The Galaxy S21 series may be Samsung's next flagship products, but the South Korean company has other exciting devices in the works too. According to several pictures, Samsung plans to announce not only the Galaxy Buds Pro, but the Galaxy SmartTags also.

While Samsung is not scheduled to unveil new Galaxy hardware until January 14, pictures of the Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartThings have already appeared online. Images of the two have been published under different circumstances, though. Samsung is yet to confirm the existence of either device, mind you.

On the one hand, someone listed the Galaxy Buds Pro on Facebook Marketplace. The listing has since been taken down, but we suspect these were a spare review pair, or something similar. Nonetheless, the listing confirms that the earbuds are IPX7 certified, support Bluetooth 5.1 and feature active noise cancellation (ANC). Additionally, the earbuds should last up to five hours between charges and eighteen hours from a single charge of the bundled charging case.

In short, the Galaxy Buds Pro resemble a cross between the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Plus. The Pro models also support a two-way speaker design that will apparently deliver 'rich sound'. A leaked review of the earbuds suggests that they will feature multipoint connectivity, too.

Meanwhile, images of the Galaxy SmartTags have been published by the National Communications Commission (NCC) in Taiwan. Presumably, these will function like a Tile and can be linked to a variety of devices. However, Max Weinbach claims that the Galaxy SmartTags will support ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, a first for a tracker. Weinbach adds that the Galaxy SmartTags should support at least the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold2 and the upcoming Galaxy S21 series.
