As spotted by Twitter account SamCentralTech, and reported by The Verge, the initial "pick your device" screen of the app reveals the names and marketing images for a new Galaxy Watch Active, Galaxy Fit fitness trackers, and Galaxy Buds.

Galaxy Buds are the least known of the three products, serving as Samsung's latest AirPods competitor. They won't be Samsung's first pair of truly wireless earphones, succeeding the Gear IconX in 2016, but rumors suggest they'll be able to charge wirelessly on the back of the upcoming Galaxy S10.

Airpods. Galaxy buds. Somewhere a marketing firm is laughing about how much money they were paid to come up with these terrible names.

I see they’ve sprung for the more traditional design. I know people seem divided on this, but I've always preferred the parallel-running AirPod handles to the standard black lump design.
