Rumor | Samsung has developed a new, kidney bean-shaped Galaxy Bud

Samsung is now rumored to have a completely new type of Galaxy Bud in the works. According to a new leak, they will have a much larger shape that looks somewhat like a pair of beans. Some renders generated based on this idea suggests that they may have an improved range of sensors compared to the Buds+.

Samsung reportedly used the code-name "Popcorn" for the Galaxy Buds, which may have been due to the shape of these TWS earphones. The technology blog WinFuture has allegedly told by a source that they now have successors called "Beans" by this OEM internally; therefore, the resulting products may also fit this convention.

The blog has thus gone to work on some renders showing what these new Buds could look like. The results are indeed a much larger than average TWS earphones. They do indeed have two basic lobe-like lumps, which easily accommodate dual speaker-apertures and case-contacts on their interior surfaces.

These images do imply further advantages to this new shape, not the least of which is plenty of room of the mics and sensors necessary for active noise cancellation (ANC) or perhaps other next-gen audio features. However, in practice, they may also be quite a lot bigger in the ear. WinFuture has underpinned this possibility by supplying a final mocked-up image of what they could look like on a model.

To date, these putative Galaxy Buds+ successors are yet to be acknowledged by their putative OEM in any way. Then again, they are now linked to a model number (SM-R180). However, it should be noted that Samsung's latest real-life TWS earbuds have not varied significantly from the Buds series in size or shape, and yet support ANC.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
