We first heard about the development of the alleged Galaxy Buds 2 in March this year when an APK teardown was done on the latest build of the Galaxy Live app revealed its name.
Samsung has been ramping production of parts for the new SM-R177 next gen Galaxy Buds for the last few days. Yields are stabilizing but aren't 100% yet. Still, new Buds incoming sooner rather than later (TM).— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) May 19, 2021
Now, around two weeks back, one of the top tipsters in the tech world claimed that Samsung was ramping up the production of the Galaxy Buds 2. He even tipped the model number to be SM-R177.
Today, the device can be seen on the FCC listing. And, while you think it would be a mere device’s entry in the certification, the listing reveals a lot more.
The FCC certification listing has actually revealed the first look of the device. A tipster with Twitter username @FrontTron spotted this entry first and shared what else the FCC listing brings.
The images of the alleged Galaxy Buds 2 show Samsung didn’t touch the design part much. It rather chose to go again with the design language of its existing Buds Live and the Buds Pro earbuds.
Furthermore, the images showcase the Galaxy Buds 2 has infrared sensors for automatic wear detection and metal connectors for charging.

Later, the tipster IceUniverse on Twitter mentioned that Samsung’s upcoming wireless earbuds will feature improved audio quality and “active noise reduction.” Also, the upcoming earbuds are tipped to feature a combined battery capacity of 120mAH and 500mAh for the case.
Let’s see when Samsung plans to launch these new earbuds.
