Google Pixel Buds 2 Gets FCC Certification, Launch Seems Imminent


We already know that Google is working on launching its second generation of truly wireless earphones. Not too long ago, we were able to spot the upcoming Google Pixel Buds 2 or the Google Pixel Buds 2020 (the moniker is not confirmed yet) on the Wireless Power Consortium website. Right after that, we spotted them on Taiwan’s NCC certification website. Both certifications contributed towards providing us with some crucial information surrounding Google’s Pixel Buds 2/Google Pixel Buds 2020. Today, we were able to spot them on the FCC certification website, which hints that the launch date of the second generation of Google Pixel Buds might not be too far away from now. Take a look at what we know about the Google Pixel Buds 2 so far.

Google Pixel Buds 2/2020: Everything We Know So Far

Though the FCC certification for Google Pixel Buds 2020 (link 1, link 2), it is a clear hint that we might soon witness their arrival in the market. Similar was the case with the NCC certification, which also revealed nothing too important about the buds, save for the model numbers of both earbuds: G1007 — left earbuds and G1008 — right earbuds. Below are the FCC documentation images for your reference:

The Wireless Power Consortium listing (which was taken down later on for reasons unknown), however, revealed that the 2020 Google Pixel Buds would come with 5W of wireless charging support. Though 5W is not a very fast solution to charge the devices, one should keep in mind that we are dealing with earphones here. As far as the relevance of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) listing is concerned, one must be made aware that all the devices that come with support for Qi wireless charging need to be certified by the Wireless Charging Consortium and the upcoming 2020 Google Pixel Buds do the same as they were spotted on the WPC website. While the NCC listing revealed the model number of the individual buds, the WPC listing revealed the model number for the case of the buds – G1013.

As far as the specifications and features of the upcoming Google Pixel Buds 2020 are concerned, it would be too early for us to speculate them as of now, considering the fact that they have just started out on their journey of receiving various certifications.

For now, little is known about the upcoming Google Pixel Buds 2/Google Pixel Buds 2020. As you might have noticed by now, we are struggling to fixate on one moniker for Google’s second-generation TWS, as the company has not put any official stamp on it for now. This, however, won’t stay the case forever and we can certainly expect to hear more about them in the coming days. The moment we do, we shall keep you posted on the same.
