  • Samsung is rumored to be redesigning its Galaxy Buds 3 with an AirPods-like stem.
  • The redesign could improve call quality and also pave the way for enhanced AI features.
  • The new Galaxy Buds 3 could make an appearance at Samsung’s Unpacked event in July.

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds have carved a comfortable niche in the wireless earbud market thanks to their audio quality and integration with Samsung’s ecosystem. But as someone who has personally struggled with the in-ear fit of bulkier stemless designs, I’m not alone in finding them less than ideal for smaller ears. However, a major design change could be on the horizon.

According to a report by The Chosun, Samsung is set to introduce a stem to the Galaxy Buds 3, moving away from the kidney bean shape and towards a design more akin to Apple’s AirPods. If this turns out to be accurate, it will be the first significant redesign for Samsung’s earbuds since the series launched in 2019.
