We were hoping Google IO might give us our first look at the Google Pixel 6a – it turns out we didn’t have to wait that long, although it was only a few minutes.
Prolific leaker EVLeaks took to Twitter to share images and specs of the phone. You can see the renders below.
They basically show what we expected: an Android 12 phone with the same bar-shaped camera bump as the Pixel 6, but with smaller lenses (presumably one wide and one ultra-wide, as well as lower resolution sensors). Otherwise, it looks just like its big brother.
In a response, EVLeaks also shared some specs:
Highlights here are the 6.1-inch screen, although its 60Hz refresh rate might not impress, and its Google Tensor chip like its big brother.
The specs list also suggests that some of the best camera features from the Google Pixel 6 family will be retained, such as Magic Eraser and Face Unblur. Additionally, it says there will be a minimum of 5 years of security updates, although we can’t see it listing the actual number of Android updates.
This news suggests that the Google Pixel 6a will launch very soon – and with the IO 2022 main conference just minutes away, we hope to hear more soon.
