Live photos of the Google Pixel 7a smartphone, which is preparing to replace the Pixel 6a released last year, have appeared on the Internet. Along with the photo, Zing News revealed some details about the specifications of the new gadget, which is said to get support for 5W wireless charging.
The design of the back of the Pixel 7a is almost identical to that of the Pixel 7 smartphone. The novelty, in contrast to the all-glass module of the Pixel 6a, received a characteristic dual rear camera that combines glass and metal.
The front of the phone is pretty much the same as its predecessor, with thick bezels framing the screen with a punch-hole at the top for the front camera.
According to the screenshot, the Pixel 7a has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The Pixel 7 has the same amount of RAM, while the Pixel 6a has 2GB less. Google usually only offers one RAM option for A-series models.
The Pixel 7a reportedly comes with a 6.1-inch FHD+ OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate. The device is powered by the proprietary Tensor G2 chip, which is also used in the Pixel 7. The Pixel 7a’s main camera packs a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 sensor, complemented by a 12-megapixel wide-angle sensor, which is a sizeable upgrade over the rear-camera-equipped Pixel 6a, which has two 12-megapixel sensors. The novelty uses LPDDR5 RAM and a UFS 3.1 flash drive. The smartphone features a single SIM card slot with a tray seal, as well as a USB-C port for charging. The device runs Android 13.
Google released the Pixel 6a in July, despite unveiling the phone at Google I/O 2022 in May. Apparently, the Google Pixel 7a will also be presented in May. Google I/O 2023 is said to start on May 10th.
