Yesterday, we actually spotted the unannounced Google Pixel Fold travelling through a subway tunnel beneath New York City. Today, a Twitter tipster showcases three live shots of the Pixel 7a, which seems to be Google’s next midrange smartphone. Debayan Roy, also known as Gadgetsdata, provided the images. One depicts the gadget’s rear, which features the now-iconic Pixel camera bar, and the other shows the About phone page (in Vietnamese), which makes it abundantly apparent that the device is the Pixel 7a (follow the red arrow).
The 6.1-inch OLED display, which has a refresh rate of 90Hz (the Pixel 6a had a refresh rate of 60Hz), a 1080p resolution, and a 90Hz refresh rate, is said to be how Google has improved its mid-ranger this year, according to rumors. The Pixel 7a might be the first Tensor-powered phone to have Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi Bluetooth chip, the WCN6740 since the Tensor 2 SoC is anticipated to be inside. Roy claims that the body is composed of metal and is not plastic.
According to rumors, the 64MP Sony IMX787 image sensor, which is expected to support the back camera array, will be present in the Pixel 7a. A 12MP sensor will keep the second rear-facing lens for an ultra-wide camera (supposedly the Sony IMX712). And if the rumors are true, the gadget may feature 5W wireless charging.
The Magic Eraser, which lets you delete unpleasant people, animals, and objects from images, should also work with the phone. The Direct My Call tool, which displays all of your options when you call a business, should also be included. This enables you to avoid listening to the recording (“Press 1 for accounting, press 2 for customer service, press 3 for sales”). The Pixel 7a may come with Picture Unblur, which corrects fuzzy photographs shot with any camera and saved on your Google Photos app, since it will be powered by the Tensor 2.
Tipster Shrimp Also, ApplePro posted real-time pictures of himself using the Pixel 7a on his Twitter page (tip of the hat to my colleague Martin).
This mid-range Pixel device, which has a back that resembles the Pixel 7’s, is already shaping out to be a fascinating one. When viewed from the front, the Pixel 7a’s bezels are thicker.
Having 6GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of storage was a highlight of the Pixel 6a; the Pixel 7a may have the same specs this year. With no disrespect intended, the Pixel 6a was sold for $449, and the Pixel 7a may follow suit. We were hopeful for a repeat of Google’s excellent trade-in prices from last year.
