The Galaxy Buds 2 are expected to be officially unveiled during Samsung’s next Galaxy Unpacked event on August 11. However, the upcoming truly wireless earphones have been leaked extensively, and their full specifications, colors, and pricing have already been revealed. Now, the Galaxy Buds 2 have been unboxed, as seen in a new video.
Samsung’s upcoming true wireless earbuds feature a design that’s similar to the Galaxy Buds Pro. And it is a departure from the design seen with the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Buds+. The South Korean firm has equipped the Galaxy Buds 2 with a Bluetooth 5.2 chip, a dual-driver setup (11m woofer and 6.3mm tweeter), and six microphones. They feature ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) and a transparency mode.
The Galaxy Buds 2 feature an IPX7 rating for water resistance. The earbuds come packed with a 61mAh battery, while their case has a 472mAh battery. These earbuds can last up to 8 hours on a single charge with ANC turned off, and combined with the case, they can last up to 20 additional hours. With ANC turned on, the Galaxy Buds 2 can last up to 5 hours (13 hours with the case).
The case features a rounded square design, a USB Type-C port, and Qi wireless charging. The Galaxy Buds 2 will be available in four colors: Black, Olive Green, Purple, and White. They are expected to cost $150 and will compete with the likes of AirPods, Beats Studio Buds, and OnePlus Buds Pro.
