The Google Pixel 6a Retail Box Has Been Leaked

The Google Pixel 6a Retail Box Has Been Leaked

We already know a lot about Google’s next mid-range phone, and a new Pixel 6a leak adds to our knowledge. Techxine has leaked a photo of the Pixel 6a retail packaging, implying that the phone will be released shortly — maybe in time for Google I/O 2022?

The picture doesn’t reveal anything new about the google pixel 6a, but it does reaffirm what we already know about it. If the image is genuine, it’s more evidence that the Pixel 6a will follow in the footsteps of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, with a Nexus 6P-style camera visor adorning the very top of the rear. We’re nearly convinced that the rear of the black phone depicted on the box is made of glass, but it might possibly be glossy plastic, as we’ve seen on sections of the Pixel 3a’s back. The sides might be made of plastic or metal with a coating, however, prior speculations suggested an all-plastic design.

The Design of the Google Pixel 6a 

You’ll also notice a small pill-shaped outline surrounding the two cameras in the visor if you look closely, which is consistent with the previously released renderings. In comparison to the Pixel 6, the LED on the right is arriving in the way that earlier renderings revealed, with the Pixel 6a missing the microphone hole and the laser focusing in its proximity.

Aside from that, this leaked retail box is a near-perfect replica of the google pixel 6a packaging, at least based on what we can see. The Google logo is centred at the top, with the term “Pixel 6a” just beneath it.

All of this is to say that we should approach this leak with a good grain of suspicion. From what we can see, Techxine only started publishing in December 2021, and it doesn’t appear that the magazine has ever had any unique Pixel leaks of this magnitude. The image’s low quality doesn’t assist the case because it makes it simpler to hide suspected counterfeits. However, considering that the shape of the shown phone matches prior leaks and the box doesn’t appear to be a complete forgery, we’re inclined to believe that this is the Pixel 6a packing.
