Samsung will hold its Unpacked event where it is expected to announce a lineup of new devices, including an updated Galaxy Buds2 model. In the latest version of the Samsung Galaxy Wearables app, a new method for entering the Galaxy Buds2 can be seen.
In addition to showing up the in the companion app, the pairing screen shows that there’s a new method for entering the buds into pairing mode starting with the Galaxy Buds2. Rather than putting both earbuds in and holding the touchpads to enter pairing mode, the app instructs that the Galaxy Buds2 can be set to pairing mode without taking them out of their charging case. You need to open the case and hold both earbuds for three seconds.
The latest version of the Wearable app is now available to download from the Galaxy (app) Store at the time of this writing.
As per rumors and reports, the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 will feature 20 hours of battery life with active noise cancellation activated, and will be available in five colors as revealed through a previous Wearable app update. Their design will be like that of the Galaxy Buds Pro, down to the squarish shaped case with rounded corners.
Samsung will announce the Galaxy Buds2, Galaxy Z Fold3, Galaxy ZFlip3, Galaxy Watch4, and Galaxy Watch4 Classic during the company’s Unpacked event taking place next week on August 11. The Buds2 are rumored to cost around €170 as recently rumored in EU.
