Google has revealed the Pixel Buds A, although seemingly ahead of schedule. The budget earbuds will support Bluetooth Fast Pair and retain the Pixel Buds' design. The Pixel Buds A will be available in multiple colours, too.

Google has revealed the Pixel Buds A, having leaked the earbuds last month in an email newsletter. The Pixel Buds A series is not ready for primetime yet though, as the company deleted its tweet shortly after posting it. Nonetheless, many people saw it and grabbed a screenshot before Google removed it.

As expected, the Pixel Buds A are almost indistinguishable from the Pixel Buds. Google has gone with a grey contrasting colour on the white Pixel Buds A instead of the black it uses on the Pixel Buds, but that is about it. Last month's newsletter confirmed that Google plans to sell the Pixel Buds A in more colours, including green.

Most features and specifications remain unknown, currently.  However, the company's deleted tweet confirms that the Pixel Buds A supports Fast Pair with devices running Android 6.0 or later. Google promises that Fast Pair will provide the earbuds with 'one-tap Bluetooth pairing', for reference. It is unclear when Google plans to release the Pixel Buds A too, although we expect the earbuds to arrive no later than May 20, the end date for Google I/O 2021.

Google is expected to launch the Pixel 5a soon, too. The device will, reputedly, look like the Pixel 4a 5G, as we have covered previously. We suspect that the Pixel on which the Pixel Buds A are resting is Pixel 4a 5G in white though, rather than the Pixel 5a. Google sells the white edition in only a few markets, including the US.
