The manufacturer has to formally submit its patent before some products can be produced and launched in the market. After the recent filing of such a patent by Samsung, there has been speculation in the technology community.
This is because Samsung’s patent hints at a potential Truly Wireless Earbuds (TWS), which we guess could come with multiple interesting features. A few days ago, let’s Digital highlighted the earbuds in their report. According to them, Samsung’s potential product will come with a removable neckband that is suitable for underwater use!
Does Samsung launch water-usable TWS earbuds?
According to the published news, on March 3 this year, Samsung filed a patent for the earbud in question with the World Intellectual Property Organization or WIPO. From the reporter’s claim, we know that the patent is a wearable device. This gives us an idea of the design of a completely new Truly wireless earbud that Samsung has focused on manufacturing.
According to the report, Samsung’s potential earbuds will come with a removable neckband and a completely waterproof design. The company’s earbuds are currently available with an IP8 rating, which prevents water and dust.
However, so-called waterproof earbuds also have restrictions on staying underwater for more than 30 minutes. Moreover, they are more likely to be damaged in deep water use. However, it is rumored that Samsung’s new patent will come with relatively more waterproof capabilities.
The patent design that Let’s Go Digital has unveiled reveals the similarity of the Galaxy Buds with Samsung’s potential earbuds. With the inclusion of removable neckbands, this upcoming device can be used as a neckband-style wireless earphone. From this, it seems that the company is providing removable neckbands so that the earbuds do not get lost underwater.
In terms of features, our earbuds can come with multiple microphones and sensors. Moreover, it will add various health benefits. At the same time, it will have a great touch control. However, there are still doubts about the effectiveness of this feature underwater.
While speculation has been rife since the patent was filed, it may be wrong to have any definite idea about Samsung’s product in question. Only time will tell whether this kind of device will come true in the future.
