While the leaker didn't reveal the source of the specs, and we have no way to verify the, they do corroborate previous rumors and give us a decent idea of what expect from Samsung's next pair of true wireless earbuds.

According to SnoopyTech, the Galaxy Buds 2 could also have a slightly larger battery (61 mAh over the original's 58 mAh) and will offer 8 hours of playback versus the first-gen Buds' 6 hours. A further 20 hours of battery life can reportedly be had from the charging case.
With ANC activated, battery life could apparently drop to 5 hours, with 13 more provided by the case. Other tipped specs include wireless Qi charging, a dual-speaker design with an 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter per bud, and a trio of mics.
The Galaxy Buds 2 could have colors similar to the original, with SnoopyTech posting images we've seen before from leaker Evan Blass; these are claimed to be official renders of the earbuds. The alleged colors include the standard black and white, as well as lavender purple, olive green and yellow — notably, we've seen purple and green models in previous apparent leaks, but the yellow version is new.
If these specs are to be be believed, then the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 could come with some rather solid upgrades over their predecessors and present a challenge for the likes of the Google Pixel Buds 2 and AirPods Pro.
Samsung already has a suite of wireless earbuds with strong specs and sound, including the Galaxy Buds Plus, Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy Buds Live. But the Galaxy Buds 2 could incorporate the main features of those earbuds in a single package.
Pricing remains the main sticking point as rumors have the Galaxy Buds 2 slate to cost between $175 and $237; if Samsung can hit the former price tag, then it may have a serious contender for our best wireless earbuds list.
