A teardown of the Galaxy Buds Pro app by Reddit user ‘u/gamer0mega,’ revealed the device will retain the in-ear design that we saw on the Galaxy Buds and the Buds+. The Pro variant will come equipped with improved features when compared to the Galaxy Buds Live, such as a better Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and passive noise isolation.
In addition, 3D Spatial Audio with head tracking could be a notable feature on the Galaxy Buds Pro. Notably, only the Samsung phones running Samsung One UI based on Android 11 are expected to support Spatial Audio. Samsung could also add left/right hearing adjustment ability, which will allow users to adjust the volume levels of individual earbuds manually.
More specifications include a 61mAh battery in each earbud and a 472mAh battery for the charging case. A previous FCC listing of the Galaxy Buds Pro reveals that the earbuds will have the model number SM-R190R. Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro could work more reliably when paired to a device, thanks to Bluetooth 5.1 support, an upgrade from Bluetooth 5.0 used in the company’s previous-generation wireless earbuds.
