New Samsung Galaxy Buds+ renders leak: Purple BTS edition of the TWS buds for K-pop fans, but still no Galaxy Buds X in sight
New renders have just leaked for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Buds+ BTS edition. The bright purple TWS earphones are really just a color variant for Samsung's existing Galaxy Buds+ that are evidently a cross-branding effort with Korean K-pop band BTS.
The leaked renders showcase the BTS edition's purple color scheme and appear to complement the upcoming purple BTS variant of the Samsung Galaxy S20, which is expected to launch in July.
Price-wise, the Galaxy Buds+ compete with Apple's AirPods, not the higher-end AirPods Pro. While you miss out on active noise cancellation, the AKG-tuned Galaxy Buds+ sound great and the silicone tips mean a more secure fit.
Why is Samsung launching a BTS edition of its Buds+ TWS earphones? At the end of the day, Samsung is a South Korean company with a massive user base in that country. BTS is one of the most popular K-pop bands and the special BTS edition of both the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Buds+ are likely to attract fans.
