Google just unveiled the pixel 6A at Google I/O on Wednesday. It’s missing one that the company has celebrated on its A-series line for years: a 3.5mm headphone jack.
As many smartphone manufacturers have moved on from the headphone jack. Its presence on the A-series line has become more and more of a distinguishing feature.
The first A-series pixel, the pixel 3A, would bring it back, but not until 2019. Once again, Google has parodied Apple only to become a parody itself the following year.
