UPDATE (July 23rd, 2020):
As we are waiting for the Galaxy Buds Live to get official, Samsung has made support pages live in different countries. These include India, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom. These pages do not reveal anything about the launch but they do suggest that an official release is around the corner.

Past leaks have told us that Samsung has bean-shaped earbuds in the works. Some early renders have even revealed how these earbuds are going to look like and now on the top of those of leaks, we are seeing the color options of these earbuds.
The very popular leakster Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter has shared a couple of images of the next Galaxy Buds on his Patreon account. The images show the colors in which these earbuds will arrive in. The marketing name of these color variants is unknown, but it is evident that the new Galaxy Buds will come in white, black, and rose gold-like color options. All the variants featured in the image look so glossy and shiny, suggesting a metal-like finish.
The leaked images do not include any other information but it is quite easy to glean a few details, including their shape, case, and speakers. As utterly visible, the earbuds have an outward-facing shape and each of the earbuds includes two microphone holes. There is a capsule-shaped grille opening as well but we can’t tell what it is exactly for. Previously, a report suggested that the upcoming earbuds will come with Active Noise Cancellation and as XDA Developers points out these could be for enabling an Ambient Sound mode.
The earbuds reportedly have a compact design with 28mmx13mm dimensions. The earbuds do not appear too snuggly but this is something that can’t be asserted just now.
The name of these earbuds is still unknown but a couple of its appearances do bring some hints at its naming. Previously, a filed trademark by Samsung revealed the name Galaxy BudsX but later the string “buds_live” was spotted inside the Galaxy Wearable app, suggesting it to be “Buds Live.” Well, we still don’t know what the new Galaxy Buds will end being called but meanwhile, let’s just gain some knowledge about it.
