Samsung has unveiled new truly wireless earphones named Galaxy Buds+ at the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event. It is the same where event where it took wraps off the Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Z Flip foldable phone. These new buds are a successor to last year's Galaxy Buds and are claimed to offering improvements in all major departments.
The Galaxy Buds+ features two-way speakers with a dedicated tweeter for higher notes and dedicated woofer for bass. These are fine-tuned by AKG for delivering a premium sound experience. There are a total of three mics including one inner mic and two outer-beam forming mics that should help deliver a better ambient sound.
It features a fast pairing process where users will need to pair Galaxy Buds+ earphones with their Samsung phone only for the first time. Once a connection has been established, they will not have to go for the pairing process again. All they will need to do is turn on Bluetooth on the phone and put on the earphones.

These are claimed to last for up to 11 hours or 7.5 hours of talk time on a single charge and this battery life gets exactly doubled when the user is making use of the charging case. Samsung is also claiming that a user can get 60 minutes of music playback by just 3 minutes of quick charging. These are compatible with any Qi-certified wireless charger.
