If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s Samsung finding a way to leak its own products. And the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have become the company’s worst kept secret.
Samsung’s latest wireless earbuds have been the subject of a couple of different leaks, one from Samsung’s own Galaxy Buds app on Android and iOS. The app tells us just about everything there is to know about the upcoming true-wireless earbuds.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Samsung has leaked a pair of its earbuds through its mobile app, as the company also detailed the Galaxy Buds+ in this way. Which makes us wonder whether Samsung is doing it on purpose or just not learning from past mistakes.
What to Expect From the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live
Thanks to a leak from the Galaxy Buds app on iOS and Android, we’ve learned a great deal about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Buds Live.
Probably the most essential feature the app leaked about the upcoming bean-shaped earbuds is the inclusion of active noise cancellation. You can toggle this feature on and off within the app.
Another app-based feature we learned about is Find My Earbuds. As you might expect, this feature will help you find one or both of your buds should they go missing. This is a pretty standard feature for higher-end true-wireless earbuds, so it only makes sense that Samsung would include it.
Lastly, the app detailed the touch controls offered on the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live. There’s also a toggle to disable touch controls if you’re not into that sort of thing.
This is how you will have to put in your Samsung Galaxy Buds Live (or BEANS).

A previous leak from WinFuture broke down some of the specs for the upcoming earbuds. So you can expect 4.5 hours of estimated battery life, three microphones, and 12mm drivers pumping the sound into your eardrums.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Price and Availability
The one thing missing from these leaks is release information, including the price. However, Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Buds Live on August 5th at 10AM ET during its Unpacked event.
The WinFuture leak suggests that Samsung’s wireless earbuds will retail for $169, which sounds like a reasonable price for a pair of true-wireless earbuds with active noise cancelation. For example, Apple’s Airpods Pro (how to choose between the AirPods and AirPods Pro) with active noise cancellation sell for $249.
