Google’s Pixel 7 series has been on the market since last fall. While users can choose between the regular and Pro versions, Google will soon present a version for less demanding users or those on a budget – Pixel 7a.
Although there is no official information yet, the Pixel 7a has surfaced in photos published on PhoneCompares, which show that it will be similar to its “older brother”. Namely, it will have a hole for a selfie camera near the top, a slightly rounded glass back, and a recognizable camera system in the form of a visor. The edges around the screen will be slightly thicker than on the Pixel 7, in order to still create some difference between the more expensive and cheaper models.
Google Pixel 7a Specs
Pixel 7a from these photos bears the model number GHL1X, which has 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and 128 GB of UFS 3.1 internal memory. It has a USB-C port and one SIM slot at the bottom. Among other specifications is a 6.1-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
Pixel 7a is said to be powered by Google’s Tensor G2 SoC and has a 64-megapixel Sony IMX787 sensor and a 12MP ultra-wide “on the back”. The novelty will be the possibility of wireless charging of 5W, although many would probably mistake it for the 120-hertz screen, which has long been the standard in this range.
The Pixel 7a is expected to be unveiled at the Google I/O 2023 conference in May.
