“The new Pixel Buds A-Series have arrived,” the official Android account tweeted on Tuesday. Except, they have been never ever truly meant to “arrive” this early. Someone, someplace at Google in all probability got a tiny ahead of themselves accidentally scheduling what may possibly otherwise be classified as confidential information and facts at this point of time. The tweet was taken down inside 10 minutes, according to media reports, suggesting this wasn’t one of these situations exactly where Google basically tweeted out its next item. It was an actual error.
That is not to say that this is fresh information and facts. This is in reality the second time that Google has let the Pixel Buds A-Series slip ahead of schedule immediately after seemingly confirming their existence in a promoting e mail in early April. Only this time, their imminent launch appears all but inevitable in the days to come, very possibly at the upcoming Google I/O 2021 developer conference that kicks off May 18.

While the preceding leak confirmed the Pixel Buds A-Series really wireless earbuds will come in a new green colourway, the most current reveal drops a handful of vague technical elements such as “quality sound” and “quick Bluetooth pairing.” They look more or significantly less like the second-gen Pixel Buds launched in 2020 although the “A-series” tagline hints at a more cost-effective value tag that is usually a thing to be excited about particularly given that Google has constructed very a fan following for itself by way of its worth-focused Pixel A-series smartphones.
Speaking of which, the Pixel 5a 5G seems to be appropriate on schedule. The phone will be announced in line with when last year’s a- phone was introduced, which suggests about late July-early August so possibilities are, we may perhaps not hear a lot about it at I/O. The Pixel 5a 5G will be readily available later this year in choose markets — US and Japan only — and just like last year, Google is not preparing to bring a 5G Pixel phone to India once again.
In an best world, the Pixel Buds A-Series would have accompanied the Pixel 5A 5G but then once again, these are outstanding occasions and with tech majors like Apple and Samsung beginning to face the heat of a worldwide semiconductor shortage due to the pandemic, the reality that Google is acquiring prepared to launch new hardware (albeit with restricted availability) comes as a ray of sunshine amid all that is going about the world lately.
