Earlier reports said Samsung would launch products such as the Galaxy Note 20 tablet, the Galaxy Fold 2 fold-out smartphone and the Galaxy Watch 3 smartwatch at its August launch. But a new xDA-Developers study of Samsung’s wearable app ( Galaxy Wearable) suggests that the waist-shaped Galaxy Beans wireless headset is also expected to be on the same side.

Samsung confirmed the “waist” shape of the new true wireless headset in the Buds Live icon of the Galaxy wearable app. Although the official name has not yet been released, there are currently two statements about Galaxy Beans and BudsX.
Although the ear canal will not be completely closed, earlier rumors have been circulating that the new Galaxy BudsX wireless headset will support active noise reduction (ANC) with two occurrence units and multiple microphones, codenamed SM-R180.
In terms of price, the Galaxy BudsX is expected to sell for $140 (about 990 RMB) in South Korea, compared with $249 (about 1760 RMB) for the Apple AirPods Pro, with a difference of $109 (about 770 RMB).
If the rumors are anything to go by, the Galaxy Buds X will at least have a clear price advantage, along with the Galaxy Note 20 Series flagship smartphone in the third quarter of this year.
However, there have been other reports that Samsung may delay the release of the Galaxy S21 by the first quarter of 2021.
