The company’s collab with K-pop superstars, BTS, paid off, big time. It seems like the South Korean tech giant may be looking to prolong that cooperation because of it, at least according to Ishan Agarwal.
The tipster hinted that a new collab may take place. What’s interesting, is that both Fila and Samsung have BTS as their brand ambassadors, which may have something to do with the presumption that a new collab is coming.
In any case, regarding these new earbuds. They are the exact same Samsung Galaxy Buds Live earbuds you’re used to, but with Fila branding. The official name of these is ‘Samsung x Fila Galaxy Buds Live’.
Fila-branded Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are based on the Mystic White model
They’re based on the Mystic White model, and come with Fila’s logo on them. There are actually two bespoke cases included in the retail package, and one does look like a shoe box.
You’ll also notice that a small Fila sneaker keychain is attached to the case fo the earbuds. It seems like Samsung is planning to produce only 2,000 units of these special edition earbuds.
They will launch today in South Korea, on the Kakao Shopping Live channel, and a wider online launch will follow tomorrow. More information should be available via Samsung’s and Fila’s websites.
We’re still not sure if these earbuds will become available outside of Korea, though. We’ll find out more in the near future, quite probably, as Samsung is unlikely to share such info during the Korea launch.
Samsung initially announced the Galaxy Buds Live earbuds last month. We reviewed them shortly after that, and you can check out that review by clicking here.
The Galaxy Buds Live are quite an impressive pair of TWS earbuds
The Galaxy Buds Live are actually quite impressive in a number of ways. The battery life is really good, while the sound quality is also impressive. There are some issues there, though, so check out the full review for more information.
It will be interesting to see how well will these Fila-branded Samsung Galaxy Buds Live do. The BTS-branded products were selling like hotcakes for the company.
Truth be said, these are all limited products, Samsung is only planning to produce 2,000 of them, so selling all of them is probably guaranteed. We do hope that Samsung will reveal how long it took for them all to sell out.
