• Samsung is working on a new Galaxy Buds model reportedly called "Buds X"
  • The model is too "small" to have a label
  • It might be announced during the Galaxy Unpacked event next month

Samsung's upcoming pair of wireless earbuds might be able to do certain things without requiring the user to have a smartphone or smartwatch nearby.

Korean tech giant Samsung has been reportedly at work, creating a new wireless pair of earbuds. The device, believed to be named “Galaxy Buds X,” is allegedly shaped like beans and is expected to offer better features compared to the existing Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus.

While previous reports do not provide clues as to when the device might arrive, a new report claims that it may be released soon. According to some documents over on the FCC website, Samsung has a new Bluetooth audio device coming in the near future. The documents were first spotted by Android Authority.

Per the documents, the new device has the code SM-R180, which places it in line with the Galaxy Buds Plus, which has the model code SM-R175. The documents do not reveal much about the new device except for a few details, such as that it won't feature any branding or labels because it is very “small.”

According to a document titled “Label location,” the device is “so small, so it is impracticable to label with a font size that is four-points or larger and the device does not utilize electronic labeling.”

Interestingly, despite being a small device, the Galaxy Buds X might be packed with technologies designed for a better listening experience.

Per Android Authority, a U.S. trademark application hinted that the upcoming wireless earbuds might include on-device playback features similar to the Gear Icon X. This will allow the Galaxy Buds X to play music without a smartphone or smartwatch nearby. This will be perfect for when working out or when the wearer won't be able to hold other devices.

Previous reports also revealed that the small-sized bean-shaped earbuds will feature active noise cancellation as well as other technologies that allow it to offer “superior audio quality.”

Samsung hasn't announced anything about the device at the moment. The company might announce it during the Galaxy Unpacked event scheduled for Aug. 5.
