At the same Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco, Samsung also unveiled the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Buds+ to accompany the flagship Galaxy S20 Series. These pair of TWS earbuds from Samsung sure packs a punch as we delve into the specs.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ features two-way speakers with Sound by AKG, meaning they’re tuned by the professionals at AKG for impeccable sound. On board, you will also find that there are a total of three microphones for improved call quality. The batteries powering these little earbuds can provide up to 11 hours of usage. If you combine that with the battery from the case, you’ll get an extra 11 hours. Pretty sweet, right?
That’s not all, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are now compatible with iOS. So, any iPhone users who want something other than the AirPods, you now have the Buds+ to add to your consideration list. The Galaxy Buds+ are also made to work effortlessly with Spotify. That means everytime you fire it up, it will play music directly from Spotify, without you needing to switch apps.
If you have a Qi-enabled wireless charger, you could even charge the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ wirelessly. The same goes for if you have a smartphone that has the reverse wireless charging feature. On Samsung, that would be the Wireless PowerShare feature.

Pricing and Availability
Samsung is bundling the new Galaxy Buds+ together with the pre-order of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Series. They’re valued at RM599, so that should be the official retail price of the Galaxy Buds+ when they become available for purchase separately. But for now, it seems you can only get them as a free gift by pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.
