As the Google I/O launch approaches, more and more leaks are emerging about the highly-anticipated mid-range smartphone, Pixel 7a. Just earlier today, new leaks about the Pixel 7a have surfaced. A bunch of promotional materials was leaked earlier, and now a proposed “final” spec sheet for the Pixel 7a has revealed key details about the upcoming device.
According to recent leaks by tipster Yogesh Brar and published by 91Mobiles, a proposed “final” spec sheet for the upcoming mid-ranger Google Pixel 7a reveals some key details about the device. This leak confirms several pre-release rumors and findings, including the usage of the second-generation Tensor G2 processor, which is expected to provide significant performance improvements over its predecessor.
Another notable improvement over the previous A-series handsets is the RAM, which is set to be bumped up to 8GB. This should allow for smoother multitasking and overall faster performance. However, UFS 3.1 storage is set to be capped at 128GB, which may disappoint users who require more storage.
The specs sheet confirms the usage of a 6.1-inch screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. We can expect this screen to have the same dimensions as the Pixel 6a. However, the increased refresh rate will match the OLED panel found on the Pixel 7, providing a smoother and more responsive user experience.
Interestingly, the spec sheet also suggests that the Pixel 7a will have an increased battery capacity of 4,400mAh, which is slightly larger than the 4,355mAh internal cell used on the Pixel 7. This increase in battery size could provide longer battery life for the device up to 72 hours, making it a more appealing option for users who require a phone that can keep up with their daily activities without running out of juice too quickly.
In addition to the aforementioned Pixel 7a specs, the device is also said to support wired charging with an upgraded power delivery from 18W to 20W. Wireless charging will also be supported, but there is no information about the charging speeds using this method.
The camera system is another area of improvement for the Pixel 7a. The main shooter is rated at 64 megapixels, a significant upgrade from the 12.2-megapixel sensor found on previous A-series devices. Additionally, there will be a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera to complete the dual rear system. For selfies, a 10.8-megapixel front-facing camera will be used, which will support software-based face unlocking.
Here’s a recap of the expected specs for the Pixel 7a:
- Display: 6.1-inch OLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate
- Processor: Second-generation Tensor G2 processor
- RAM: 8GB
- Storage: 128GB UFS 3.1 storage
- Battery: 4,400mAh battery with up to 72 hours backup
- Charging: 20W wired charging, wireless charging support (unknown speed)
- Rear cameras: 64-megapixel main camera, 13-megapixel ultrawide camera
- Front camera: 10.8-megapixel selfie shooter with Face Unlock
- Other features: Headphone jack, dual stereo speakers, Titan M2 security chip
These rumored specifications make the Pixel 7a an exciting option for consumers looking for a mid-range device with impressive camera capabilities and a smooth visual experience. While Google has not officially confirmed the release date of the Pixel 7a, it is widely expected to be launched during the upcoming Google I/O event on May 10. With these latest leaks, we now have a better idea of what to expect from this upcoming mid-range smartphone.
It is also rumored that the Pixel 7a will be priced at $499.99, which is higher than its predecessor. According to the tipster, the Pixel 7a may be priced at around ₹47,000 to ₹48,000 in India. This price hike could be due to the various upgrades and improvements made to the device, such as the increased RAM, larger battery, and improved camera system. However, some users and Pixel fans might feel that this price increase could be still reasonable compared to other mid-range smartphones on the market.
