The Pixel Buds Pro 2 are not yet a confirmed pair of true wireless earbuds, but a recent leak about the battery capacity in the case suggests that they could be very soon. What’s more, it seems like the case will have a larger battery than the Pixel Buds Pro. Which in turn may hint at a larger battery in the earbuds themselves.

According to 91mobiles, the Pixel Buds Pro 2 case has shown up in a battery certification recently. Documentation found through two different organizations seems to signify that an official announcement may be imminent as well. Certification for the Pixel Buds Pro 2, or what’s thought to be the Pixel Buds Pro 2, has shown up at both UL Demko and Safety Korea. UL Demko operates out of Denmark and Safety Korea operates out of South Korea.

There’s not a lot known about the upcoming pair of true wireless earbuds. And the leak doesn’t give too much detail other than a couple of pieces of information. Specifically the capacity of the case battery and the model number. The documentation states that these earbuds have the model number listed as GH8TQ. For comparison, the original Pixel Buds Pro have a model number of either  GA34L, GQGM1, or GPX4H. You could look at the loosely similar configuration of the model numbers as a significant hint that this is Google’s upcoming pair. Seeing as they start with the letter G and the number is five characters long.

With this certification popping up, it’s possible Google might be looking to reveal these at Google I/O on May 14.

The Pixel Buds Pro 2 case will have a slightly larger battery

It’s important to note that this certification documentation doesn’t mean this is what consumers end up getting. But it does give a hint at what Google seems to be working with. If the information is accurate then the Pixel Buds Pro 2 may come with a case that has a 650mAh battery. The original model comes with a 620mAh battery capacity case. So Google looks to be increasing the battery inside the case this time around. Again, while not confirmed, this could point to the earbuds having a larger battery capacity as well.

The original model had decent battery life of up to 11 hours, or up to 31 with the case. Even if the upcoming model doesn’t have longer listening time on a single charge, the case would still potentially provide more overall usage time. And that would still be a beneficial thing.
