Google is known for its products leaking well in advance of their release, and the upcoming mid-range Pixel phone, the Google Pixel 7a, is no exception. While the Pixel 6a was announced in May last year, it’s expected that the 7a will hit the market just before summer. Despite its release date still being a few months away, we’ve already learned a lot about the device.
A new leak has surfaced with live photos purportedly providing a glimpse of the Pixel 7 phone’s alleged design and some of its specifications. Leaked live images and previously leaked renders of the Pixel 7a reveal that the device shares a similar design with the smaller Pixel 7, including the signature metal bar on the back of the device. This metal bar has become a hallmark of the Pixel line and is used to house the rear-facing camera module, LED flash, and other sensors.
As per a reliable tipster, the Google Pixel 7a will come equipped with a 6.1-inch OLED display boasting a 90Hz refresh rate. It will be driven by Google’s Tensor G2 SoC, which is expected to deliver lightning-fast performance and efficient power consumption.
It is also said to be equipped with LPDDR5 RAM, which should enable the device to handle multiple tasks seamlessly without any lag, and supported by UFS 3.1 storage for fast data access, thus elevating the phone’s mid-range status.
Pixel 7a’s rear camera setup is shaping up to be a significant upgrade over its predecessor. On the back, it will reportedly include a 64MP Sony IMX787 primary camera paired with a 12MP ultrawide camera, indicating a significant enhancement over the Pixel 6a‘s 12.2MP camera.
