Google accidentally revealed the name and appearance of its unannounced Pixel Buds A earbuds on Twitter. The tweet – which was quickly deleted – hints at a quick presentation of the wireless earbuds. We already know this.
Google Pixel Buds A leaked
Google introduced the Pixel Buds earbuds at its Made by Google event in late 2019. These earplugs are not released in the Netherlands. Now a new model is arriving.
Although Google quickly took down the tweet in question, several users quickly took a screenshot. Below you see the tweet, which betrays that the earbuds will be named ‘Google Pixel Buds A’. Google also reveals that the earbuds are suitable for renewed Fast Pair coupling technology. This connects the Bluetooth earbuds automatically and faster with your smartphone. There are more earbuds with Fast Pair support, including from JBL and OnePlus.
The image with the tweet also reveals that the Pixel Buds A will at least come out in white. A previously leaked image of the usually reliable 9to5Google indicates that a model with a white storage box and green earplugs will also appear.
According to 9to5Google, the Pixel Buds A are probably not suitable for smart control on the earbuds themselves. That would be a difference with the Pixel Buds, on which you can adjust the volume by swiping over the earbuds. The Pixel Buds A also lack a handy notification light in the box that indicates the status of the battery. Other differences are still unclear. Presumably, the Pixel Buds A will be cheaper than the $ 179 Pixel Buds.
More about Google I / O
It looks like Google is planning to officially announce the Pixel Buds A later this month. The company will hold its annual – digital – Google I / O event starting May 18, at which it typically introduces new products. It also traditionally tells more about the latest Android version. That is Android 12, of which the latest test version has just been released. The stable Android 12 update will be released at the end of this summer. Google may soon also present the Pixel 5a 5G, which will succeed the Pixel 4a series.
