Google introduced the mid-range Pixel 6a Android smartphone just a few months ago. The rumor cycle is ruthless, however, and the Google Pixel 7a leaks have already begun. If the information is correct (and there are several reasons to believe so), the Pixel 7a could be a significant upgrade over the Pixel 6a.
The leak comes from a popular tipster Kuba Wojciechowski, which claims that Google has already started working on the Pixel 7a. The leaker says the device is internally called “Lynx” and will support wireless charging, new camera sensors and a better display compared to its predecessor.
90Hz 1080p display
One of the main complaints about the Pixel 6a was that the smartphone had a 60Hz OLED display, while many smartphones in this price range, such as the Nothing Phone (1), have a at 120Hz. Google might look to fix this like Because says the company is buying a 90Hz 1080p OLED panel from Samsung for the Pixel 7a.
At a time when even social media apps are resource-intensive, a high refresh rate display ensures customers have a smooth experience. With a 90Hz Full HD display, the Pixel 7a would provide a major upgrade over the Pixel 6a and even make the recently announced Pixel 7 a tough sell next summer.
Improved camera sensors
One of our cons about the Pixel 6a is that it comes with the same camera sensors as the four-year-old Pixel 3. And while we were overall happy with the camera performance, thanks to the new Google Tensor chipset ISP. – it lacked the ‘wow’ factor and didn’t excite us.
Kuba Wojciechowski Now reports that Google is (thankfully) looking to upgrade to new camera sensors on the Pixel 7a. The company is reportedly using the Sony IMX787 sensor for the main camera and the IMX712 sensor for the ultra-wide lens. Although it doesn’t come with the GN1 sensor, which Google used in the Pixel 6 series, the IMX787 will certainly give the Pixel 7a a much-needed upgrade in terms of quality.
Wireless charging support
Last but not least, Because indicates that the Pixel 7a will support wireless charging. However, wireless charging speed may be limited to 5W only. Although 5W wireless charging may seem slow, it’s better to have it than not to have it at all. Additionally, by using the battery share feature, you will be able to charge your smartphone accessories, including headphones, which can come in handy in certain situations.
And on top of all that, the Pixel 7a is expected to feature the same Tensor G2 chipset as the recently announced Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. That means the Pixel 7a could also get the same software features, including Guided Frame, Clear Calling and Face Unlock, as its more expensive siblings. Moreover, the new chipset will not only help with AI-related features but also bring improved performance and better efficiency.
The Pixel 7a is coming next year
Google is expected to announce the Pixel 7a next year. The company would (most likely) unveil the smartphone at I/O 2023, just like it did with the Pixel 6a this year. If Google manages to keep the $449 price tag, the Pixel 7a could be the real deal. If it comes with all the features mentioned above, there’s no doubt that the Pixel 7a will offer even better value than its predecessors.
