Google is rumored to release a new pair of TWS earbuds like the Pixel Buds that may be called the Google Pixel Buds A. This pair of Buds is expected to have a lower price-point than the current Pixel Buds model and as per the latest report, Google may have accidentally confirmed the name of the more affordable Buds.

As spotted by Caschy’s Blog, Google Germany added a listing to the search results for its store and the “Pixel Buds A-Series” was listed as an option on Google’s storefront in the search results. While we still don’t know the exact naming structure for the Pixel Buds A, we now know that the “A” lines up with Google’s Pixel “A” smartphones, which are targeted at lower price points.

The Pixel Buds A will look identical to the Pixel Buds as previously leaked images have shown. The Pixel Buds A will feature a different coloring scheme, and will have only one LED indicator instead of the Pixel Buds dual LEDs. The interior of the Pixel Buds A’s case will also be the same color as the Buds themselves in contrast to the Pixel Bud’s purely black interior.

The Pixel Buds A were already certified by the FCC with model number GPQY2. Given the timing of these leaks, it’s probably that Google plans to make the new TWS Buds A official at Google’s upcoming I/O conference. The current Pixel Buds are priced at $180, and the new Buds A are expected to omit some features to lower the price down.
