Samsung is rumored to launch next-gen wearables called the Galaxy Buds 2 at its next product event. Now, the OEM has submitted a pair of TWS earbuds that might match up with this leak with the FCC. They look a lot like their immediate predecessors and support Bluetooth Low Energy (LE).

Samsung may not be too far away from its next Unpacked event at this point. It is thought to unveil the Galaxy Watch 4 and 4 Active at present, if not the OEM's super-flagship Z Fold3 smartphone. This kind of speculation might now have more weight thanks to a new FCC certification obtained by the South Korean giant.

The new approval for use in the US pertains to the SM-R177, a pair of TWS earbuds with their almost obligatory charging case. These accessories are thought to be called the Galaxy Buds 2 on their launch, and this new leak seems to uphold this theory.

The buds have a charging case (EP-QR177) that powers up at a standard 5V/500mA rate and is depicted as having a footprint not unlike that of the Galaxy Buds Live. Then again, the actual earphones do not deviate hugely from the original Buds in their shape, as per their new official testing images.

All in all, if the "Galaxy Buds 2" have particularly advanced or high-end specs, they are not hugely apparent from their new filing. On the other hand, that might make the price on their debut attractive enough to many consumers.

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.
