Google Pixel 6a is reportedly in the works. Before the tech giant’s official announcement, versions of the smartphone were leaked online, offering a look at the design and some specs of Google’s phone. The leaked renders show an identical design to the standard Google Pixel 6 with a perforated design and a 6.2-inch screen. The phone also has dual rear cameras. The Google Pixel 6a is said to succeed the Google Pixel 5a 5G and is likely to debut as a mid-range device in India.
Google Pixel 6a renders were shared by well-known insider Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks), in collaboration with 91Mobiles. The leaked renders show the phone in a two-tone color finish with a glass back and a perforated screen in the center. Google Pixel 6a renders show cutouts on all sides. The volume rocker and the power button have been placed in the right column of the phone, while the SIM tray is seen in the left column. Additionally, a microphone, speaker grille, and USB Type-C port are also seen at the bottom.
Dual rear cameras and an LED flash are seen inside a camera module identical to the one on the vanilla Pixel 6. It is also seen with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Pixel 6a is shown without a 3.5mm headphone jack. If the leaked images are to be believed, the Google Pixel 6a will be the first ‘a’ Pixel phone without a headphone jack.
Additionally, Google’s upcoming phone is tilted to measure around 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm (10.4mm including rear camera bump).
The specifications of the Google Pixel 6a are likely an update from those of the Pixel 5a 5G that was released in August this year. The Pixel 6a is expected to get a Snapdragon 778G SoC instead of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC seen in the predecessor. It is also expected to run on Android 12.
