Google is gearing up to launch the Pixel 7a, a mid-range smartphone, at its I/O 2023 event on May 10. As per the latest leak by tipster Paras Guglani, the phone is expected to launch in five different color options, which is a first for the A-series Pixel phones. These colors include Dinuguan Black, Crispy Kale, Mayo Cream, Tide Orange, and Vibrant Ube. Additionally, the Pixel 7a is also tipped to come with a 256GB storage option, which is double the storage of its predecessor, the Pixel 6a.
Apart from the increased storage, the Pixel 7a is rumored to have 8GB of RAM, which is a bump up from the 6GB RAM on the Pixel 6a. The phone is expected to have a dual-camera setup on the back, with a 64MP Sony IMX787 main camera sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide camera sensor. For selfies, the phone is said to feature a 10.8MP front camera, which is the same as the one found in the more premium Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.
The Pixel 7a will come with a 6.1-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a Full HD+ resolution. The phone will have a punch-hole cutout at the top center of the screen. Under the hood, the phone is likely to feature the Tensor G2 SoC, which is Google’s custom-designed chipset.
The phone’s design renders reveal a metallic visor-like camera module on the back, and it is said to support 5W wireless charging. However, the battery and charging speed details are currently unknown. The Pixel 7a will run Android 13 out of the box, and it is expected to launch in India soon after the I/O 2023 debut. The phone was also leaked in real-life images. More information on availability and pricing is expected to be announced by Google soon.
