Samsung's new wireless earbuds can do one crucial thing that Apple's AirPods can't

Antonio Villas-Boas/Business InsiderThe new Galaxy Buds will cost $US130 and will be available on March 8.

Samsung announced its new Galaxy Buds wireless earbuds during its Unpacked event on Wednesday.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds come with a slightly new design over the original Galaxy Gear IconX wireless earbuds, and they will come in three different colour options: black, white, and yellow.

The major new feature on the Galaxy Buds actually has mostly to do with its charging case. The case itself can be charged wirelessly, which conveniently complements the Galaxy S10’s newfound reverse wireless charging ability. That means you’ll be able to place the Galaxy Buds on the back of a Galaxy S10 phone and charge the buds wirelessly.

While this is a pretty nifty feature for the Galaxy Buds,recent leaks have hinted that Apple is working on an AirPods case that can charge wirelessly, which could come with Apple’s upcoming AirPods 2.

The buds will cost $US130 when they’re released on March 8. Anyone interested in the Galaxy S10 should know that Samsung is throwing in the Galaxy Buds when you pre-order the device up until March 7.
