Google I / O 2021 is just a few after weeks, but at a preliminary stage at its annual developer conference, Google may just be a coincidence confirmed the existence of Pixel Buds A on Twitter.
In a tweet from the official Android Twitter account, which was later deleted, Google showed a new version of its Pixel Buds wireless headphones, while mentioning features such as “quality sound, ” One-touch Bluetooth pairing and updated quick pairing.
While Google may have fired the gun in the Pixel Buds A announcement, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Google is working on an update to last year’s Pixel Buds, which came out in the spring of 2020.
Earlier this spring, 9to5Google publish a report from a source who claims that Google is preparing to launch Pixel Buds A as an updated and cheaper approach to standard Pixel Buds, which will feature the same overall design in a handful of new colors, including all-white paint on a tweet screenshot above.
Many people expected that Google would officially announce the new Pixel Buds A on Google I / O 2021, and while Google has since deleted the tweet, the timing of what appears to be random seems to suggest that it may indeed have been Google’s original plan. Unfortunately, the deleted tweet doesn’t mention anything about price or availability, so we may have to sit back and wait for more official details from Google.
During Google’s last quarterly revenue call last week, Google CEO Sundar Pichai noted that there will soon be some “significant product updates and announcements,” which along with Pixel Buds A may include Pixel 5a, some new security cameras from Nest, and more.
We have contacted Google for an official statement on his earlier tweet about Pixel Buds A and will update the story if we hear. In the meantime, we’ve been on the lookout for more news from Google as we approach the official launch of Google Google I / O 2021 on May 18.
