Galaxy Buds 2 could boast better IP rating than original Buds

The Buds 2 could share IPX7 water resistance with the Galaxy Buds Pro, per a new leak.

Published onAugust 4, 2021

  • More Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 details have leaked.
  • The earbuds will reportedly pack five hours of juice with ANC switched on.
  • An IPX7 rating could also feature, according to the tip.

We already know plenty about the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2. Now, a new leak has seemingly revealed the remaining unknowns about the true wireless earbuds.

The leak stems from relatively new tipster Snoopy (h/t Android Police), who revealed a lengthy machine-translated specs sheet relating to the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic earlier this week. As with that leak, we recommend taking these details with a pinch of salt, even if it mirrors several specs uttered by other sources.

Starting off, the Galaxy Buds 2 will reportedly pack an IPX7 rating like the Galaxy Buds Pro, which should withstand intense gym sessions and jogs in the rain. However, a previous report pointed to an IPX2 rating which would provide minimal protection against splashes and sweat. The original Galaxy Buds also pack this rating.

The Galaxy Buds 2 will reportedly feature a 61mAh battery in each bud, with a further 472mAh lurking in the case. This should give users five hours of use with ANC switched on and eight hours with it switched off. In total, the Buds 2 with recharges from the case can give users 28 hours of use.

When you do need to recharge the Buds 2, they can apparently garner 55 minutes of use from just five minutes of charging in the case. It’s unclear if this is use with ANC on or off, though. The case also uses Qi wireless charging.

Finally, in terms of audio, each earbud features three microphones, one 11mm woofer, and one 6.5mm tweeter.

The tipster failed to mention the price, but German publication WinFuture previously quoted €149.99 (~$178), placing the Galaxy Buds 2 between the Buds Pro and original Galaxy Buds.

There’s not too long to wait for confirmation of these specs. Samsung is due to launch the Galaxy Buds 2, alongside a bevy of other devices, on August 11.
