Google unveils Pixel 6a smartphone and teases Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch

Google unveiled the new Pixel 6a smartphone and Pixel Buds Pro headphones at its annual Google I/O, but also announced the upcoming Pixel 7 smartphone along with the Pixel Watch and Pixel Tablet.

The Pixel 6a is a more affordable version of the flagship Pixel 6 released last year and has a Google Tensor chip under the hood.

It’s like the iPhone SE in that it doesn’t have the same camera features and quality as the more expensive models but with the same performance, speed and processing power.

Google’s Pixel 6a will retail for $799 and will be available July 28, with pre-orders starting July 21.

The Pixel Buds Pro are premium active noise canceling headphones that have been built with a custom 6-core audio chip running Google’s own algorithms.

The headphones also have built-in sensors that monitor the pressure in your ear canal to ensure comfort for hours of listening.

There’s also a volume equalizer that balances the sound as you adjust the volume.

The Google Pixel Buds Pro will also support spatial audio so you can watch movies and TV shows on compatible Pixel phones and feel like you’re right in the middle of the action.

The Google Pixel Buds Pro have IPX4 water resistance and the charging case also has an IPX2 rating so it can handle sweat and light rain.

On the battery side, Pixel Buds Pro will run for up to 11 hours or up to 7 hours with active noise cancellation turned on.

Pixel Buds Pro will be available for pre-order on July 21 and will go on sale on July 28.

Google also unveiled three other new products: the Google Pixel 7 smartphone, the Pixel Watch and the Pixel Tablet.

The Pixel 7 smartphone will get a slight redesign and include the latest version of Google’s Tensor chip which will enable the latest technology and even faster performance.

Its new Android tablet, also powered by Google’s Tensor processor, will be the perfect companion to the Pixel 7 and allow users to stay productive and entertained on the go.

The Google Pixel Watch will be the first watch where Google has created both hardware and software.

It has a circular domed design and a tactile crown and it’s made of recycled stainless steel.

The watch can be accessorized with customizable straps that can easily be swapped out to suit your mood or style.

The Pixel 7, Pixel Tablet and Pixel Watch are expected to be available in Australia in October.
