As we approached Google I / O 2021, the rumor started to point to new hardware, including a Pixel 5A and Pixel Buds A, a set of inexpensive wireless headsets that would fit below the company’s main pair . Google appears to have moved ahead, however, in accordance, according to 9to5Google, a new email contains an image of olive green Pixel Buds that are not part of the current schedule. The interior of the case also has the same color as the buttons, which is not the case with the second generation Pixel Buds. Another clue that they are new is that the inner part of the headphones is also green.
So, with those things considered, we are probably seeing the next Pixel Buds A in this image. They look practically identical to normal Pixel Buds, although the second LED inside the charging case has disappeared or is simply not visible in this photo. There is always the chance that someone messed with the color tone here, so it suits the Pixel 5 better, but that would be a little unusual.
A recent request from the Federal Communications Commission is likely for these headsets. We will have to wait for Google’s eventual announcement to see what features have been cut if the company really plans to sell them at a noticeably lower price than standard Pixel Buds. With those that cost $ 179, Google may aim to reach a price range of $ 99 or $ 129.
Google’s second-generation Pixel Buds had some connection stability issues when they were released, which the company tried to resolve over several firmware updates. But some customers continue to encounter issues like glitches and other bugs, so I hope Google will say a few things about the strength of the connection when it comes time to announce these Pixel Buds A.
