Google Pixel Buds A-Series true wireless stereo (TWS) earphones have once again surfaced on the Internet, this time in a tweet by a company official account, as per a report. The tweet, which is now deleted, showed that the Pixel Buds A-Series have a similar design as the Pixel Buds which are currently available in the US. The earbuds were previously spotted in an email containing a promotional slide of Nest products, and also surfaced on the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) website.
As per the tweet (archived) by Android, the account that Google uses to promote new features in the Android operating system or Google services, the “Pixel Buds A-Series” offers Fast Pair technology for quick Bluetooth pairing. The tweet, spotted by XDA Developers, also highlighted that these earphones will be compatible with all Android smartphones running on Android 6.0 and above.
As mentioned, this is not the first time that these affordable earphones have been leaked on the Internet. The most recent development in this regard was earlier this month when Google Nest users reportedly received an email in which a promotional slide showcased various Nest products as well as a small image of TWS earphones having dark green elements. Google already offers Pixel Buds in a Quite Mint colour option in the US, but it has Black accents. The green in these earphones – now pretty much confirmed to be the Pixel A-Series – is much darker than the Quite Mint Pixel Buds.
Additionally, two TWS earphones with model numbers GPQY2 and G7YPJ, believed to be of Google Pixel Buds A-Series, were spotted on the FCC website (via 9to5Google). The listing says that the device is equipped with Bluetooth v5.2 and measures 27x20x15 mm, which is similar to the Pixel Buds available in the US.
