What you need to know

  • The update to the Galaxy Buds doesn't appear to have any physical changes in design.
  • Galaxy Buds+ will likely launch when Samsung announces the new Galaxy S11 devices.
  • One of the most exciting updates for these buds is the potential for active noise canceling.

The Galaxy Buds from Samsung were first announced with the Galaxy S10 phones, and with the S11 devices around the corner, it makes sense we are getting rumors for new buds too. The folks over at XDA Developers have dug up code in Samsung's SmartThing smart home app pointing to Galaxy Buds+, and even have a render to go along with it.

The first version of Samsung's truly wireless earbuds has been well-received as a great addition to your everyday carry bag. It seems that Samsung has listened to fans of the original buds and isn't going to change what works in terms of design. The render shows both a case and earbuds that look identical as far as we can tell.

That must mean internals are what will be getting the plus treatment. Previous reports have hinted towards the inclusion of active noise canceling, which for earbuds of this size, will be a great addition. It will be interesting to see what other features and colors that Samsung decides to add to its popular earbuds.

  • Got a free pair with my note 10 plus. I like them, they fit my ears good, better than other buds
  • I hope the call quality has been improved
  • This. I now systematically disable them when a call comes through to just use the phone internal speaker
  • loved the sound of the buds but I sold them for this.. completely useless for phone calls. Ugggh beyond useless , very frustrating . If they can address that be great for my android device.
  • They really need to improve the overall sound quality too. They're fine for listening to podcasts but there's no bass for music and the equalizer presets are a joke.
  • No real point in changing the design when it was one of the best fit earbuds in my opinion. They're not the air pods that "NEEDED" to be changed for the love of God.
  • The design of the Galaxy Buds is just fine. The audio quality, however, still needs improvement. As previously mentioned they're severely deficient in bass output. The case also needs to be more secure with stronger magnets for keeping the rest pieces in their slots.
  • After misplacing mine (likely lost) I wish the case had some kind of gps or something. If lost I will just wait on the + model.
