Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Google Pixel 6a!

Google is reportedly working to launch a new smartphone under its Pixel 6 series. The brand has already introduced Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, which never made it to Indian shores. However, the upcoming Pixel device may launch in India. Yes, we are talking about the Google Pixel 6a. The smartphone has been subjected to various leaks and rumours in the past, which sheds some light on its potential design, specifications, and features. The upcoming Pixel 6a is said to be powered by Google’s in-house Tensor chipset along with dual rear cameras, new design language, and more. So, if you are looking for all the information available on the Pixel 6a, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will talk in-depth about all the features and specifications that have been leaked so far about the upcoming Pixel 6a smartphone.

Google Pixel 6a Expected Launch Date

The upcoming Google Pixel 6a was earlier reported to launch in May during the Google I/O conference. However, if we go by the latest report, then the launch of the Pixel 6a may be delayed till July. Multiple reports indicate that Google is currently facing supply chain and chip shortage issues. That said, the phone was recently spotted in a US carrier inventory system, which suggests that it might launch soon. But for the exact launch date is concerned, one might have to wait for a bit to get more information about it.

Google Pixel 6a Series Expected Price in India

There is no information about the expected price of the Google Pixel 6a. However, considering the price of the previous Pixel A-series model, one could expect the upcoming Pixel 6A may be priced under $400, which roughly translates to Rs 30,771. Coming to Indian pricing, the Pixel 6A may be priced around Rs 40,000, though it is just mere speculation.

Google Pixel 6a Expected Launch in India

Google introduced the Pixel 4A smartphone in October 2020 and since then the brand has not launched any Pixel-series smartphones in India. The company also skipped the Pixel 5A phone for the Indian market in 2021. This makes us believe that the Pixel 6A may not get launched in India, especially, if it is coming with the new Tensor chipset. But that said, multiple reports pointed out that Google is planning to launch a new Pixel smartphone in India this year. This gives some hope that the brand may launch Pixel 6A in the country around the second half of 2022.

Google Pixel 6a Expected Specifications and Features

There are multiple reports that have leaked some key specifications and features of the upcoming Pixel 6a smartphone. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming Pixel device:

New Design Language

The upcoming Pixel 6a may come up with a new design language that will be closer to its current lineup of the Pixel 6 series. If we go by the leaked renders, the upcoming Pixel 6a may come with a glass back with a dual-tone finish. The front may sport a punch-hole display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Moreover, unlike Pixel A phones, the Pixel 6a may ditch the headphone jack. The phone may be available in at least three colour options: Black, White, and Green.

Google Tensor Chipset

A recent report by 9to5Google suggested that Google is planning to bring its custom-made Tensor chipset to the Pixel 6a. This is the same chipset that powers the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones and offers some interesting features like octa-core GPU with 20-core ARM Mali-G78 MP20 GPU, a Tenson processing unit, advanced image signal processor, dedicated security core, and more. We also spotted the Pixel 6a on Geekbench, which reveals that the phone will be powered by a Tensor chipset.

However, the phone may come with a 12MP Sony IMX363 primary sensor along with a 12.2MP ultra-wide-angle lens. For selfies and video calling, the handset may offer an 8MP shooter.
