Samsung's beans-shaped wireless earbuds ‘Galaxy Buds’ will launch on August 5.

Galaxy Buds Live is one of the five products Samsung is launching at its Unpacked event on August 5. We’ve already seen renders of how the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live look like but a new leak reveals almost all the specs and features of the wireless earbuds.

The latest details of the Galaxy Buds Live come from an early update of the Galaxy Buds app. This would be the companion app for the wireless earbuds on Samsung smartphones. First thing is that the name ‘Galaxy Buds Live’ is official for Samsung’s new wireless earbuds. 

The app which was first spotted by The Verge, shows how one should wear the Galaxy Buds Live. This is interesting since the Galaxy Buds Live have a beans-like design quite different from any other TWS. There’s also a video posted by Ishan Agarwal which shows a better look at how exactly to wear the Galaxy Buds Live.

The Galaxy Buds Live will have touch controls on both earbuds. There’s also a feature to turn on active noise cancellation (confirmed) by default. Users can also disable touch controls completely. More features for the Galaxy Buds Live on the app include a ‘Find My Earbuds’ option and equaliser.

According to a report by WinFuture, the Galaxy Buds Live will be priced at $169 ( 12,700 approx). The Galaxy Buds Live will be equipped with sound by AKG, 12 mm drivers, two internal and one external microphone, the report added. In terms of battery life, it should run for 4.5 hours with ANC on and 5.5 hours without it. The Galaxy Buds Live has an overall battery life of 28 hours with the case which also supports wireless charging.
