Samsung’s next Galaxy Buds might feature new ‘bean’ design

Samsung Galaxy Buds bean redesign

Just a couple of months ago, the Galaxy Buds+ launched with a design similar to Samsung’s previous truly wireless earbuds but with improved battery life. Now a new report claims that Samsung is already hard at work on its next Galaxy Buds and that they’ll have a big redesign.

Samsung is reportedly planning to give its upcoming Galaxy Buds a new bean design. WinFuture got hold of 3D design data used to make these Galaxy Buds and mocked up some renders to show what the actual product could look like. One thing to keep in mind is that these buds are still in the evaluation phase now, so the design could change by the time they launch.

These new Galaxy Buds are said to be codenamed “Bean”, and the design is true to that name. They look like a kidney bean that you’d put into your ear, with the speaker going into your ear while the upper part of the earbuds will rest in the upper part of your ear.

The new “Bean” Galaxy Buds are said to have two small loudspeakers and multiple microphones which could be used for taking calls and possibly for piping in outside noise. We can also see a couple of contacts that’d be used to charge these earbuds.

Today’s report says that these new Galaxy Buds feature the model number SM-R180. There’s no word yet on when they might launch, but with Samsung likely launching a new Galaxy Note flagship this fall, it’s possible that these redesigned Galaxy Buds could debut then, too.

This new design ditches the “plug” design of the current Galaxy Buds and it could help them not stick out of your ear quite as much as the existing Galaxy Buds do while you’re wearing them. It’s definitely a different look, though, both compared to the existing Galaxy Buds and to pretty much any other wireless earbuds. We’ll have to wait and see if Samsung actually brings this design to market or if the design gets tweaked before launch.
