Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Specs Leaked Ahead of Launch, Claims 28-hour Battery Life, ANC and More

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is set to launch alongside the Galaxy Watch 4 on August 11, and its leaked specs suggest an incremental upgrade.


The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is slated to launch in about one week, and by now, we’ve seen a fair bit about its design as well as pricing in leak reports. Now, a fresh tip from Twitter user Snoopy Tech has claimed to reveal all key specifications of the upcoming true wireless earbuds. The leak suggests a rather incremental upgrade for the Galaxy Buds 2 over its predecessors, and isn’t particularly anything beyond what we would have expected to see from Samsung’s latest earbuds.

According to the leak, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 will feature active noise cancellation (ANC), along with an ambient noise mode that would aid conversations without needing to take the earbuds off. Wireless connectivity will be powered via Bluetooth 5.2, while the audio quality support, Dolby certification or any additional audio enhancements have not been mentioned yet. It is also not clear if the Galaxy Buds 2 would feature gesture based controls and wear sensors for automatically pausing and playing music.

However, the leak does state that the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 will come with a glossy finish, and may feature five colour variants at launch. In terms of battery life, the earbuds will seemingly offer 18 hours of playback with active noise cancellation turned on, with five hours of playback via earbuds. Without ANC, the earbuds would last for 28 hours, with eight hours of earbuds playback. The charging case will seemingly feature a 472mAh battery, with each earbud featuring a 61mAh battery.

The charging case is also tipped to support Qi wireless charging, and also support quick charging of the earbuds. According to the tip, the earbuds will be able to offer 55 minutes of playback with 5 minutes of charging time. In terms of audio, the Galaxy Buds 2 will apparently feature dual-speaker configuration, with a 6.5mm tweeter and an 11mm woofer in each driver. Finally, there may also be IPX7 splash and dust resistance with the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, hence aiding durability for gym or outdoor usage.

So far, pricing is expected to be around EUR 149 (approx. Rs 11,500), although the exact India pricing may vary. More details should come our way soon, with its official launch slated to be just a week from now.
