Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is said to offer a total of 28 hours of play time with the case. Another notable feature is Spatial Audio like we saw on Apple AirPods Pro, though it could only be supported on Samsung smartphones running the company’s OneUI based on Android 11. In addition, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) with level control is expected as well. Also Read - S Pen support coming to more Samsung devices
Thanks to the IPX7 rating, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro can be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes. In comparison, the Galaxy Buds Live supports a much lower IPX2 rating, which means it can resist water that hits at a 15-degree angle or less.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro will support Bluetooth 5.1. Each earbud will pack a 60mAh battery, while the case is said to come with a 500mAH battery. A total of 28-hour of play time is promised with the case. Meanwhile, the earbud will offer a play time of eight hours. More features speculated are a USB Type-C charging port and Qi wireless charging.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is expected to launch on January 14, alongside the Galaxy S21 series. The Galaxy Buds Pro could be priced at $199, which is around 14,600 on conversion. This is slightly more than the price of the Galaxy Buds Live, which is available at $169.99 or approximately Rs 12,000. Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro will launch in three colour options including black, silver, and purple.
