Google Pixel Buds A. (or ‘A-Series’ as they are named) Google itself has been able to confirm twice – first in a supposed tweet (already removed) from an official account on both a German site, adding the possibility that a new, more affordable version of real wireless headsets is coming.
The Twitter tweet came from an official @ Android account and was presumably present for all ten minutes before it was condensed. It refers to the ‘new Pixel Buds A-Series’ and mentions ‘one-tap Bluetooth pairing with an updated Fast Pair experience’.
Twitter also features a Buds A-Series image (as in the image above) that reveals a true wireless in-ear headset and a charging case that looks identical to previous Google Pixel Buds (albeit completely white, with a white border). But apart from the look and feel of the ‘Fast Pair’ feature, the tweet doesn’t look like anything else from the new in-ear headphones.
This in itself is significant, but the Pixel Buds A-Series was also presumably seen in a Google search – specifically the name itself was mentioned in the proposed results under the German Google store, according to the Cashys Blog on the German Techys site. While we didn’t find the same, suggesting that it could have been taken offline, it’s still a little more official support for the Google In-Ear Headset.
Google Pixel Buds A: Affordable Real Wireless In-Ear Headphones?
What we’ve heard a little about Google Pixel Buds A suggests that they look similar to Google Pixel Buds launched last year, although they may have a lower price tag while retaining features like touch controls to adjust music playback and use Google Assistant.
We originally heard rumors that Buds A was fired in April, but since that day has come and gone, we expected them to announce together Google Pixel 5a during Google IO 2021starting May 18-20 and will be published in mid-2021.
