Google is rumored to be working on an affordable version of Pixel Buds truly wireless earphones. These are tipped to named Pixel Buds A similar to the Pixel 4a, an affordable Pixel smartphone variant. It seems like Google has accidentally leaked Pixel Buds A through one of its usual promotion emails sent to its mailing list members.
This particular mail looks like a typical Google marketing mail where it can be seen attracting users to its products and services. However, there is a small difference that 9to5Google folks were quick to spot. The Accessories section within the mail has an image of a product that is yet to be released i.e. the rumored Pixel Buds A. The image is a small one but there are a couple of things that make it clear that these are not the second-gen Pixel Buds launched last year.
The first and foremost thing to note is that the buds shown in the mail are Green but with a different shade. The currently available ones are available in Quite Mint color which is comparatively lighter. The second thing is that the Green color is present on the insides of the charging case as well as the tips and wings of the buds. This is in line with a previous claim about the affordable version's color scheme.
This is pretty much what is known about the alleged Pixel Buds A for now. We are hearing that these will be affordable but an exact pricing or price range has not been mentioned yet. We can expect these to go official during the Google I/O 2021 event later this year alongside other Pixel announcements.
