Samsung Galaxy Buds2 price

Industry insider, Yogesh, has exclusively shared with us the expected Galaxy Buds2 price. According to him, the Galaxy Buds2 will cost anywhere between USD 149 and USD 169 (approx Rs 11,000 to Rs 12,500). This suggests the Galaxy Buds2 will be priced similar to its predecessor, the Galaxy Buds+, which were launched at USD 149. Notably, the Galaxy Buds+ are currently selling for USD 99 (approx Rs 7,300). This price tag puts the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 in direct competition with the Beats Studio Buds, which cost USD 149 in the US. While the Galaxy Buds2 price in India is still under wraps, we are assuming that these earphones will cost around the same in the Indian market, which could be between Rs 11,000 and Rs 13,000.

These earphones will have wear detection and two mics on each earbud. According to the FCC listing, the Galaxy Buds2 will have a 60mAh battery in each earbud and a 500mAh battery in the charging case. While the charging case will support 2.5W charging, the earbuds will feature a 0.6W charging speed.
