A Google Pixel 6a is expected sometime next year and retains the aesthetics of the Pixel 6.
While we are barely recovering from our emotions with the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, the Pixel 6 has already leaked in renderings through a partnership between the publication 91mobiles and the OnLeaks leaker, which are customary for this.
A tensor chip or not?
As you can see in the 360 ° video integrated at the end of the article, the Pixel 6a would take the same design as its predecessor, and in particular, a two-tone glass back panel separated by a black stripe, which houses the Flash LED and the two photosensors.
Upfront, the 6.2-inch flat OLED screen hides a fingerprint reader, and the front camera is housed in a central punch. The dimensions of the device would be 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm.
A big unknown remains the SoC that will equip this Pixel 6a, while one of the big attractions of the Pixel 6 was its in-house Tensor chip. It is not impossible that it will return to this model, but let’s not forget that this is a smartphone aimed at the mid-range and that Google has to make concessions somewhere. One possibility is also to see a lightweight Tensor chip.
But if we know about equipment in the A-series, there can be a lot of trade on the phone. For example, Google Tensor is unlikely to be on the plane, which probably means it will lack some of the essential features of the Pixel 6 series. This could result in lower prices in other areas so prices to be kept lower.
We do not know if Google intends to launch this phone. But since it is now gone, it has not gone far, perhaps for several months. Keep your eyes open as we learn more about the Google Pixel 6a at the end of 2021!
