Perhaps more disturbingly, this plan, which has reportedly never been revised, could have something to do with the “late development” of the Buds Pro 2. Which would explain why we still have no idea what to expect from these bad guys in the future. terms of features, capabilities, design, and pricing, also suggesting that the “silent release” currently predicted could be (much) later than August.
tipped all the way back in March to break cover about a year after the Galaxy Buds 2, until today the company’s next-gen AirPods rivals didn’t even have a name highly confidently speculated by reliable leakers.
But while the clear expectation now is that we will see the Galaxy Buds Pro 2 rather than the Buds 3 or even the Buds Live 2 unveiled at some point “this year”, Samsung apparently has no intention of overloading its Unpacked stage with these bad guys.
Instead, the aforementioned Z Flip 4, Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Watch 5 . are expected the glamorous August 10 launch event for itself, while the Buds Pro 2 could be announced with less glitz around the same time.
That’s a pretty weird strategy to use for what sounds like a new high-profile member of a very successful product family in a highly competitive and fast growing industry. Samsung’s curious new approach would also go against its own tradition, with not only the non-Pro Buds 2 unveiled at an Unpacked party last August, but the first-generation Buds Pro taking center stage alongside the Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21. Ultra handsets also back in January 2021.
Let’s hope that turns out not to be the case after all, and Samsung will manage to add another strong contender to our already extensive list of the best true wireless earbuds out there sooner rather than later.
