Leaks reveal that Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds Plus will come in at least three colors – but look almost exactly like the originals

  • Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus may come in three color variants
  • Renders also show that the design will be substantially similar to the originals
  • Specs on the buds are not yet available but they could be released in February

Leaks of Samsung’s upcoming hardware keep rolling in, and this time the company’s next-generation earbuds are at the center. 

Renders shared by Ishan Agarwal via the blog MySmartPrice, appear to offer the first glimpse of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus, a new addition to its line of wireless Bluetooth headphones. 

While the specs of the buds remain a mystery, they will apparently come in at least three different color variants, including  white, black, and light blue.

Design-wise the earbuds also seem to be fairly similar to the original Galaxy Buds, including an almost identical charging case.

Aside from the color variants, MySmartPrice also spotted a few other superficial differences, including a physical button next to the LED light. 

The leaks, if accurate, are part of a torrent of similarly revealing intel on an upcoming flagship phone from Samsung called the Galaxy S20. 

Images recently released revealed the Galaxy S20+ has a four-camera array fixed to the phone’s backside along with a flat screen and thin bezels. 

Other features of the new design appear to include a smaller, centered ‘hole-punch’ selfie camera and the ‘Infinity-O’ display, which comes with a pre-installed screen protector.

According to more leaks from XDA Developers this week, the forthcoming Galaxy S20 Plus – which is the larger version of Samsung’s flagship phones that are slated to be released in February – will definitively have a high-end 120 HZ display which had previously only been rumored.

The 120 HZ display will offer a high refresh rate but will only work with the phone’s standard resolution as opposed to the WQHD – quad high – setting that clocks in at 1440p as opposed to 1080p.

Additionally, XDA says that the phone will come with a traditional headphone jack and as well as an in-display ‘ultrasonic’ fingerprint scanner.

The latter feature marks a significant confirmation as Samsung has attempted to include in-display fingerprint-reading technology in the past to notably mixed results.

The Galaxy Buds tout smart dual microphones that can adjust to the noise levels of your surroundings and provide hands-free control using Samsung’s virtual assistant, Bixby

Samsung’s Galaxy S10, which uses similar technology, found itself at the center of controversy when customers pointed out that the technology – meant to enable biometric security – was both slow and easily fooled.   

The scanner’s biggest flaws occurred when coupled with a screen protector, which instead of unlocking the phone on a case-by-case basis, allowed it to be opened up anyone.

It’s possible, however, that with the S20, that Samsung has improved on its sensor technology and rectified issues that caused glitches in the S10.
