The Google Pixel 7a will feature a full-screen display with a centered punch-hole notch and a chin. The overall bezels on the Pixel 7a look thick compared to other mid-range smartphones. The rear panel of the device will house the dual-rear camera setup inside a pill-shaped module which will be housed inside the visor camera island. The hands-on video showcases the Pixel 7a in a grey colour option.
Google Pixel 7a: Specifications and What We Know So Far
The biggest upgrades that the Google Pixel 7a will bring over its predecessor are going to be the inclusion of a 90Hz refresh rate display and wireless charging support. The hands-on video does show the display settings of the device (in Vietnamese) which confirms that the Pixel 7a will offer a 90Hz refresh rate display.
To those unaware, the Google Pixel 6a, priced at Rs 43,999 ($449 in US) didn’t offer a high refresh rate display. This was a major con for most people considering smartphones even in Rs 15,000 ($200) segment now offer a 90Hz/120Hz display. Pixel enthusiasts should be really happy to see Google adapting to a higher refresh rate display on its upcoming mid-range smartphone.
A leak earlier suggested that the Google Pixel 7a will offer a dual-rear camera setup which will consist of a Sony IMX787 sensor and a Sony IMX712 sensor. This could be a good upgrade over the Sony IMX363 which the company uses on its current mid-range handset – Pixel 6a. Google is also said to include support for wireless charging on the Pixel 7a but it will likely be capped at 5W.
