The Google Pixel 7a should arrive before the Google Pixel 8 comes out later this year. The latest Mid-Ranger-related leak has provided real-world photos of the handset as well as some spec details.
it all comes from
Devayan Roy (opens in new tab) Twitter (via GSMArena) (opens in new tab)), not the most tipster, but someone who has leaked accurate smartphone information in the past (so adjust your credibility dial accordingly).
The photo shows what the expected Google Pixel 7a looks like, with a cutout for the selfie camera on the top of the display and the familiar Pixel camera bar on the back. It looks like you are doing
In terms of these specs, Roy names a 6.1-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2400 pixels) 90 Hz OLED screen, so it’s on par with the Google Pixel 6a, except for the bump to 90 Hz. This should make scrolling and animations a bit smoother than before.
As expected, there seems to be a Tensor G2 processor to do it all, while the rear camera is said to be a matter of dual-lens 64MP + 12MP, and 5W wireless charging is also mentioned. It’s not terribly fast, but it’s a first for his Pixel line in the midrange.
Not available here is no mention of a release date, but last year’s Pixel 6a was announced at Google IO 2022. This year’s developer conference is set for his May 10th, so next up is the Pixel 7a.
Analysis: Another Important Pixel Phone
The Pixel hardware range seems to be gaining a bit of momentum, with reports suggesting both the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch are selling in record numbers.
The figures quoted don’t worry Apple and Samsung too much, but they do indicate that Google is finally gaining some foothold in the market. If you remember the Nexus One debuting in his 2010, it’s been a long time coming.
In this somewhat promising situation comes the Google Pixel 7a. Of course, it is important to maintain this momentum. We have always liked the ‘a’ series models, they offer a good balance of performance, features and price.
At the same time, there’s always the danger that it could impact sales of either the Pixel 7 (which shares the same processor) or the Pixel 8. We’ll be keeping a close eye on what exactly the Pixel 7a does and doesn’t do. Offered this year.
