Rumors surrounding Google Pixel 7a have already begun swirling, providing plenty of detail. According to reports, it will feature the same 6.1-inch display from Pixel 6a with up to 90Hz refresh rate and an improved fingerprint sensor. Furthermore, Carbon and Arctic Blue colors will likely be offered. Lets see what can be the expected expectation.
According to reports, it will come equipped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, representing a significant upgrade over its predecessor model and making it a contender for best Android phone overall. There’s also the possibility that it will be waterproof, which neither the Pixel 6a nor 7 Pro had. If this feature appears, it will represent another big step forward for Google.
Regarding cameras, reports indicate that the Pixel 7a will feature dual cameras on both its front and back panels – not quite up to par with Google’s triple camera setup found on its flagship model, yet still capable of taking high-quality pictures thanks to Google’s camera algorithms. Rear cameras will likely feature 64MP Sony IMX787 sensors while front-facing lenses could feature 12MP lenses; both will likely come equipped with front laser autofocus systems for added precision.
As well as its camera, reports indicate that the Pixel 7a will feature an upgraded processor – likely featuring the Tensor G2 CPU found in other Pixel devices such as Pixel 7 and 7 Pro; you should expect AI-driven features from this device.
It will feature a similar notch on its screen as found on Pixel 6a and should offer up to 90Hz refresh rates. Furthermore, this device should have an IP67 rating allowing up to 30 minutes of underwater use. Finally, reports claim that the Pixel 7a will support wireless charging (albeit limited to 5W), marking an advancement over its predecessor, which required USB-C for top-ups.
Design-wise, the Pixel 7a should resemble its predecessor – the Pixel 6a – with multiple color options and possibly even a ceramic body. Google’s Pixel 6a and its rumored sibling are distinct due to their design. While beautiful phones with sleek aesthetics may draw your attention first, their smart features distinguish the Pixel series as innovative and user-centric. Their focus on AI offers helpful tools and features.
We were very intrigued as long as Google phones were being manufactured with flagship-level specs and at an entry-level price point. If you’re looking for a new phone, consider checking out their Pixel series; prices are competitive, and this device provides unique features not found elsewhere.
The Pixel 7a will be released by Google on May 20, 2023, in various colors and priced similarly to its predecessor – the cheapest Pixel smartphone.
