Samsung’s bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live TWS earbuds leak in three colors

Samsung’s bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live TWS earbuds leak in three colors

Samsung has been in the truly wireless (TWS) earbuds segment for a few years now. The Galaxy Buds+ was also one of Samsung’s better-received products in this segment, winning over as a product that can be easily recommended to most consumers and improving upon its predecessor in just the right ways. That makes us excited for what Samsung has in store for the successor, the bean-shaped Samsung Galaxy Buds Live. We already have a fairly good idea of what the Buds Live will look like thanks to early renders, and now we get to take a look at some more color options.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Review: The Meaningful Increment


The bean shape of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live is no real secret by now. In the picture above, shared by Evan ‘evleaks’ Blass on his Patreon, we see the Buds Live’s outward-facing shell and the two microphone holes, along with another grilled opening that we are unable to properly explain yet. The earbuds are expected to come with Active Noise Cancellation, so these could be for enabling an Ambient Sound mode. Unlike the previous iterations, 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.

Next, we get our first look at the earbuds inside their case. Unlike the pill-shaped case that Samsung used for the Buds and Buds+, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live has a more squared case. The lid also gets a rubber strip. Other than the shape, there aren’t any major changes in the design.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are expected to be unveiled at Samsung Unpacked on August 5, 2020, alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 5GGalaxy Note 20Galaxy Z Fold 2Galaxy Tab S7, and the Galaxy Watch 3.
