Pro-Buds with noise cancellation
Google has upgraded its true wireless headphones, the Pixel Buds. The new generation goes by the name Pixel Buds Pro and now also offers active noise cancellation including transparency mode. The Pro-Buds should come from the end of July for 220 euros. In addition, the manufacturer has announced the first Pixel tablet with a Tensor processor, which will probably not appear before 2023.
Of course, the AI chip Tensor, designed by Goolge himself, is also included in the Pixel 6a, as well as a Titan M2 security chip as a coprocessor, as well as 6 gigabytes (GB) of RAM and 128 GB of non-expandable memory. The OLED display (Full HD) in 20:9 format measures 6.1 inches. In addition to 5G, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 are also on board in terms of wireless standards.
The dual camera comes with wide- and ultra-wide-angle optics (around 12 megapixels each). This means that the Pixel 6a does not have the same camera technology as the Pixel 6. With the Pixel 5, Google had equipped larger and smaller models equally in terms of camera.
Pixel-typical camera tape
The manufacturer specifies a capacity of 4410 milliampere hours for the battery, which, although not wireless, should be able to be charged quickly by cable. The Pixel 6a, which is visually striking due to its slightly transparent plastic back and its cameras embedded in a black band, is still delivered with Android 12.
Android 13, in which there is to be a wallet for means of payment, ID cards, cards and tickets, is already in the starting blocks as the second beta version. The update for the 6a will undoubtedly come. In addition, as with the big 6 brothers, Google promises security updates for five years.
