It’s been over a month since Google officially lifted the veil on its new Pixel 6a, but its launch isn’t expected until July 21. However, leaker Evan Blass has already shared several official images of the device that let us see all the features of its design.

As we already knew, the Pixel 6a will inherit the iconic design of last year’s Pixel 6, including the horizontal bar-shaped photo module on the back of the smartphone. However, the Pixel 6a will use different photo sensors, since we will find a 12.2 MP main sensor as well as a 12 MP ultra wide-angle lens.

The Pixel 6a offers a solid technical sheet, but not on all points

When the Pixel 6a launched at Google I/O 2022 last May, Google had already lifted the veil on all the characteristics of the smartphone. We know, for example, that it will be powered by the same Tensor chip as the Pixel 6, which will make it one of the most powerful smartphones in its segment.

However, Google had to make concessions in other areas to compensate for the integration of this high-end processor. The Pixel 6a is equipped witha 6.1-inch OLED FHD+ screen, but its refresh rate is only 60 Hzwhich is less than most smartphones of 2022. The screen is also protected only by Gorilla Glass 3, and as seen in the official images, the lower and upper borders are very visible.

On the battery side, we will find a 4410 mAh battery. That should be more than enough to comfortably last more than a day given the small screen and its 60Hz frequency. The main advantage of the Pixel 6a should be its software tracking, since Google promises 5 years of updates. Anyway, we can’t wait to get our hands on this smartphone, which will be marketed at 459 euros in France.
