In today’s Google I/O event, Google introduces the new Pixel 6a in the Pixel A lineup. The device will go on sale in the month of July.
As for the specifications, The Pixel 6a will come with a 6.1-inch display, most probably an OLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate (leaked info). Alongside, you get to see the Tensor SoC on the device, along with the Titan M2 chip for enhanced security of the device. This device also comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner. However, Google has somewhat cheaped out on the display protection with Gorilla Glass 3.
Out of the box, Pixel 6a will come with 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage, along with Android 13. A 4306mAh battery is there for you to run through the whole day, just in case you use your device on a very mild basis. For the camera, Google is going with a 12.2MP main sensor and a 12.2MP ultra-wide sensor. These are the Sony IMX363 and IMX 368 respectively. At the front, Google is using an 8MP IMX355 selfie camera.
Since it’s a Pixel device, you will get all the Pixel exclusive features, along with features like Magic Eraser, RealTone, etc out of the box.
In terms of software updates, Google is committing 3 years of OS updates and 5 years of security updates on Pixel 6a.
The Pixel 6a will be available for purchase via Google online store, starting July 21, and offline store, starting July 28, in Silver, Black, and Mint colors.
