Samsung is reportedly gearing up to launch the new pair of wireless earbuds that will likely launch as Galaxy BudsX, suggests the newly sighted IP documentation. The application document doesn’t suggest any technical details, nor does it share any image that could tell how this wearable will look like. However, it is being assumed that the spotted BudsX moniker is for the same earbuds which have the codename “Bean.”
Earlier this month, a well-known tipster Roland Quandt shared the renders of unannounced earbuds from Samsung and revealed its codename, the marketing name of which was unknown, but now it is suspected these are the Galaxy BudsX.
Reportedly, Samsung applied for the trademark on the said moniker on Monday, having submitted the application with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Besides revealing the name, which is just BudsX to be specific, the filing suggests nothing else, though it does put a good hint at the release.
According to the publication that spotted this filing, the aforementioned name doesn’t even mention the “Galaxy” brand. But this doesn’t reflect that Samsung is planning to remove the Galaxy branding. Still, nothing can be confirmed at such an initial stage, so take everything with a grain of salt.
The Galaxy BudsX is expected to feature bean-like shape and some of the initial renders even show how the earbuds will look like. If this is the final design, then we will see a complete changeover from what Samsung was selling before. Our first impression is that these earbuds may not be too comfortable to wear; they have no silicon tips and their structure is unusual as well, but let’s just not assume anything. Every product goes through enough series of R&D and testing, so they may come out as a good option.
A report from the past has conveyed that these earbuds will have Active Noise Cancellation as well. Each earbud is 28mm long and 13mm wide. These earbuds reportedly have three microphones and two speakers each.
Let’s wait for more details to come.
