Google seems likely to start selling its second-generation Pixel Buds in the days ahead as the latest wireless earbuds surface on the US FCC website. The new development comes just weeks after Google Pixel Buds 2 spotted on an online store in the US with a price of $179 (roughly Rs 13,400).
The company unveiled the Google Pixel Buds 2 alongside the Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 4 XL phones at its Made By Google event back in October last year. The new earbuds are designed as the successor to the original Google Pixel Buds launched in 2017.
The US FCC site has two listings with model numbers G1007 and G1008 that appear to be associated with the Google Pixel Buds 2.
According to the SAR test report available on the FCC website, Google submitted new earbuds to FCC for certification, just a few days before the official launch of Google Pixel Buds 2 on 15 October. The test report also points out that it is linked to wireless earphones, although there is no clear mention of the device name.
Another interesting finding on the FCC site is the location of the label. Revealing the label location information says, the devices are too small to accommodate the FCC ID and too small for the 15.19 statement. Therefore, Google would include the respective information on the packaging and user manual of the new Pixel Buds 2.
However, the company did announce that the earbuds will go on sale this year, the exact arrival schedule is yet to be revealed.
Last month, the Google Pixel Buds 2 briefly listed for sale on the online store B&H Photo in a ‘Clearly White’ color option at $179. The Google Pixel Buds surfaced on the Bluetooth SIG site with the same G1007 and G1008 model numbers. That listing also suggested that the earbuds come with a Bluetooth 5.0 support. Users can stay connected with the official website for the latest technology updates and news around the world.
