Second-generation TWS Google Pixel Buds hit FCC ahead of anticipated Q2 2020 release
The Pixel Buds are something of an enigma. Announced last October alongside the release of the Pixel 4 series, they still remain unavailable to purchase. Currently in waitlist purgatory, the Pixel Buds may be close to getting a proper release.
Spotted at Taiwanese regulator NCC earlier this week, the FCC has now certified the TWS earbuds too. Appearing in two listings called G1007 and G1008, the Pixel Buds have passed through the Bluetooth SIG and have been granted wireless charging certification too.
So, while Google remains tight-lipped about the release date of the Pixel Buds, it cannot be too far off now. Google promises that the Pixel Buds will deliver "high-quality audio" from their 12 mm dynamic drivers and will last up to 24 hours from a single charge of the charging case. According to the product listing, Google will sell the Pixel Buds in Oh So Orange, Clearly White, Quite Mint and Almost Black.
