Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy S10 event, new information about the company's upcoming wireless earphones was released. The details are from FCC and Samsung Turkey. They include a name confirmation and a partial picture of the accessory's charging case, which is expected to be the successor to Samsung's Gear IconX earphones.
The first news tip is about Reddit, where users have found that the company's Turkish website lists "Galaxy Buds" on the warranty information page.

It's not clear if this is a USB-C charging port, but since the latest generation of IconX had a USB-C port, it's safe to assume that Samsung will keep this choice with its new wireless earphones.
What else we can expect from the earphones: The Bluetooth login confirmed Bluetooth 5.0 for the device and a leak of SamMobile indicated that the Galaxy Buds offer 8GB of onboard memory and improve battery life , We'll probably learn more about the Galaxy Unpacked event in a few weeks, so stay tuned.
