For those who remember the SGH-E700 clamshell mobile phone from 2003 or the SGH-T100 in 2001, these geeky Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro cases may look familiar. Not much detail has been revealed about them except that they’re only available in South Korea until January 31st. The screens on the lids may work and could show time, but more than likely, these are just decals. Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds were unveiled earlier this week at the company’s Unpacked event. Read more for more pictures of the case and a video review of the earbuds.
Unlike its predecessor, Galaxy Buds Pro separates your voice from unwanted sounds using three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit (VPU). Plus, they use both Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Ambient Sound to adapt to your surroundings and optimize your audio experience. That’s right, they can recognize when you’re speaking, and then automatically switch between canceling nearby sounds or amplifying them. For added immersion, they offer 360 Audio with Dolby Head Tracking technology, which enables you to stay at the center of any scene.
