With the Pixel 7 range out now, Google’s focus will have shifted to the Pixel 7a which is expected to launch sometime in the middle of 2023. As usual, speculations, rumors and leaks have started pouring in about this device, with the latest among them revealing its design.
Smartprix has collaborated with OnLeaks to share what they are calling “the very first glimpse of Google Pixel 7a.” The high-resolution renders of the device show us that its design might not be much different from that of the Pixel 6a that was launched earlier this year.
That means a rectangular camera strip will be retained on the back, making it a home for two sensors – one wide, one ultra-wide. Previous leaks have suggested that the phone could adopt a 64MP main sensor, apart from a 13MP secondary one.
Furthermore, the leak goes on to reveal that the Pixel 7a could feature dimensions reading 152.4 x 72.9 x 9.0mm. Here too, there’s not much of a difference between this phone and its predecessor. A USB-C port is of course seen in the renders, while the 3.5mm jack is expectedly absent.
Like it did with the Pixel 6a, Google will most likely equip the 7a handset with its latest chipset – the Tensor G2. And there’s also a good possibility that the new device will finally see a shift to high-refresh-rate displays for Pixel’s a-series handsets.
Both these features form the main highlights of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro handsets that were launched in October. Their main assent though is still their camera setup that includes a 50MP main sensor, a 12MP ultra-wide camera, and a 48MP telephoto snapper (Pro-only).
There’s still a lot of time for the Pixel 7a to be announced so we’ll keep you posted about all the leaks and rumors.
