Given they’re now a part of lots of people’s on a regular basis carry, there’s good cause for wi-fi earbud makers to get extra artistic with the charging instances these units depend on: inside cause. Eschewing pocket-ability altogether, Samsung has created a Poké Ball case for the case its Galaxy Buds 2 cost in, and it’ll solely be accessible in restricted portions,
Pokémon has been wildly well-liked for over 1 / 4 of a century at this level, so it makes full sense for any firm to try to hitch its wagon to the model. Actually, Pokémon + wi-fi earbuds is just not a completely new concept. In 2020, Razer revealed the same collaboration with a pair of vivid yellow Pikachu-themed wi-fi earbuds that docked and charged inside a duplicate Poké Ball. It wasn’t an ideal Poké Ball reproduction—its proportions have been a little bit skewed, just like Nintendo’s personal Poké Ball Plus controller—however it was nonetheless charming.
Samsung is taking a unique strategy with its Pokémon tie-in. The Poké Ball seems extra precisely proportioned to what’s used within the video games and cartoons, however it’s truly designed as a holder for the Galaxy Buds 2’s personal charging case, which nestles inside. The bundle is at the moment listed on Samsung’s Korean web site with a price ticket of 134,000 gained, or roughly the equal to the $110 that Samsung is now asking for the Galaxy Buds 2, and comes with a handful of Pokémon stickers for customizing the charging case inside.
You may’t order one simply but, and as soon as accessible, Samsung will solely be releasing it in restricted portions, however the Poké Ball cowl can also be promised to be appropriate with the Galaxy Buds Professional and Galaxy Buds Stay, which makes us hopeful that Samsung may even offer this as a standalone accent for current Galaxy Buds house owners.
