As is now almost usual with Google products, the devices often appear on the Internet months before the planned release with various data and images. Accordingly, the next cheap mid-range Pixel phone, the Google Pixel 7a, has also made its way. The 7a will probably hit the market just before summer. The predecessor Google Pixel 6a also appeared in May last year, just in time for Google’s annual I/O conference.
The latest leak today brings the first live images of the alleged Google Pixel 7a along with some specs. The tipster cites a 6.1-inch OLED display with a 1080p resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. While both values are far from flagship levels, they would fit well with Google’s most affordable model. When it comes to the drive, on the other hand, there are no compromises with the Google Tensor G2 chipset and UFS 3.1 storage. The G2 also powers the regular Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro.
The camera setup on the back consists of a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 main camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. This would give the main camera a significant upgrade compared to the 12.2 megapixel sensor in the Google Pixel 6a. Interestingly, the Google Pixel 7a also supports wireless charging, but only with 5 watts. If the ultra-wide camera is capable of more than just snapshots, it would result in a powerful all-round cell phone together with the fast G2 processor. Now only the price has to be right.
