Google’s new wireless earbuds are on the way. The Pixel Buds A-Series has even been on Twitter for a while.
At 9:30 pm Google sent via the twitter account of Android a tweet officially announcing the Pixel Buds A-Series. A mistake as it turned out, because barely ten minutes later Google had already deleted the tweet. No product page for the earphones has yet been created in the Google webshop, so they are certainly not for sale yet. With the tweet, Google did announce the official name of the new generation of Pixel Buds for the first time.
Furthermore, the tweet does not teach us much about the technical specifications of the earbuds. Google talks about a fast pair function to connect the earbuds to your smartphone with a simple tap on your screen. Google also promises sound of ‘high quality’, but all ears promise that. In terms of design, we do not immediately see many differences with the Pixel Buds 2 that Google launched in the summer of 2020. The black edge of the earphones and charging case has been replaced by a gray edge. The A-Series in the name could indicate that the ears could be cheaper. A Google Pixel 4a is also cheaper than a Google Pixel 4.
Google may unveil the Pixel Buds A-Series at its upcoming I / O conference starting May 18. According to rumors, the Pixel 5a will also be launched during that event, although there is still a lot of mystery about the mid-range smartphone.
Where to get it?
Google does not sell its Pixel products directly in Belgium, so it will probably not be that easy for us to get a pair of Pixel Buds A-Series. That is also the case for the previous generation Pixel Buds 2. For example, you often have to go to the German Google Store and get it in our country via courier services. The Pixel smartphones are now available through Fnac. The newest Pixel 5 costs 628.95 euros.
