Samsung Unpacked’s next launch is less than a month away if all signs are to be believed, and we’ll see the company unveil a new pair of wireless headphones at the event, as well as new foldables and smartwatches. . Of course, we already know a lot about the Galaxy Buds 2 and these other upcoming products thanks to an insane amount of leaks, and now we’re learning new details about the headphones via Samsung’s own Galaxy Wearable app.
New Galaxy Buds 2 Details Come Direct From Samsung
The Galaxy Buds 2 have yet to launch, but Samsung is already preparing the Galaxy Wearable app so that it can support the new headphones whenever they hit the market. One developer was able to dig deeper into an upcoming update to the app and extract some juicy details, and one thing in particular is quite interesting. It looks like Samsung will be copying a feature from Apple’s AirPods: users will be able to use active noise cancellation (ANC) using a single Galaxy Buds 2 earbud.
This feature will likely make its way to the Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy Buds Live via an update. The same goes for the new granular touchpad controls discovered in the new version of the app: Samsung will allow the user to individually disable or enable touchpad actions such as tap, double tap, triple tap. and touch and hold the Galaxy Buds 2.
Unfortunately, it looks like the app code doesn’t contain any options to choose between high and low ANC levels, nor the 360 ââAudio feature introduced with the Galaxy Buds Pro. However, it is possible that these features exist but are not yet visible. The Galaxy Buds 2 will likely have all the functionality of the Galaxy Buds Pro out of the box, unless Samsung wants to keep a few items exclusive to the Galaxy Buds Pro so that it can continue to sell both products.
The app also reveals a yellow color for the Buds 2 which was not known until now. Previously known color options including black, green, purple, and white have also been confirmed, although the green version spotted in the app is a bit different from what the leaked renders showed us. Samsung has also redesigned parts of the Galaxy Wearable app, such as the battery stats screen and the Find my headphones section. Finally, the app also lists the battery capacity of the Buds 2: 61mAh in each earbud and 472mAh for the case.
