Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy S21 series a month earlier than usual, which means that if the flagship phone will be joined on stage by a new pair of wireless earbuds then, obviously, the sequel to the Galaxy Buds Live should also be unveiled in January. Sure enough, Samsung is already getting ready for the product’s release, as evidenced by a certificate found in the database of China’s 3C regulatory agency.
The 3C application was filed by Samsung SDI, the division responsible for manufacturing batteries, and it details a battery that carries model number EB-BR190ABY. It strongly suggests that the component belongs to Samsung’s upcoming wireless earbuds which are rumored to be called the Galaxy Buds Beyond. They should be identified by model number SM-R190, following in the footsteps of the Galaxy Buds Live (SM-R180).
Galaxy Buds Beyond charging case has a 472mAh battery
The documents reveal that the so-called Galaxy Buds Beyond will have a charging case equipped with a 472mAh battery. It’s the same battery capacity as found inside the Galaxy Buds Live charging case, which is more than sufficient.
The documents haven’t revealed any details regarding the batteries found inside the Galaxy Buds Beyond earbuds themselves but they could also be identical to the ongoing model. Each Galaxy Buds Live earbud is equipped with a 60mAh battery and the setup offers up to 6 hours of playtime on a single charge, with ANC and Bixby Voice Wake-up enabled, and up to 21 hours with the charging case included.
Time will tell if the Galaxy Buds Beyond will build upon the Galaxy Buds Live design or if Samsung will steer the series in a different direction once again.
