Samsung is updating its Galaxy Buds 2 Pro with a special audio recording feature that can capture a 360-degree sound from the wearer’s surroundings when recording a video. The sound, also known as 3D audio, will be heard by a viewer exactly as it was perceived by the user, hence creating an immersive and more realistic listening and viewing experience.
The 3D audio uses LE Audio, an advanced new Bluetooth audio technology that not just enhances audio quality, but also contributes to better latency and battery life. The device will record the 360-degree sound through the microphones placed in both the earbud pieces.
In another news, Samsung is also launching a new zooming feature next month within the Camera Controller app which works for the Galaxy Watch 5 and Watch 4. The feature will enable users to remotely control the zoom of their phone camera from the app on their smartwatch.
The 3D audio recording functionality in the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is being initially released for the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 devices only, and later for the upcoming Galaxy S23 lineup.
