The Samsung Galaxy Buds2, which are reportedly in mass production as we speak, have just undergone the FCC trial, further confirming they are ready for the store shelves.
The FCC listing gives us a full glimpse of the buds themselves, as well as a detailed look at the case’s specs. Despite coming in as replacements for the Galaxy Buds/Buds+ line of TWS earbuds, the Galaxy Buds2 look more akin to Galaxy Buds Pro with their bulbous outer shell and the lack of wingtips.
They appear to have two mics – an inner and outer one – an IR sensor for wear detection (so they can pause music when you take them out), and seemingly no outer vent, like the one on the Galaxy Buds Pro. This would suggest the lack of active noise cancellation, but reliable tipster Ice universe the Bud2 will offer ANC.
The case itself (EP-QR177) appears to share the charging specs of the Galaxy Buds Pro’ case with 2.5W of rated charging (5v*500mA). The schematic of the case makes it look the same as that of the Galaxy Buds Pro.
Back to Ice universe’s tweets = the Galaxy Buds2 will have better sound and still will have ANC. Whether they’ll have better sound than the Galaxy Buds+ or the Galaxy Buds Pro remains to be seen, but better is better, whichever one it is.

There’s a chance that Samsung reveals the Galaxy Buds2 in July, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3, or in August, in keeping with Galaxy Buds tradition.
