Google Pixel 7a rumors hint at a huge upgrade over previous models
What you need to know
- The upcoming Google Pixel 7a is rumored to have flagship-level specs.
- Google’s next Pixel A model may feature a premium camera similar to the Pixel 6 series.
- The phone is said to also have wireless charging and a ceramic body.
Google’s next mid-range smartphone model might not be a mid-range after all, at least in terms of specs, according to rumors gathered by people at 9to5Google (Opens in a new tab). Evidence suggests that the Pixel 7a will have a flagship-style chassis and hardware.
According to a previous leak from Digital Chat Station, Google is developing a new model that uses the same Tensor G2 chipset as Google Pixel 7 series. While this phone appears to be a flagship model, 9to5 suggests it could be the Pixel 7a due to a similar camera sensor arrangement as “Lynx,” which is rumored to be the codename for the next Pixel A-series device.
The body may also be a significant upgrade over previous models. Rumors say that the Pixel 7a will ship with a ceramic body, while Google Pixel 6a Older models have a plastic back panel (aluminum for Pixel 5a). The upgrades don’t seem to stop there, as the next generation device is supposed to support wireless charging, which is not uncommon on many devices. Best cheap Android phones.
Another major improvement is possible in the camera department. According to rumors, the Pixel 7a will have a flagship camera, featuring Samsung’s GN1 sensor. This is the same camera sensor found in the 50MP cameras of Pixel 6 And the Pixel 6 Pro. Furthermore, the phone has a Sony-made IMX787 sensor for telephoto and an IMX712 sensor for wide-angle photography. For selfies, the front camera of the device is supposed to be equipped with an IMX712 sensor.
This doesn’t mean the Pixel 6a’s camera is below average. However, while the camera takes good pictures, it doesn’t quite live up to the image quality of its flagship counterparts.
The above specs aren’t usually associated with a mid-range phone, so these rumors leave us wondering if Google will sell the upcoming device at an affordable price, as it did with its predecessor.
The Pixel 6a, a phone with a powerful camera and Google Tensor processor, raises the bar for phones under $500.
