A patent application recently unearthed by Samsung indicate that the South Korean tech giant may be developing innovative, truly wireless earbuds with impressive features.
Samsung Galaxy Buds are specially designed for swimming and provide some health data in the process.
This patent applies to waterproof Galaxy Buds with detachable neck straps. The waterproof level of this pair of new earplugs will be higher than the IPX7 level, which is the highest level Samsung can obtain among the latest products in this field.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy Buds 2 are IPX7, which means they can withstand a depth of no more than 1 meter for 30 minutes.
This also means that the earplugs are not designed for underwater use, because Samsung clearly recommends not to use these earplugs while swimming.
The shortcomings of the current TWS Galaxy buds may be the driving factor for the development of new devices. The detachable neck strap is an additional accessory to ensure that both buds are safe while swimming without losing them.
According to the patent, the new TWS Galaxy Buds will be equipped with multiple built-in microphones, sensors, touch control and two-way speaker systems.
Some sensors will enable the device to collect health data while in use, such as calories burned, speed, and power.
However, the detailed information contained in the patent document certainly does not include the possible release date of the device. There is no guarantee that this device will become a reality in the future.
