Retailer leaks Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro online, price and features confirmed
The Galaxy Buds ‘Pro’ should cost exactly what we thought they would based on previous leaks, but they're still cheaper than the AirPods Pro
Samsung's upcoming additions to its highly successful line of true wireless earphones (TWS) the Galaxy Buds ‘Pro', has seen its fair share of leaks online in the past couple of months. On Monday, a Canadian retail store accidentally listed the entire details of the earbuds, giving us an idea of what they will be priced like.
Canadian retailer Staples posted a listing of a not-so-obvious “Samsung Galaxy Attic” with a price tag of 264 Canadian Dollars, just above $200 in the United States. Previous leaks had revealed that the company's latest earbuds could be under the $200 price mark, so the price of the Galaxy Buds Pro in the country would most likely be upwards of ₹15,000.
We already knew that the Galaxy Buds Plus and Galaxy Live successor would be more expensive than any other wireless earbud launched by the South Korean tech giant, but the current pricing suggests that the earbuds will be cheaper than their closest rivals from Sennheiser and Apple's flagship Airpods Pro.
Previous leaks of the upcoming wireless earbuds had revealed that they would include a feature called 3D Audio mode, which reportedly allows for an effect similar to the AirPods' ‘Spatial Audio', but only works on devices running Android 11.
While the Buds Pro won't have any dust resistance like some of the competition, it has an IPX7 rating, which is a big improvement over the Galaxy Buds Plus which have a much lower IPX2 rating. The listing also shows three colour variants for the buds - silver, black and violet. However, customers won't be able to purchase the Galaxy Buds Pro until their likely official launch at the Samsung Unpacked event on January 14.
