Google has pre-confirmed a new Pixel Buds A-Series model ahead of this month’s Google I / O announcements.
In a tweet now deleted from the @Android account, the company says that the new A-series model will benefit from the one-tap Bluetooth pairing, thanks to the updated Fast Pair experience on Android. There was also an image of the Pixel Buds A-series, which exits the charging case, showing a design matching the 2020 Pixel Buds 2
As much as we can probably guess, but Google, who confirmed the new model and name, did not come before we discontinued Google I / O on 18 May. The company also noted the presence of “quality sound” within the tweet. (By screenshot 9to5Google), But for obvious reasons that marketing claim isn’t going to shine much.
It is not yet clear whether the Pixel Buds A-Series will be an upgrade or budget version of Google’s original wireless buds. The company uses the letter ‘A’ to denote the mid-range version of its Pixel smartphones, so that the same happens here.
The Pixel Buds 2 was much improved over the original and earned four-star reviews last summer. We praised the reliable sound, deep Android integration and lovely design. We were disappointed by the lack of ANC, given the price tag of £ 179 and were not overly impressed with the bass.
Regardless, our reviewer concluded: “Pixel Buds are a small and compact set of true wireless earbuds designed for less discerning listeners who care about portability above all else.”
Along with the new Pixel Buds A-Series, we are also hoping that Google pulls back the curtain with the best Android 12 features, Pixel 5A smartphones and new features for its popular suites and services.
