The upcoming Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have now made a semi-official appearance, leaked to the company’s support pages. Specifically, the gadget has leaked to support pages in the UK, Germany, India, Malaysia, and a few others. The pages don’t confirm any specifications or features, although they do reportedly confirm the model number SM-R180. The FAQ details are kept vague, applicable more generally to Samsung Galaxy wearables.
There aren’t any new images or other information associated with the page either. So the new pages appear primarily to be set up in preparation for launch, which is expected within the month.
What are Samsung Galaxy Buds Live
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are Samsung’s next-gen take on true wireless audio. The shape of the device is among its most distinct features. Designed similar to a kidney bean with dual-speakers and three mics, the device abandons silicone tips and nubs. That’s presumably because they’ll be small enough and properly shaped to stay in-ear comfortably and provide great audio without the additional support.
That design will be available in Black, White, and Mystic Bronze — with the latter pictured above.
Active noise cancellation is expected to be a part of the package, as is a battery life that alligns with previous releases. The current expectation is 11-hours on a single charge. If the company follows those releases in other way, these will also feature convenient wireless charging. Pricing has been reported at around $150, once the device hits shelves.
When are Samsung Galaxy Buds Live coming?
Now, Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have already leaked a number of times extensively, as indicated above. And they’ve already been spotted passing through a number of certifications. In at least some cases, those seem to confirm incoming market releases at least as well as this latest leak. But none of this is necessarily unexpected.
Samsung will be hosting a Galaxy Unpacked event on August 5. These bean-shaped earbuds are expected to make an appearance at that event. There’s even been an apparently official promotional video leaked in advance of that. Its appearance on support pages, in combination with all of the other leaks, only seems to confirm that date.
