Google is currently working hard on its next mid-range phone, the Google Pixel 7a. After the first technical data, a few renderings had already appeared last month. Two new leaks now bring videos of the Pixel 7a. The first device was quickly remotely locked by Google, but some additional information about the Fastboot interface has come to light. That includes up to 8GB of Samsung LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of Micron storage.
The first video quickly made the rounds on Twitter and just as quickly the author deleted the short clip. The caption read: “Remember Google Pixel 7a? The guy messaged me a few minutes ago that the phone has been remotely locked by Google. But at least we know one other detail: 8GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB”. According to previous videos and images, the Google Pixel 7a is very similar to the Pixel 7 series. The front of the device doesn’t differ much from the Pixel 6a, the back is similar to the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The device in the second video has a 90 Hz display, which you can see by the switch in the settings. There is also dual SIM support, but you won’t find out much more. The video appears to be from Vietnam – the Pixel 7a pictured has its language set to Vietnamese.
Google Pixel 7a design
The Google Pixel 7a has narrow bezels on the front, with the lower one being slightly wider. The display has a central punch hole. The power button and volume rocker are on the right side of the Google smartphone, and the SIM card slot is on the left. On the back there is a central Google logo as well as two main cameras and an LED flash in the well-known, wide camera module. Dark gray and white are available as color options.
Official-looking renders of the Pixel 7a started appearing on the internet last November. They also show a device that is very reminiscent of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Here, too, you could clearly see the bezels around the display, which mark the 7a as the cheapest model in the series.
According to a recently leaked Google new product roadmap, the Pixel 7a should be officially unveiled “around April or May.” This makes the annual Google I/O developer conference the most likely stage, which takes place in May.
