As we approach the Galaxy Unpacked 2024 event on July 8th, leaks and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro are surfacing. The latest images and reports hint at a stem design and several exciting features that could make these earbuds some of the most anticipated releases of the year.

Galaxy Buds 3 Leaked Retail Box and Design

An Instagram user named phonepointdar has posted an image of the retail box of the upcoming Galaxy Buds 3, which likely confirms the latest leaks. The image suggests that the company will launch the Galaxy Buds 3 with a stem design rather than the in-ear style look of the Galaxy Buds 2. The stem appears to be shorter than that of the Galaxy Buds Pro, and the image also shows an LED indicator for charging status.

Galaxy Buds 3 Pro Real-Life Images and Features

A Reddit user in the US claims to have purchased the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro and posted some impressive real-life images. These photos confirm the stem design on the Pro variant, which is consistent with earlier leaks. The Pro variant’s stems appear to be longer than those on the Galaxy Buds 3, which might enable more internal volume and increased battery capacity. The images also show what looks like transparent lids on the earbuds, as well as “Blade Lights” – although it’s unclear what those are.

Features and Specifications

According to recent leaks, both earbuds will offer active noise cancellation (ANC) and Adaptive EQ, but the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro will also feature Ambient Sound and Adaptive ANC. The Galaxy Buds 3 might offer up to 5 hours of battery life with ANC on, similar to the Galaxy Buds 2, while the Pro variant might provide up to 6 hours of playback with ANC on – an upgrade over its predecessor.

In terms of audio setup, the Galaxy Buds 3 might feature a single-driver setup, while the Galaxy Buds 3 Pro might include a dual-driver setup. Their predecessors feature two-way drivers – one woofer and one tweeter – for enhanced audio output. Both variants are also expected to have an IP57 rating for protection against dust and water exposure, which would be an upgrade over the IPX2 rating on the Galaxy Buds 2 and an IPX7 rating on the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.


The Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro are shaping up to be some of the most exciting earbuds releases of the year. With their stem design, ANC, Adaptive EQ, and other features, they could offer a compelling alternative to other premium earbuds on the market. We’ll have to wait until the official launch on July 8th to get all the details, but for now, it’s safe to say that these earbuds are worth keeping an eye on.
