Expected Google Pixel 6a specifications according to the leaks and everything related to the upcoming phone

Google is still a long way from revealing the awaited phone, which is Google Pixel 6a, however, some rumors are definitely starting to surface which raises the bar since we already fell in love with the previous 5a phone that was revealed in the middle of this year.

In fact, the Pixel 5a lacked a lot and needed a lot of additions and upgrades, so its successor could come with those welcome improvements. Some only think of simple wishes, like a powerful Tensor wizard. Others, wanting improvements in the photographic experience such as Auto-Focus in the ultra-wide lens, are certainly legitimate ambitions.

At the moment, there are not many surprising rumors as the Pixel 6a is still far from being launched at the moment. So that's all we know about the next Pixel phone.

Google Pixel 6a Price

Google Pixel 5a officially arrived on August 26, 2021 in the US and Japan. Google hasn't explained why the phone is exclusive to only those two countries, but we suspect that the global crisis of chip shortages is to blame.

August appears to be Google's new schedule for the A series. The Pixel 3a was unveiled on May 7 at the Google I/O conference in 2009, but the Pixel 4a appeared on August 20, 2020. Many blamed the difficult pandemic we live in for the delay in the 4a launch. All fingers seem to be that August 2022 will be the Google Pixel 6a launch date.

For the price, it will be the highlight of the phone. The smaller Pixel 3a (there were two sizes) came in at $399, but the Pixel 4a came in at $349. After that, the price of the Pixel 5a went up to $449 which made perfect sense, especially since a second camera and 5G support were added. If we're to guess, the Pixel 6a will likely be priced around $450, depending on which processor Google will be using.

Google Pixel 6a Specs

The leaked images of the Pixel 6a look a lot like the Pixel 6, with the rear camera module still protruding from the back of the phone. This is significant, as it indicates that the Pixel 6a will inherit the same excellent 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor which is a huge upgrade from the 12.2MP camera that has been consumed in the past three generations of Pixel a phones.

All Google Pixel a phones have always offered great photography even though they come at a limited price. And if the Pixel 6a will actually have the same sensor as in Google Pixel 6, we're talking here on an excellent phone.

Unfortunately, it's not all good news, and it looks like the Pixel 6a may be Google's latest phone to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack - a consumer-friendly feature that's been maintained in 'a' models until now.

Notably, it will not have a fingerprint sensor installed on the back of the phone, which indicates that Google can use the same sensor under the screen that we saw in Pixel 6 Pro.

The Pixel 6a will have a 6.2-inch screen - slightly smaller than the Pixel 6's 6.4-inch and 6.71-inch screen on the Pixel 6 Pro, but with the same model that's OLED. There is no word on the refresh rate, though, all previous Pixel a phones have been launched with 60Hz, but we might see a 90Hz refresh rate, why not?

It is also not clear at the moment what the internal components of the phone are. Although previous Pixel a phones included an average Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, it is possible that Google will consider using a Tensor processor in line with its recent flagship series of phones.

Since the debut Tensor chip made the company dispense with Qualcomm chipsets, it would be surprising if Google did not seize this opportunity and launch more chips and compete in that market aggressively.
