Another significant feature could be IPX7 rating, which means the earbuds can be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, Samsung’s other completely wireless earbuds including Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, and Galaxy Buds Live are neither water-resistant nor dust-proof. Other features of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro revealed by Agarwal are 11mm bass, 6.5mm tweeter coaxial dual speakers, 35db noise-canceling, dual connection.

Prior to this, a teardown of the Galaxy Buds Pro app by Reddit user ‘u/gamer0mega,’ hints at 3D Spatial Audio similar to the Apple AirPods, which could be another big feature. It is likely that Spatial Audio will be available for only the phones running Samsung One UI based on Android 11. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and passive isolation are expected as well.
In terms of design, the Galaxy Buds Pro will sport a rounded case and in-ear buds similar to the Galaxy Buds Live. As per an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) listing, the new Samsung earbuds will support Bluetooth 5.1, an upgrade from Bluetooth 5.0 used in Galaxy Buds Live.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro could cost around $199 and come in three colour variants – black, silver, and purple. Though Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are said to launch in January next year, do note that this information needs to be taken with a pinch of salt as there is no official confirmation as of now. The earbuds could be bundled with Galaxy S21 series phones for those who pre-order.
