We recently learned that Samsung is working on the successor of the Galaxy Buds and they’ll be dubbed as the Galaxy Buds+. Leaks and rumors so far suggest that it will have better battery backup and improved sound quality. However, its exact specifications weren’t known. Well, thanks to the popular leakster, Evan Blass, we now know what the Galaxy Buds+ will have to offer, as he has posted a complete spec sheet of the upcoming truly wireless earphones from Samsung.
According to the leaked specifications, the Galaxy Buds+ will have larger batteries inside the earbuds and the case – 85mAh and 270mAh respectively – as opposed to 58mAh and 252mAh that in the Galaxy Buds. The larger batteries, as you might expect, offer increased battery life. The Galaxy Buds+ will last 11 hours on a single charge while playing music, with 22 hours of additional battery backup in the case. In terms of talk time, the earbuds will offer 7.5 hours of battery backup on a single charge and 15 hours of extra charge in the case. So, compared to the Galaxy Buds, the Galaxy Buds+ offer almost twice the battery backup for music playback and a 40% better battery backup for calls. If that isn’t impressive enough for you, there is also faster charging on board – 3 minutes charging will give you 60 minutes of music playback time.
And the second biggest change comes in the audio driver department. While the Galaxy Buds had a single dynamic driver, the Galaxy Buds+ feature two dynamic drivers (One tuned for low-end and mid-range frequencies and other for high-end frequencies). The additional audio driver in the Galaxy Buds+ should offer much better audio quality compared to that of Galaxy Buds. And each earbud now has an additional microphone as well, bringing up the total number of mics in each earbud to three (Two on the outer side and one on the inner side). The extra mic, in theory, should give users better audio quality on calls and improved noise cancellation. While the Galaxy Buds+ still feature Bluetooth 5.0 like its predecessor, it now supports multi-device connection. However, the uses of multi-device connection are still unknown.
The addition of all these features has reflected in the weight of each earbud of the Galaxy Buds+. According to the leaked spec-sheet, the upcoming truly wireless earphones from Samsung will weigh 6.3 grams as opposed to 5.6 grams weight of the Galaxy Buds. Hopefully, it won’t be much of an issue to the users since the weight has increased only by a small margin. The leak from Evan Blass reveals that the Galaxy Buds+ will be available in Black, White, Blue, and Red color variants. And more, importantly, they will be priced at $149. That’s a $20 price bump compared to that of the Galaxy Buds. Although there is no official information regarding the launch date, the Galaxy Buds+ will most probably launch alongside the Galaxy S20 series handsets.
