Let’s take a look at the Google Pixel 6a specifications and features leaked ahead of the launch.


Google launched the Pixel 6 series earlier this year. The new flagship Pixels are not launching in India, leaving fans and enthusiasts disappointed. However, the search engine giant has typically launched its A-series of Pixel phones and, therefore, it might launch the Pixel 6a sometime next year. While we wait for the official confirmation around the launch, some key details of the Pixel 6a have leaked. The latest leak reveals the camera specifications and other key specs of the budget Pixel smartphone. This is followed by another report, which previously leaked the design of the upcoming Google smartphone. Let’s take a look at the Google Pixel 6a specifications and features leaked ahead of the launch.

Google Pixel 6a specifications 

Google Pixel 6a launch date remains unknown. The smartphone is expected to launch sometime in 2022 as a trimmed-down version of the Pixel 6. Ahead of the rumoured launch, a 9to5Google report has leaked the Pixel 6a camera specs. It claims that the upcoming Google Pixel will feature a 12.2MP primary camera sensor. Google is likely to use Sony’s IMX363 sensor for its A-series smartphone. It will be accompanied by a 12MP Sony IMX396 ultrawide camera. The phone will also feature an 8MP Sony IMX355 front camera.

Under the hood, Google’s A-series phone will draw power from the company’s custom-developed Tensor chip, which is also found on the flagship smartphones.It is unknown if the budget Pixel will feature the exact same SoC or will Google tune down the performance a bit.

Earlier this week, a 91Mobiles report leaked the Pixel 6a design renders. It revealed that the phone will have a similar design language of the premium Pixels. This means that the phone will have a hole-punch flat display. It is said to sport a slightly smaller 6.2-inch Full HD+ display. On the back, the camera module design is similar to the Pixel 6 series, with a thick bar housing the dual-cameras and an LED flash. The rear panel will be made of glass and sport a dual-tone finish.
