According to a new patent published by US Patent & Trademark Office, Samsung may be planning to introduce a removable battery in its next version of Samsung Galaxy Buds. Whereas the South Korean manufacturer always tries to put itself ahead of Apple products (AirPods). This may be your next strategy to try to gain advantage.
However, it is important to remember that Samsung is one of the most patented manufacturers every year. Therefore, the fact that they want to register this patent does not mean that it will actually be applied to a product intended for the public.
Apparently these new Galaxy Buds will also have the ability to continue playing music even when the user is changing batteries. It is unclear why a user might want to continue playing music while changing drums, but it certainly will not do.
Galaxy Buds could 'crush' AirPods with their autonomy
As we can see from the patent diagram, the button used to turn the Samsung Galaxy Buds on / off will also be used to open the battery compartment. It is worth remembering that, by way of comparison, the current Galaxy Buds already offer a battery more than twice the capacity of AirPods. Therefore, the possibility of changing batteries "on the go"may present itself as an important extra for many users.
In addition, the possibility has arisen that these new Samsung Galaxy Buds will come with an included mini jack audio input. This would be a very interesting implementation, as it would give users the ability to save their batteries whenever they didn't need to use Galaxy Buds in 'wireless mode'.
Again, it is important to note that there is no indication that this patent will actually be used in a new product. Still, it is interesting to discover the ideas that are being considered by the South Korean manufacturer.
