What you need to know
- Purported renders of Samsung's next-generation Galaxy Buds earbuds have surfaced.
- The renders suggest the earbuds will have an all-new design, with a bean-like shape.
- Samsung could launch the earbuds in August this year, alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series.
When Samsung introduced the Galaxy Buds+ earlier this year, some were disappointed with the company's decision to leave the design largely unchanged. The earbuds do not offer active noise cancellation either, which is also disappointing. According to a report from WinFuture, Samsung is now working on a new pair of true wireless earbuds, codenamed "beans."
The report includes several renders of the next-gen Galaxy Buds, apparently based on sketches and 3D models of the earbuds. As you can see in the renders above, the earbuds will have a bean-like design, with two speaker drivers located in the lower part. Along with the two speaker drivers, the earbuds will reportedly have an "outside channel" for better audio and multiple microphones for great call quality. Additionally, the earbuds will have sensors to detect whether the earbuds are placed inside the ear canal or not.
Unfortunately, the WinFuture report does not reveal any of the key features or tech specs of the upcoming true wireless earbuds. It is also unclear if the earbuds will be launched this year, although the report says it is possible that they might debut along with the Galaxy Note 20 series phones in August.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus
Despite being nearly identical to the original Galaxy Buds in terms of design, the Galaxy Buds+ offer superior sound quality, much-improved call quality, and longer battery life. They are also feature-packed and reasonably priced.

Looking forward to this design. Fingers crossed this will fit and stay in my ears unlike all the existing buds.
Instead of tapping, they will be controlled by flicking. Yeah, I know. I'm sorry.
Well this is one design that people wont be able to say they copied apple on. Interesting to see how these hold up in ear.
I hate the current ones (first gen). Every the smallest buds hurt my ears.
Had to go with a different brand because the Galaxy Buds down stay in my ears (yep... I have big ears) Hopefully these have the right size and shape to stay in my ears or have option rubber parts to add to them for people with big ears.
