Samsung Unveils a Limited-Edition Pokémon Version of the 'Galaxy Buds 2'

— May 24, 2022 — Tech
Samsung is now adding to its list of creature-collecting tech with a limited-edition pair of ‘Galaxy Buds 2’ earbuds. A Pokémon-inspired version of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 was recently unveiled in South Korea, and to accompany the phone's release, Samsung has announced a pair of matching earbuds.

Equipped with a Pokéball case, the ‘Galaxy Buds 2’ comes with multiple Pokémon stickers that feature popular Pokémon like Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, MewTwo, and more. The stickers offer fans the opportunity to customize their Galaxy Buds case but are chosen at random to provide select fans with a one-of-a-kind holographic MewTwo sticker. Arriving in five different colorways, including onyx, white, lavender, and graphite, the Pokéball case can fit all versions of the Galaxy Buds lineup.

The Pokémon Galaxy Buds 2 will be available starting May 20, 2022.
