Google first revealed an updated line of Pixel Buds in October of last year, but there's still no firm release date beyond "spring." A product listing at B&H appeared two months ago, saying the buds were "coming soon," but that was later removed. Now another page about the Pixel Buds 2 has been made available, and even though it has already been taken down, nothing on the internet is ever truly deleted.
The Pixel 3a and 3a XL already got the nod from David at their original prices for bringing Google's famed camera chops to a much more affordable package. For this Black Friday, the deal is getting even sweeter with many popular retail stores discounting the unlocked Google mid-rangers by $100, pulling their respective prices down to $299 and $379. You can save further with some retailers if you’re willing to start a new line with some specific carriers.
If you're willing to spend home theater-level pricing, but don't want to deal with a standalone speaker/receiver setup, super-expensive soundbars like Sony's 7.1.2-channel unit might be your figurative and literal jam. But if the original $1,500 asking price was just a bit too rich for your blood, the price has been dropped basically everywhere to $1,200.
Samsung's Note9 may be the new hotness, but the S9 and S9+ are basically smaller versions of the same thing, and they're a lot cheaper than the $1,000 monolith. So if you had your eye on one, waiting for the price to fall in this post-Note9 world, the time is now. Galaxy S9 and S9+ prices were recently slashed by $100 pretty much everywhere. That means you can pick up a new, unlocked, US-warrantied Galaxy S9 for as low as $620.
Is your old computer is starting to feel slow and sluggish? Have you been looking at all those Chromebooks and wanting to get one for yourself? Or maybe you have eyed the Pixelbook ever since it launched, but the $999 price was a little tough to stomach? Well, this deal is sure going to make you stop and think twice: it's that good. Google is discounting the Pixelbook to $749 at multiple retailers — that's $250 off the regular price and the lowest we've ever seen it dip, by far. Until now, the best discount we had spotted was $100 off with a free Google Home.
Like it or hate it, more and more phones are dropping the headphone jack, which means Bluetooth headphones are changing from an optional benefit to a definite requirement as time goes on. For those looking to pick up a pair, Bose's SoundSport Free were one of Android Police's favorite "truly" wireless earbuds late last year, and now you can grab your own for just $199, a savings of $50.
There is no shortage of Android Auto-capable head units on the market, but as of right now, there is only one of the single-DIN variety: the Pioneer AVH-3300NEX. Considering that a lot of people are still driving around in cars with single-DIN slots, that's pretty incredible. Now you can buy an AVH-3300NEX for just $448, $152 off the MSRP, from Amazon and Abt.
Samsung flagships aren't cheap, so some of you might have been waiting for Black Friday to score a deal on one of them. We're seeing discounts of $150 and up on the Galaxy Note8, S8+, and S8, as well as a healthy $67 discount on the Gear 360 (2017 Edition) at multiple retailers.
These days, we're seeing increasingly advanced smart TVs with 4K resolutions, HDR tech, and more. In anticipation of the Black Friday weekend, Sony has slashed prices on two of its 4K HDR smart TV lines, the XBR X900E and X930E. No matter what size or features you need, there's an option for you here.
