Samsung Galaxy Buds

Samsung is all set to introduce the Galaxy S10 trio in a couple of days time, but those aren’t all the number one smartphone maker will be unravelling. The Galaxy Buds – the successor to the Gear IconX (2018) – is also expected to make an entrance. The good news is that they may come as a bundle with pre-orders of the Galaxy S10 in Malaysia.

Following a tip off, our friends at SoyaCincau revealed that the Galaxy Buds have passed SIRIM certification. Baring model number SM-R710, the wireless earbuds were given the green light by SIRIM on 13 February, which means its ripe for a local introduction.

In Vietnam, the earbuds are offered for free for every Galaxy S10 pre-order unit. With that, there’s reason to believe that Malaysian consumers will enjoy a similar offer. Samsung Malaysia has traditionally been super generous with its bundles and pricing for its flagship series.

According to Sammobile, aesthetically, the earbuds and carry case are similar to the Gear IconX (2018). The case now supports wireless charging, which makes it easy to recharge when juice is low.
