Google Pixel 6a 5G: Specifications & Details
After all, Pixel 6a specs and details are here after a massive queue of leaks and assumptions for a year. There are fewer similarities between past leaks and the actual smartphone.
Google Pixel 6a is the last model for the Pixel 6; after this, the company will start the Pixel 7 series, but on the first day of Google I/O 2022, Google’s host Soniya Jobanputra stated that “the Pixel 6 series is the most selling smartphone series from Google. Its selling stats are equal to the combined stats of the Pixel 4 & 5 series”.
The Google Pixel 6a design is pretty similar to the Pixel 6. It contains the same iconic bar for the back cameras & doesn’t seem to be any significant difference, but this handset has only one colored body, not like the dual colors we saw earlier.
It has an in-display fingerprint sensor and a centered punch hole for the camera in front, and the bezels are slightly curved and bold from the screen. The Pixel 6a will be available in Chalk, Charcoal, and Sage color options.
The device’s back camera bar contains two cameras, a new dual-pixel 12.2MP primary lens with f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization, and the other is an ultra-wide 12MP f/2.2 aperture same as the two other Pixel 6 phones.
The front camera contains an 8MP lens with an aperture of f/2.0.
As Pixel 6 is known for its camera features, Pixel 6a has camera features such as Night Sight, which makes night captures brighter in a perfect manner, Real Tone to represent all skin tones, and enhanced Magic Eraser in Google Photos,
Besides, Google has announced the ability of its Magic Eraser that it can also change the color of an object in the image.
The Pixel 6a has a 6.1-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, which seems smaller but similar to the Pixel 6, with a refresh rate of 60hz and HDR support. Also, Its display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The biggest surprise from the company is Pixel 6a is powered by Google Tensor SoC, which also runs the Pixel 6 Pro, along it having the Titan M2 security chip in tandem with the 6GB LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The phone comes with 5G connectivity and Android 12 out of the box with five years of security updates.
Battery & Charging
The handset owns a 4410mAh battery which seems slightly capable but Google claims over 24 hours of regular use and up to 72 hours with the new Extreme Battery Saver mode. The Pixel 6A supports 18W USB-PD fast charging and has no wireless charging.
Price & Availablity
Google Pixel 6a is priced at $449, which is fair for device capabilities; its price is the same as the Pixel 5a launched price but far better than 5a.
The pre-orders will start on July 21 and will be in stores July 28. The availability in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
