The largest bean-shaped Samsung Galaxy Buds Live leak reveals pretty much every important piece of information including battery life. The specification includes driver tech specs, features offered, three colors available, and most of all, price.
Roland Quandt of WinFuture hit again and revealed in exhaustive information almost all information about the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live. And also directly shared photos of the earbuds in black, white, and “Mystic Bronze”, as well as a picture of the charging case.
Due to a leak just hours ago, the earbuds feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and a touch-sensitive surface on the outside that can be used to control volume or pause playback.
However, the battery life is even more impressive. Samsung apparently promises that the headphones will last a full 7.5 hours – that battery life will only be achieved if active noise cancellation is otherwise disabled and permanently included microphones (AOM). You get “only” 5.5 hours, for calls – 4.5 hours of work time.
Together with the charging case, the battery life is 28 or 20 hours, depending on which functions are activated. Three minutes in the charging case should be enough for 35 minutes of music playback. And the battery can be charged either via USB-C or wirelessly.
Interestingly, Samsung has to supply the rubber ear tips in three sizes to better fit the earbuds. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live is expected to hit the market for around € 190, with an official launch expected on August 5 alongside the Galaxy Note 20.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live: official app confirms some features including active noise cancellation
A few days ago a video teaser indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live will offer active noise reduction (ANC). Now the official app confirms the name and a few other functions in addition to this feature.
The bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live will be presented on August 5 together with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20. The Verge has now discovered that the official Samsung Galaxy Buds Companion app has already received an update that confirms various information about the Galaxy Buds Live.
Above all, the name of the in-ears is officially confirmed. But the user interface also shows that active noise cancellation (ANC) is on board, just as a teaser had already indicated a few days ago. It is interesting, however, that there is apparently no transparency mode. But this may not be necessary, because the design of the earphones is unlikely to passively dampen ambient noise.
The app also shows an equalizer. Which allows, for example, the bass or the treble to be amplified. But a finer setting of the frequency curve seems to be missing. Not surprisingly: The Galaxy Buds live will offer a touch-sensitive surface on the outside. So that, for example, playback can be paused by tapping, as well as a “Find My Earbuds” function. Nice: The app notifies the user when connecting for the first time that the earphones are used correctly to ensure the best possible sound and a functioning noise suppression.
