The Galaxy Buds2 Pro is also said to bring 360-degree audio for a more immersive experience in supported apps and HD voice recording for clearer calls. The source also mentions an IPX7 rating just like on the original Galaxy Buds Pro, covering water immersion up to 1 meter high for half an hour. Battery life is rated at 8 hours of playback time on a single charge and up to 29 hours thanks to the charging case. The cover will be able to be charged wirelessly as well as via its USB-C port.
The report speculates that the Buds2 Pro will go on open sale from August 26. They will be available in Zenith Grey, Zenith White and Bora Purple colors with retail prices of €229 in Europe and $229 in the US.
