Google is expected to release two new Pixel devices in Q2 2021, and one in as soon as mid-April. According to a new report, a third-generation Pixel Buds will arrive first and will be followed by a new Pixel smartphone in June. In all likelihood, Google will release the Pixel 5a, the follow-up to last year's Pixel 4a (5G).

Last month, Jon Prosser claimed that Google was developing a Pixel 'Fold', which would presumably be the company's first foldable smartphone. Now, Prosser asserts that Google plans to release some hardware in Q2 2021, and one as soon as next month.

In a tweet, Prosser describes that Google will announce a new set of Pixel Buds in mid-April, albeit without divulging any details about them. This is the first time that we have heard anything about new Pixel Buds, although a mid-April announcement would be just shy of a year since Google released its second-generation Buds.

Additionally, Prosser claims that the company will announce a 'new Google phone' on June 11. Prosser is unsure about which device Google plans to unveil on that date, but we expect it to be sold under the Pixel series. Based on recent leaks, Google's next smartphone will be the Pixel 5a, which may be a minor refinement on the Pixel 4a (5G).

While June may seem overly soon for a new Pixel 'a' smartphone, Google initially planned to announce the Pixel 4a in May 2020. However, Google ended up postponing the device's launch by a few months, just as it did with the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5. If last month's Pixel 5a CAD renders are correct, then the device will have a 6.2-inch OLED display, three cameras, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Other specifications, like its SoC, remain unknown at this stage.
