New renders give us our first look at Google’s new Pixel 6 series of smartphones’ budget iteration. Though not much is known about the Pixel 6a at this time, the renders show what to expect from the phone when it is released.
Since their global debut last month, Pixel 6 phones have been lauded by Android smartphone fans all over the world. Unfortunately, Google has stated that it has no plans to bring the Pixel phones to India anytime soon. That may not be the case with the Pixel 6a, the series’ entry-level model. Many people are eagerly awaiting its release, and new leaks appear to provide much-needed clarity on how the Google smartphone might look.
The Pixel 6a is expected to have the same design as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. This means that, much to the delight of fans, the Pixel 6a will have the same camera band that spans the back of the device and houses the camera lenses. On the Pixel 6a, a glass back and a dual-tone finish will complement the rear design.
The hints have been spread via new renders circulated by 91mobiles and OnLeaks. According to the renders, the Pixel 6a will have a centered punch-hole cutout on the top of the display for the selfie camera, similar to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. According to 91mobiles, this display will be 6.2-inch diagonally and will have an OLED resolution as well as an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The renders also show a power button on the Pixel 6a’s right edge, just above the volume rockers. A USB Type-C port is located at the bottom, in the middle of two grilles, one for the speaker and one for the microphone. On the left edge of the phone, there is a SIM card slot.
Renders of its back show a camera module with two lenses and a single LED flash spread out. The primary lens will most likely be the same as on the Pixel 6 – a 50-megapixel wide-angle sensor. If this is the case, the secondary sensor could be a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens.
To speculate on the Pixel 6a’s other specifications, we expect it to have a Snapdragon 778G or Tensor Lite chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The device will most likely come pre-installed with Android 12 and a 4500mAh battery. According to 91mobiles, the phone will be 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm in size (or 10.4mm including rear camera bump).
