The Galaxy Buds Pro 2 release date could be any day now

Following the release of the Galaxy Buds Pro in January 2021, there hasn’t been much talk from Samsung about a potential successor. However, a new report suggests that a new model is coming soon. According to a tweet from leaker Max Jambor, the Galaxy Buds Pro 2 (or maybe the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro) started production on June 11. Jambor doesn’t say anything else about the earbuds, but another leak hints that he may be on the money.

Spotted first by SamMobile, Twitter user SnoopyTech says they found online listings for the Galaxy Buds Pro 2. The listing had two critical pieces of information: The time window they go on sale and the colors the earbuds will be available in.

According to SnoopyTech, the listing said that the Buds Pro 2 will be available for purchase in early July, which would line up with the production claims Jambor has made. The colors available at launch, according to the listing, will be Zenith White, Zenith Bora Purple, and Zenith Graphite.

If it’s true that the Buds Pro 2 will be coming in July, it would mean that an official announcement is imminent. Because the earbuds are relatively new for Samsung, there aren’t patterns to look at when trying to decipher their release windows yet. Many annalysts assumed that because we hadn’t heard anything official from the company, we’d have to wait to see them until the fall Samsung Unpacked event. Based on the information above, however, they might be on store shelves much sooner.

From a marketing perspective, it does make some sense that Samsung might want to spread out its releases so that the end of the year doesn’t get too cluttered with device launches. Rumor has it that the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4, Watch 5, and Watch 5 Pro are all going to be released in August. That lineup of devices is exceptionally strong, and if the Buds Pro 2 were to be thrown into the mix for a late August release, they might get overshadowed by other “more exciting” devices.

It’s important to remember to view all leaks with some skepticism, but there’s clearly evidence to suggest that there’s potentially some truth to them. And considering how well-received the Buds Pro and Buds 2 were, it only makes sense for Samsung to keep that momentum going with the Buds Pro 2.

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 6 is one of the best smartwatches that you can buy right now, especially if you’re using a Galaxy smartphone. But as good as it is, there's also no denying how much of an iterative update it was over the Galaxy Watch 5. It's about time we see some bigger changes to Samsung's smartwatch family.

Why I ditched my iPhone 15 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and iPhone 15 Pro in hand.

This is not another “lifelong iPhone user tries Android” story. I use and review all kinds of phones, and I prefer the flexibility of Android. That said, I’ve been on the iPhone 15 Pro since its launch — for two reasons. First, I had been getting the iPhone 14 Pro Max-level battery life on it. Second, I like the stability of social media apps like Instagram and X (formerly Twitter). But the experience has been downgrading for a while now.

Samsung's "AI phone," the Galaxy S24 Ultra, tackles these two issues and gives me some extra features that I didn’t think would be important for me. It’s been a surprisingly fun experience. Here’s why I shifted to the Galaxy S24 Ultra from the iPhone 15 Pro and decided to stay on it. And no, it has nothing to do with AI.

Samsung adding Auracast and 360 Audio to more TVs, phones, and earbuds
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

Samsung today announced a series of updates for some televisions and a trio of earbuds that will add features across the board, and also allow everything to play together that much more.

Auracast is one of the more interesting features on the way. It essentially allows one device to pick up a signal being broadcast by another, not unlike a radio. Samsung has had Auracast on select TVs for a while now, and it's been available on multiple Galaxy Buds earbuds. Now, it's expanding to phones and tablets. The ability to broadcast will hit the Galaxy S24 and S23 phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, and the Tab S9 series. (They'll all need to have One UI 6.1 or newer.) And the ability to listen to an Auracast broadcast is coming to the Galaxy S24 series, S23 series, Z Fold5, Z Fold4, Z Flip5, Z Flip4, A54 5G, M54 5G, Tab S9 series, Tab S9 FE series and Tab Active 5 5G with One UI 5.1.1 or above.
