Android 13, Pixel 6A and what to expect

Tech Highlights:

  • Google I/O 2022 keynote is going to talk about a lot of things, but all eyes will be on the new Android 13 version. As you might be aware, the Android 13 Developer Preview and the Beta version have already rolled out, albeit for select devices. Now, the keynote will give Google the chance to shed more details on the new Android flavour, and talk about the features and improvements done to the operating system. The first set of devices to get Android 13 are likely to be the next Pixel flagship phones, and Samsung could also have its say. Next week, we’ll have a better idea about Android 13 and its features.

  • Google I/O 2022 is just one week away, and the keynote on May 11 is eagerly anticipated by people all over the world. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet, will preside over the session, walking us through the various Google products that will be available to developers and, later, consumers. Google I/O 2022 is most likely the platform where we will see the next Android version, as well as a few hardware products from the company that may include a new addition. Aside from that, the keynote should provide clarity on Google’s software direction for various form factors, including the foldable.

Google and Samsung showed us the new WearOS at the last Google I/O keynote and this year we expect the partnership to have solidified to form a cohesive wearable platform. The WearOS 3.2 version is expected to see a big jump in performance, and Google could use the software for its own smartwatch as well. But Google I/O 2022 is not just going to be about phones and Android. Google also has a major focus on Chrome OS which is used on Chromebooks and other devices by the developers. Chrome OS got support for Android apps, and we believe the integration is likely to get stronger from here on. Many also expect Chrome OS to be offered on high-end machines.

The Sennheiser CX Sport feature 7mm dynamic drivers and the company’s TrueResponse transducer to offer bass-heavy audio with “superior clarity without distortion”. The earbuds’ Adaptable Acoustic feature allows athletes to choose either open or closed ear adapters and adjust EQ settings for the perfect custom training sound.

Until a few days back, nobody expected Google to have new products, that too hardware products at the Google I/O 2022. But Pichai during his earnings call gave the strongest hint that Google could showcase not one, but two products at the keynote. And going by the rumours, it could be the Pixel 6a smartphone and the first-ever Pixel Watch smartwatch, which has been seen in the wild over the past few days.  Elon Musk Buys Twitter: Here Are 4 Big Changes You Can Expect Google I/O 2022 keynote is on May 11 and those in India can tune into the live stream later that night to get all the updates. And make no mistake News18 Tech will be on top of all the announcements.

The open ear adapters in combination with the Aware EQ settings help to reduce body-borne noise and allow some outside sounds to enter for better situational awareness. It essentially sounds like an awareness mode that many rival earbuds also offer. However, it appears to be getting a form of active noise cancellations with “closed ear adapter and Focus EQ settings”. The Sennheiser CX Sport also support standard SBC and AAC codes as well as Qualcomm’s aptX for a lossless audio experience.
