If you are a fan of Pokémon and are eyeing the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, there’s a piece of good news for you.
Samsung has just announced three new special editions of the earbuds. And as you might have guessed, all of the Pokémon-themed.
Want to know which Pokémon are the three versions based on? They are Jigglypuff, Snorlax, and Ditto, which are three of the most loved Pokémon.
The special versions come with special cases that basically make you feel like Ash Ketchum from the Pokémon franchise.
That said, it’s just the case that has received the special Pokémon treatment. For the buds, they are the same as the regular Samsung Galaxy Buds 2. That means the colors of the buds are standard and do not match the colors of the charging case.
Another thing to note is that the special edition Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 appears to be South Korea exclusive. The pricing is in Korean currency, and the official press release is in Korean too. There’s no mention of an international release.
So, right now, the only option to get the Pokémon-themed Galaxy Buds 2 would be to import them. But if you are currently in South Korea, you can visit one of the Samsung stores and pick up the special versions of the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 right now.
The press release also mentions online orders. So, that’s a plus. Already have a Samsung Galaxy Buds 2? In that case, you can get the Pokémon Case Package for your currently owned Galaxy Buds 2. That will let you transform the regular version into a special edition.
Samsung says that these packages will be available through the online shopping mall. If you are wondering, there’s nothing special about the Pokémon-themed Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 hardware.
That means you will enjoy the same features as the regular version of the True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds.
That includes Bluetooth 5.2 for easy and reliable wireless connections, up to 7.5 hours of battery life from the buds, IPX2 water-resistant rating, and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
In addition, the Pokémon-themed Galaxy Buds 2 has the same design. And if you didn’t know, the lightweight and small nature of the earbuds makes them highly comfortable to wear.
You also get the “Earbud fit test” that will make sure that your ears have the right seal to get the best possible ANC experience. Note that this test feature is only available through the Galaxy Wearable app.
Don’t need the cute aesthetics of Pokémon-themed Samsung Galaxy Buds 2? You can get the regular version for a great discount.
But do note that the deal is available for a limited time. So, if you want to purchase with a discount, you need to be quick about it.
