New Pixel 6 leak reveals an important design change

  New Pixel 6 leak reveals an important design change The Pixel 5 was a disappointment in terms of specs and power, but 2021 might bring Pixel fans devices that would be a lot more exciting than last year’s “flagship.” For starters, rumors said last year that Google and Samsung are working on a custom processor that could power Pixel handsets and other gadgets. This would allow Google to free itself from Qualcomm and better control one of the most important smartphone components. Separately, Google is also supposedly working on a foldable Pixel, which would mark the company’s first attempt in this smartphone form factor.

It appears that Google 's new earphones, the Pixel Buds A , are coming soon. 9to5 Google noticed that Google itself included an image of the new earbuds in a marketing email sent to people on the Google Nest mailing list. According to the outlet, the Pixel Buds A will be pretty much the same, design-wise, as Google 's current Pixel Buds , but they'll come in different colors. The touch controls should also be the same as on the Pixel Buds , and there's no clear indication on what, exactly, will change in terms of specifications.

The Google Pixel Buds A will reportedly be the company's next true wireless audio product, according to a new report citing industry sources. Apparently, Google sent out a mass email to Nest users that included both the name of the new earbuds as well as an image. The image shows a set of green-colored buds and a companion case. The Google Pixel Buds A appear to be very close in design to the originals, so it will be interesting to see what Google cuts as far as features go to keep the price down.

The official Android Twitter account just revealed some previously unannounced new audio hardware, by tweeting (and then deleting) a post about the Pixel Buds A-Series. The post itself didn't say much about the new earbuds other than that they include Google's new fast Bluetooth pairing experience that is already rolling out in the new Fitbit Luxe wearable.

9to5Google spotted the tweet, and has reported on a number of rumors about upcoming Pixel Buds, which may ship in new white and green colors along with their updated Bluetooth hardware. The "A" designation could imply that they'll come in at a lower price point than their predecessors that launched at $179, but the rumors indicate their touch controls will still be the same. Google's virtual I/O conference is scheduled to start on May 18th, and perhaps we'll get some confirmed information about these then, if not sooner.

Leaks Hint That Google Has New Pixel Buds and a Nest Security Cam In Store

  Leaks Hint That Google Has New Pixel Buds and a Nest Security Cam In Store The pandemic has thrown gadget release schedules all out of wack, so while we wait for new devices to officially be announced, leaks today suggest Google’s next two products could be a new Nest security cam and updated Pixel Buds. © Photo: Sam Rutherford Based on new leaks, Google’s upcoming Pixel Buds A will look almost exactly the same as last year’s model but with a slightly different paint job. In an FCC filing spotted by 9to5Google, a new “wireless streaming device” with the model number G3ALP has appeared sporting a similar description to previous Google products, like the Nest Mini and Chromecast with Google TV.

Google released the second generation of its Pixel Buds earlier this year in the US. Despite being a significant step forward from the first gen, there were still numerous issues that make them hard to recommend. Now they're getting a little better thanks to new features to help find misplaced earbuds — and The ability to see battery levels and easily unpair should be coming eventually. It looks like Find My Device integration is coming to more audio accessories than just the new Pixel Buds . Updates to the Fast Pair standard itself are responsible for this new functionality, so Google isn't limiting it to its
