At the very beginning of the Samsung Galaxy S10 event, new information emerged about the company's upcoming wireless headsets. Features come from the FCC and Samsung from Turkey, providing the name confirmation and partial illustration of the charging kit for the enhancement that is expected to become the heir to the Samsung Gear IconX headset.
The first news comes through Reddit, where users noticed that "Galaxy Buds" on the Turkish website provided the warranty information page. This is in accordance with Bluetooth SIG by submitting the device and gives full meaning from the perspective of branding, although it is worth pointing out that, at least, the name "Samsung Buds" was in the mix. Samsung applied for the Samsung Buds trademark in Europe in September this year, and has not yet named the new name Galaxy Buds at the European Union's Intellectual Property Office. In the United States, however, only Galaxy Buds was a trademark (in October 2018).
As far as the FCC list of 29 January is concerned, certification, as is usually the case, does not give much. This, however, reveals an illustration of the bottom of the charging case. The picture shows an oval object (I hope it is a bit smaller than the IconX charging case, see above) with a charging connector on one side. It is not entirely clear whether the USB-C charger is plugged in, but since the last generation of IconX had a USB-C port, it is likely to be assumed that Samsung will keep that choice for new wireless headsets.
With regard to what we can still expect from the handset: Bluetooth briefing confirmed Bluetooth 5.0 for device and leak SamMobile indicating that Galaxy Buds will offer 8GB of built-in storage and better battery life. We will probably know for a few short weeks at the Galaxy Unpacked event, so stay with us.
