Samsung is now rumored to introduce its next-gen TWS earbuds as the Galaxy Buds Pro during the S21 launch event. Now, there is even more evidence for this theory, coming direct from the FCC in the form of a new certification. It is for a product called SM-R190, touted to be these accessories' model number in a prior leak.
The Commission's new documentation may also corroborate much of this pre-exising story, right down to the appearance of the name "Buds Pro" on its identifying information, which appears to have been sourced directly from Korean authorities.
This part of the FCC's assessment also contains a schematic for what is probably the earbuds' charging case, which gives it a rounded cuboid footprint. A new render freshly posted by Evan Blass on Voice purports to show the same in 3D and full color.
On that note, it looks like the Buds Pro might be styled so as to match every color option currently linked to the Samsung Galaxy S21 series. Blass' new "Galaxy Buds Pro" renders show a finish that could be called Phantom Violet, at least; furthermore, the FCC lets slip that they may also come in black.
As for the earbuds themselves, their new images also suggest that they go back to the Buds/Buds+ form factor for this new version. Then again, it also looks like this design has been highly refined, and also exhibits the small external grilles seen in the Buds Live. This may be a further hint that Samsung intends to debut these Pros with active noise cancellation (ANC).
Finally, their FCC approval also contradicts earlier reports, in that these "Galaxy Buds Pro" may actually have a charging case with more battery compared to that of the Buds+: 500mAh, rather than 472mAh as in these pre-existing TWS earbuds.
