According to the latest news, These wireless earbuds with the model number SM-R190 have recently received the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) certification in the US. This indicates that the Korean firm is making its way to launch these earbuds alongside the Galaxy S21 series.
The certification also reveals the case of these earbuds that is in a rounded square shape. The diagram of the earbud’s case also suggests its battery capacity of 472mAh.
The Galaxy Buds Pro is expected to come with a similar in-ear type design as the Galaxy Buds+. These earbuds are likely to support advanced and improved Active Noise cancellation feature. They will also support an advanced Ambient mode that allows users to keep in touch with the surroundings by letting the external noise to pass within the earbuds.
Along with these new earbuds, Samsung is also working on its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S21 series. Both of these devices are expected to be released in mid-January of 2021 at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event. To know more about the specs of the Galaxy S21 line up consider the below articles.
Samsung could soon rollout Blood Pressure feature to Galaxy Watch users in Malaysia
Samsung makes the most excellent smartwatches in the industry which introduce wonderful features. All the Galaxy Watch features are not available in certain regions due to legal limitations. However, Samsung is apparently preparing to roll out Blood Pressure feature to Galaxy Watch users in Malaysia.
According to the information, the Malaysian Medical Device Authority approved the usage of the Samsung Blood Pressure app in Malaysia. The company got approval from the authority in mid-November and is now ready to let users use the Blood Pressure app through a compatible Samsung Watch.
As mentioned in the document approved by the Malaysian authority, Samsung’s Blood Pressure App is a software-only, mobile medical application intended for use with a compatible Samsung Galaxy Watch and Phone to create, record, store and display blood pressure information.
Moreover, the Blood Pressure app determines the systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as pulse rate, and provides values and history charts following calibration with an upper-arm, cuff-based blood pressure monitor. Notably, The BP App is intended for over-the-counter (OTC) use in adults 22 years and older.
It’s worth mentioning that there is no mention of the Samsung ECG app in the database, which means, it may release later. However, it’s most likely that the company may introduce both ECG and Blood Pressure features for Malaysian consumers at the same time.
Samsung’s Blood Pressure monitoring feature works through the calibration process. As part of monitoring blood pressure, the user having a compatible Galaxy Watch must have to enter the reading from an actual blood pressure monitor in the app three times.
Since the application was registered by Samsung itself, we assume that the application is already developed and tested internally. Notably, Huawei and Apple also did the same for their smart wearables to introduce such kinds of features in Malaysia.
