Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Buds Live true wireless noise-cancelling headset is expected to be unveiled at the company’s online Unpacked event on August 5. A few days ago, the color details of the headset were leaked, and the latest leak came from the official app, confirming the addition of active noise reduction (ANC) features. Now, German website WinFuture has obtained the full specifications and media renderings of the new earbuds, while revealing the product’s various details, such as battery life data and other technical details.
The first and most important detail is the device’s battery life, which the report says provides a maximum battery life of 7.5 hours on a single charge, but this figure can only be achieved by turning off the ANC and Always-On Mic features. However, if the user chooses to use these features, the earbuds will provide up to 4.5 hours of listening time, the same as the AirPods Pro.
When used with the charging case, Buds Live is expected to provide up to 28 hours of talk time without turning on these features, which will be reduced to 20 hours when all features are enabled. The charging case can be charged wirelessly via a Qi-enabled charger or quickly charged via a USB Type-C cable, providing up to 35 minutes of listening time by placing the earbuds in the charging box for three minutes.
Other specifications include a 12mm single drive (instead of Buds Plus’s dual-drive system) adjusted by AKG, three microphone arrays — two exteriors and one interior — and sensors for touch, acceleration, reverb and distance, each with a weight of 5.6g.
The previously released Galaxy Buds Plus offers up to 11 hours of continuous streaming service on a single charge, plus an additional 11 hours through the charging box, but it’s important to note that the device doesn’t have an ANC noise reduction feature. While Buds Live is expected to rival the AirPodS Pro in terms of battery life, it is rumoured to be priced at $169, much lower than Apple’s $249 product.
