A known tipster has stated that the Google Pixel 6a might be announced during the Google I/O 2022, however, will be made available for sale only in July.

A New Nest Hub
Google already has its Nest Hub (2nd Gen) and Nest Hub Max which are actually pretty good display devices. However, recent rumours suggest that Google is coming up with something else that is sure to catch your attention.
