It hasn’t been long since Samsung announced the Galaxy Buds Live, and it’s already expanding the number of color options available to consumers. In its home country, at least, as South Korean wireless carrier KT today announced a bright red variant of the earbuds. KT said the red version of the Galaxy Buds Live was introduced in response to local consumer demand, suggesting this extra color wasn’t planned for release in advance.
KT previously introduced a Mystic Red variant of the Galaxy Note 20 5G, another exclusive for its customers – for now. The Galaxy Buds Live originally launched in Mystic Bronze, Mystic White, and Mystic Black.
As you can see from the above press render, the new Galaxy Buds Live model is pretty much identical to the red Galaxy Buds+ variant Samsung released in South Korea half a year ago. Not only has that model made its way to other Far Eastern countries, but it even eventually hit the United States. So, there’s definitely a chance for this new Galaxy Buds Live version to launch in the West, as well.
As for the earbuds, themselves, the Galaxy Buds Live have been an instant hit in South Korea, together with the Galaxy Watch 3 series. Samsung’s third take on wireless earphones also offers unprecedented repairability due to a remarkably clever design, as well as active noise cancellation, Bluetooth 5.0, 8-hour battery, and quick charging support. Overall, it seems to be a pretty good long-term investment regardless of what your current smartphone is.
