The Pixel 6a, the existence of which has already been confirmed by Google, has just had its specifications leak through Geekbench. This leak corroborates past speculation that a Tensor chip will be found inside the more affordable new Pixel device.
Spotted on a Geekbench listing by MySmartPrice, the Pixel 6a is being said to be powered by the Tensor GS101 chip, which is the same one used by the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro handsets. As the listing points out, it comes with two high-performance Arm Cortex-X1 cores clocked at 2.80GHz, two performance Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.25GHz, and four Cortex-A55 efficiency cores running at 1.8GHz.
The listing mentions that the Pixel 6a has a single-core score of 1,050 points and a multi-core score of 2,883 points. There’s a mention of 6GB of RAM, whereas Android 12 has been shown as the OS of this Google phone. We think that the launch model of the device may sport the newer Android 13 flavor or come with a day-one upgrade at least.
Google recently sent a gift to Pixel Superfans in which the Pixel 6a was clearly mentioned. And while no other details of the device have been talked about officially, past leaks have told us that the phone might come with a dual-camera setup consisting of 12MP wide and ultra-wide cameras.
The 6a is expected to launch alongside the Pixel Watch, which has also been leaked previously. It might sport a round dial and grab a bezel-less design. Different colored bands may also be offered with this apparent device.
That being said, both the Pixel 6a and the Pixel Watch could very well be launched at the Google I/O keynote, which is supposed to take place on May 18.
