- Google Pixel Buds A was announced on the official Android Twitter handle ahead of its launch
- However, the tweet was taken down within minutes
- The audio device is expected to launch later this month
Google accidentally revealed the Pixel Buds A on its official Android Twitter handle. The tweet has now been deleted but we managed to take a screenshot. The search engine giant’s upcoming audio device is expected to arrive as an affordable version of the original Pixel Buds.
The tweet confirms the name of the upcoming offering as well as some key features. The Pixel Buds A are expected to debut at Google’s annual I/O developer conference this month.
Google Pixel Buds A officially revealed
The tweet shared by the official account of Android read “Quality sound and quick Bluetooth pairing. The new Pixel Buds A-Series have arrived. Enjoy one-tap Bluetooth pairing with the updated Fast Pair experience on #Android,”
The tweet confirms that the Pixel Buds A will come with Fast Pair that uses Bluetooth Low Energy and the smartphone’s location feature to find and connect to compatible devices with just one tap. The Fast Pair feature is available on devices running Android 6 and above. The image in the tweet shows the upcoming audio device in a white case, while the inner part is grey. Design-wise, the Pixel Buds A look quite like the first generation Pixel Buds.
This isn’t the first time Google has accidentally revealed the Pixel Buds A. Previously, the search engine giant had seemingly revealed the upcoming offering in a marketing email sent to Google Nest users. The truly wireless earbuds were tipped to come in a green colour option as per the last leak.
The A-series branding in the tweet hint that the upcoming audio device will be an affordable offering considering that Google uses it for affordable Pixel phones. We can assume that the Pixel Buds A is close to launching and it will most likely debut alongside the Pixel 5a at Google I/O.
