New Galaxy Buds Live renders show off wingtips, explaining how the earbuds will stay in your ears
Samsung Unpacked 2020 is just a week away, and we continue receiving more information about the devices that are expected to make an appearance at Samsung’s flagship event for the second half of the year. Just earlier today we had a look at the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 and its hole-punch display. Now, new renders of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have leaked, showing off the upcoming earbuds from all angles, wingtips included.
These new renders come to us courtesy of leaker Ishan Agarwal. While we have already seen the Galaxy Buds Live in several renders in the past (like this, this, and this), we always wondered how the devices would actually stay put within the ear. These new renders provide a plausible explanation as they give us our best look yet at the wingtip protrusions.
Looking at the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live from the sides shows off the wingtips on the kidney-bean shaped earbuds. The speaker grille is present on the bottom half of the earbud, and the wingtips are present on the top. The wingtips should hook onto the ear pinna, and help keep the buds in place. These renders also provide confirmation that the upcoming earbuds will not have an in-ear design at all with silicon tips and that the speakers would rest outside your ear.
The Galaxy Buds Live are among one of the five devices expected at the Samsung event next week. These earbuds will finally bring over Active Noise Cancellation support to Samsung’s lifestyle TWS lineup. The compact design of the upcoming earbuds will sit more flush in the user’s ears and won’t protrude out as much. The earbuds are expected to measure in at just 2.8cm, making them a bit more comfortable and easier to use, especially for people will small ears. However, the new design might have some adverse effects on sound isolation as the earbuds don’t have any silicone components to ensure a proper seal. We’ll find out soon enough.
