A recently-leaked official-looking video displays Samsung’s Galaxy Beans in all their glory!
About The Product
Samsung is expected to announce its upcoming earbuds during next month’s Unpacked event, along with various other highly-anticipated devices like the Mirror Gold colorway for the Galaxy Z Flip (and a 5G version), the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold, Galaxy Note 20, two Galaxy tablets, and the Galaxy Watch 3.
The new earbud design was revealed a few months ago in a leak, and since then, we’ve heard minor bits of information about their specifications. A closer look at the Galaxy Beans revealed that they are available in three colors, and they look amazing… a lot like beans!

The leaked video was posted by Twitter user WalkingCat and then retweeted by Max Weinbach from XDA.
The short video displays the device in three colors – black, white, and the new copper color that looks a lot like the leaked Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.
The video contains a quick hint at the earbuds’ Active Noise Cancellation (ANC): “keep the noise out. Let the sound in.”
Active Noise Cancellation is a new feature for Samsung earbuds, as no such functionality was available on the first two generations of Galaxy Buds.
Some leaked specs show that the Beans will feature a 13mm one-way speaker and will cost about £179, nearly £50 over the price of the original Galaxy Buds. However, customers can shave off up to £30 with Samsung’s trade-in program.
It’s nice to see Samsung have fun with the shape and design of their new devices. Could that be what the market needs? Redesigned tech that resembles mundane objects or food? What do you think?
