The pricier variants of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S20 smartphone – namely, the Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra – will come with Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds+ wireless earbuds.
This is according to leaker Evan Blass, who shared what looks like an official marketing image from Samsung announcing the deal, which will apparently only be valid for pre-orders. The “standard” version of the phone, the Galaxy S20, is not mentioned in the image.
The Galaxy Buds+ are the new version of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds, likely to be announced alongside the Galaxy S20 lineup of phones during Samsung’s Unpacked event on February 11. They will reportedly come with a bigger, 85mAh battery providing 12 hours of playback, and four microphones (instead of two) for better call clarity, but no active noise cancellation.
We don’t know the price for the Galaxy Buds+, but given the old Buds cost $129, getting the Buds+ for free will likely be quite nice. Then again, reports say that the pricier versions of the Galaxy S20 will cost you as much as $2,000, so whether the entire package turns out to be a good deal remains to be seen.
As for the phones themselves, nearly every bit of detail has been revealed prematurely through leaks. We’ll be there on Feb. 11 to bring you the official news – hopefully Samsung still has a surprise or two hidden up its sleeve.
