Samsung would be making a new version of its Gear IconX wireless headphones to present during the first months of 2019. Although it transpired that the firm would abandon this brand, opting for a new alternative (the Samsung Buds) now seems to be back on track with a new improved version.
These headphones, compatible with the virtual assistant Bixby and destined -principally- to the market of wearables, would arrive with 8GB of internal storage and would be available in the range of colors white, black and yellow, as highlighted by SamMobile.
Thus, according to the transcended, this new version of the wireless headphones would be identified with the model number SM-R170 and it is expected that they also have a greater autonomy of use, greater than 7 hours independently that offers its initial version.

The source also highlights that it is possible for Samsung to integrate its Gear IconX headphones with the audio technology of AKG, the manufacturer of Harman products that was recently acquired by the South Korean multinational, although this could considerably increase the price of the new headphones.
In addition, rumors also indicate that the successors of the Samsung Gear Sport smart watch and the Gear Fit 2 wristband would arrive. Let’s remember that a few days ago there was also news about an imminent presentation of the Galaxy Sport, a smart watch that would be destined to replace its predecessors Gear Sport and Galaxy Watch.
Will it be possible for Samsung to present together its new smart watch and its new headphones? We do not know. For the moment, the source mentions that the IconX Gears would also join the Galaxy family, adopting it.
The truth is that, for now, they are just rumors and there is no official confirmation from the South Korean company. Maybe we should not wait too long to get to know them, since a new edition of the CES, the most important technological fair in the world and held every year in Las Vegas (Nevada), United States, will be held soon.
