This is the Samsung Galaxy launch season and most news stories have something new and interesting to carry about the flagship devices to be unveiled on February 11. The latest leak/rumor talks about the South Korean company offering its Samsung Galaxy Buds+ to those who are buying the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra models of the smartphones being launched. This appears to be limited to the buyers who are placing pre-orders and the off the shelf offer may not hold once the sales start.
Some Improvements Likely in the Galaxy Buds+
For the record, the pre-order process will continue till March 13. That must see a large number of buyers booking the devices since it allows pre-orders for over a month after the official launch of the device. Speaking of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, there is a natural curiosity to know what is different in the Galaxy Buds+ from its predecessor. It is learned that Samsung has fitted a larger or better battery and these wireless earbuds will last as much as 12 hours on a single full charge. This will mean you can manage the full working hours of a day without the charge going out.
This leak is through Evan Blass, who has been a regular at this in the past too. The tweet included an image, which is an official marketing communication from Samsung and features the back panels of both the smartphone models, the Samsung Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra as well as the blue wireless Samsung Galaxy Buds+ with their casing.
It is also being confirmed that the noise cancellation feature is not included in these new earbuds.
Winning Over Customers Through Wireless Earbuds
On previous occasions, Samsung has had to face a lot of negative reaction from the market after the 3.5mm jack was dropped from the design. People were not really very happy with having to invest in wireless earbuds. This move to include the wireless buds as a part of the launch offer on at least the two top-end models will help avoid a similar situation this time.
But, this policy is not followed by the company in all its markets. In certain price-sensitive markets in emerging economies, the strategy is to cut down on the price of the smartphone instead of adding a freebie. It is not clear what course will be adopted this time.
