The Galaxy Buds will also likely feature Bluetooth 5.0, compared to Bluetooth 4.2 on the Gear IconX.
Samsung launched the Gear IconX earlier this year before Apple even had a chance to announce their own candy-cane like AirPods.
Samsung announced the latest generation of the wearable tech, Samsung Gear Fit2 and Samsung Gear IconX at the Galaxy Note 7 launch event today in New Delhi. Gear Fit2 is the second generation device after the Samsung Gear Fit, and the fundamentals have not changed coming from the first generation.
Samsung's Gear IconX wireless earbuds and its refreshed Gear Fit 2 recently surfaced online thanks to a leak. But now Samsung seems to have confirmed them, when the duo also temporarily showed up on Samsung's S Health website.
Samsung is now preparing to launch two new products out of which, one would be a sequel to its Gear Fit fitness tracking band, while the other would be a pair of cordless, Bluetooth earbuds. One can expect to see the two devices at IFA this year.
