We are just weeks away from the Samsung Unpacked event on February 20, but that isn’t slowing down the product leaks. After learning that the Galaxy S10 will likely include reverse wireless charging, WinFuture leaked a promotional photo of the Galaxy Buds charging on the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus.
As you can see from the photo below, the Galaxy Buds’ case appears to have a green LED light on the outside that indicates that the product is wirelessly charging while sitting on the back of the Galaxy S10 Plus.

In addition to seemingly confirming Samsung’s reverse wireless charging feature (purportedly dubbed PowerShare), this is our first look at the Galaxy Buds. As these earbuds will likely be replacing the Gear IconX, it should come as no surprise that the overall design hasn’t changed too much.
Despite knowing a good amount about the Galaxy S10, the same cannot be said about the Galaxy Buds. It’s rumored that Samsung’s new wireless earbuds will include Bluetooth 5.0, 8GB of built-in storage, and feature better battery life than that found on the IconX.
WinFuture claims that the Galaxy Buds will retail for 149 euros. This price would undercut Apple’s AirPods by 10 euros. That isn’t much of a price difference, but the Galaxy Buds’ case does appear to include wireless charging while the AirPods’ case currently does not. It could be argued that you get more for your money when buying Samsung’s earbuds.
What do you think about the Galaxy Buds? Would you be willing to pay ~$150 for them? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
