Filings for the new Buds hit the FCC
Filings for what look to be a new set of Samsung Galaxy Buds have reached the FCC, showing that a new version of Samsung’s wireless earbuds might be turning up soon — and the filings have a tempting piece of information that might specify improved battery life.
In a diagram of where the essential FCC labeling may appear on the new Galaxy Buds, you can see that each bud may have a capability of “300mA,” and that the case may have a capacity of “600mA.” That could supposedly mean up to threefold the battery life for each bud over the Galaxy Buds on the market today, and a slight upgrading in battery life for the case.
You shouldn’t essentially trust those numbers, though, because for the original Galaxy Buds, the battery ratings in its FCC filings were greater than the ones on the retail product.
It’s worth noting that the present Galaxy Buds already have good battery life contrasted to other wireless earbuds. The base AirPods, for instance, get about five hours on one charge, while the Galaxy Buds were publicized at six hours for the buds and seven hours of standby for the case. The real-world usage was also found to be consistent with Samsung’s estimates.
THE CURRENT GALAXY BUDS ALREADY HAVE GOOD BATTERY LIFE
The FCC filings don’t have any other photographs, although, so we don’t know what the case or buds might look like, and we don’t know how much they might value. The filings also don’t provide us much of a hint about when the new Galaxy Buds might be launched, as filings often display up weeks or months before products come in the market.
Though Samsung is reportedly planning to reveal the Galaxy S11 and a new vertically folding Galaxy Fold in February, so it is expected that Samsung will introduce the new Galaxy Buds in February as well.
When contacted for comment about the filings, a Samsung spokesperson said they don’t have anything to share.
