Made by Google took to social media today to to remind potential buyers opening pre-orders for the Pixel 6a and Pixel Buds Pro in a month. Meanwhile, another hands-on video of Google’s upcoming mid-range phone has made its way to YouTube.
The two devices announced at I/O 2022 will go on pre-order on Thursday, July 21. Google previously said that the Pixel 6a would hit store shelves on July 28, but there is no such date for Pixel Buds Pro. In all likelihood, both will probably ship just before the official street date.
Google is very much tying the devices together as a joint purchase, though the earbuds will likely be what existing Pixel owners are buying. In terms of marketing copyGoogle emphasizes active noise cancellation (ANC), volume EQ, device switching, and the hotword.
Pixel 6a, powered by Google Tensor, is super fast and secure with a great battery and camera. Pair it with the new Pixel Buds Pro to enjoy your favorite music in an immersive experience.
Meanwhile, there is another Pixel 6a hands-on video out of Malaysia that comes as there is a reseller in the country. Of particular interest in this one is how we can see what software the 6a takes out of the box: Android 12L April Security Patch. There will likely be a day one update to QPR3 with Android 13 presumably right after that.
Other highlights of this video:
- 3:57 – perfunctory test with fingerprint sensor under the screen
