Apple has only just released its all-new AirPods Pro but they’ve already become the wireless earbuds to beat. With a new design that offers a snug fit and the introduction of some incredible noise cancellation, this addition to the popular range of AirPods headphones are now leading the pack.
However, that might not be the case for much longer with Samsung rumoured to be getting ready to release its next wireless Galaxy Buds.
Samsung’s original in-ear and fully wire-free headphones launched earlier this year but are already looking a little outdated when compared to many of their rivals.
Rumours have already suggested that the Korean firm could introduce noise-cancelling technology on its new music makers and now there’s another leak which could help to give them an even bigger boost.
A recent filing on The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website reveals some information about a new Bluetooth headset from Samsung.
Although it doesn’t mention Galaxy Buds by name this could well be the next generation of headphones and, if true, there’s some very good news.

Samsung Galaxy Buds could get a major refresh next year
As spotted by the team at Droid Life the listing reveals that these new Buds will feature a bigger battery inside plus the charging case is also packed with a larger tank.
To put this into perspective, the current Galaxy Buds include a 150mA battery and a 300mA charging case but this appears to be doubled on these new headphones.
Whether some of this extra power will be needed for the noise cancellation remains to be seen but this improved oomph could, in theory, mean the Galaxy Buds are able to last for around 10 hours on a single charge which would beat the AirPods Pro by a considerable margin.
Apple’s flagship earbuds currently last for around 4-5 hours before needing to be placed back inside their case for a refill.
We’ll have to wait and see exactly what Samsung releases in 2020 but fans of these headlines could get a glimpse of what is to come soon.
The original Buds launched alongside the new Galaxy S10 and with the S11 expected in February, there could be more news on this upgrade very soon.
