Based on Google’s past releases, we wouldn’t be surprised if the company could be working on a lower-end version of its Pixel 6 handset. Now thanks to renders by @OnLeaks and shared with 91mobiles has revealed what the upcoming handset could look like.
From what we can tell, the design language of the Pixel 6a doesn’t look too different from the Pixel 6 whether it’s from the front or the back. We suppose to be fair, the front of phones don’t look too different from brand to brand, so we shouldn’t really expect too much. However, the back of the phone is where the phone’s design is more apparent where it looks like it will use a similar camera design as its higher-end siblings.
Speaking of cameras, according to 91mobiles, the phone could actually feature the same main 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor as the Pixel 6, which is a good thing, but we’re not sure about the rest of the modules.
As for the size of the phone, it will be smaller than the Pixel 6. Instead of a 6.4-inch display, it will use a slightly smaller 6.2-inch screen and interestingly enough, it seems that Google will give it an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is a pleasant surprise (if the rumors are true). Not much is known about the phone under the hood, but 91mobiles speculates that it will probably use the Tensor chipset, but it could be a lower-end model to help keep the price down.
There is currently no word on when the Pixel 6a will launch, but presumably it will be in 2022, so check back with us then for more updates.
