Pixel 7a Specs and Hands-On Photos Appear Once Again
Google's affordable Pixel 7a has been a bit of a puzzle. The phone has extensively leaked in the past, but we so far have no idea about when it is going to launch. The closest speculation that one can make is that the phone will come out during Google I/O 2023, as that is the best place to show off a new and affordable Pixel phone.
The latest Pixel 7a leak shows that Google is giving a top-notch camera and processing power for the upcoming affordable phone
And today, we have some information on the upcoming Pixel 7a. However, the images are from an older leak, so nothing new exists. However, the tipster has also shared alleged specs of the upcoming mid-ranger, and judging by those, we can assume that the phone will be pretty decent.
You can check out the specs below.
• 6.1" FHD+ 90Hz OLED
• Tensor G2 , LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.1
• 64MP Sony IMX787 + 12MP UW
• 5W wireless charging
• Android 13 pic.twitter.com/qGVzFQoKiZ

Judging by the leaked specs, the Pixel 7a looks like a promising phone, to be honest. The phone has a Tensor G2 chipset with LPDDR5 RAM and slightly older but still very promising UFS 3.1 storage. The most interesting bit here is that Google has not decided to go for an older chipset or an outsourced chipset, for that matter. The one thing that we are not sure about is whether Google will be underclocking the chipset or not.
Pixel phones have always been in demand for their cameras and the operating system they run, and Pixel 7a does not look different. The leak suggests it will sport a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 as the primary camera and an unspecified 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera. Google seems to have ditched the telephoto camera to cut costs. Sadly, no information is available on the front camera. As for the display, the Pixel 7a will bring a slightly smaller 6.1-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and the leak claims that this will be an OLED panel, which is always a good thing.
The phone will offer disappointingly slow 5W wireless charging and will be running Android 13 out of the box. The latter makes sense because even though Google will officially unveil Android 14 during the Google I/O 2023, the official, stable release will still happen sometime in August.
The 'a' series phones have always been affordable, and Pixel 7a looks to be no exception. I am happy that Google has decided to go with a decent camera and the same Tensor G2 that powers the older siblings. It all comes down to the price now; the Pixel 7 was launched at $599, whereas the Pixel 6a launched at $449. These are the upper and lower limits as far as the price is concerned. We will keep you posted as we hear more about the upcoming phone.Continue Reading
