Earlier this week Samsung officially confirmed that its “Galaxy Unpacked” event will be held on January 14. In this event, the company is expected to launch the much-awaited Galaxy S21 series. But now, it looks like the South Korean tech giant will launch the unannounced Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartTags at the event as well.
According to a recent post shared by Evan Blass, a leaked marketing render of a promotion shows either the Galaxy Buds Pro or SmartTags will come alongside the Galaxy S21 Ultra pre-order.
Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartTags
A lot of reports have hit the web talking about the upcoming Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy SmartTags recently, and we have a lot of information about both of them already. So it’s widely expected that we can see both of these truly wireless earbuds on January 14. Previous leaks show the Galaxy Buds Pro will come in three color options — black, violent, and silver. Reportedly, they will feature active noise cancellation and a beefier 500mAh battery.
On the other hand, Galaxy SmartTag is a Tile-like tracker that uses Bluetooth to connect with nearby devices. It will let Galaxy owners find their misplaced devices. Powered by a replaceable button cell battery, the device relieves the user of its regular charging. According to the leaks, SmartTag is a small square device with rounded corners and a hole at one edge for a keychain or something like that.
The new pre-order poster indicates the Galaxy Buds Pro may expectedly arrive as a pre-order gift with the (presumably more expensive) Galaxy S21 Ultra model. The pre-orders for the other two models in the Galaxy S21 lineup — the Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus — may come with the Galaxy Buds Live instead. Since there’s less than a week left for the Samsung event, we should get to see these devices soon.
