It was just the beginning of this month when Google finally presented the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, the two terminals that will lead its assault on the high-end during the next year. However, as in previous generations, Mountain View is also preparing a lower-performance and cheaper smartphone, the Google Pixel 8a.
While Google still keeps this device under lock and key, @OnLeaksone of the leakers most recognized in the world of mobile telephony, has had access to the schematics of the Google Pixel 8a. From that material he was able to create some renders which, barring any surprise, will be very close to the final version of the product.
Like its older brothers, the Google Pixel 8a would arrive with notable differences from its predecessor. Show off more rounded frames and corners, which are quite far from the lines seen on the Pixel 7A. In fact, it reminds us, to a certain extent, of the iPhone 6. There is no doubt that this design, if it turns out to be true, will improve ergonomics significantly.
Of course, on the back, the Google Pixel 8a is practically identical to the previous generation. The configuration is maintained two cameras located on a surface that protrudes from side to side. The flash also appears on the right side.
It is possible that, in terms of hardware, we will not see a leap in the photographic section. However, it must be remembered that Google’s efforts are focused on improving the quality of captures through the software.
According to @OnLeaks and SmartPrix, The Google Pixel 8a measures 152.1 x 72.6 x 8.9 mm. That is, it is slightly smaller than the Pixel 7A (152.4 x 72.9 x 9.0 mm). The screen, for its part, reaches 6.1 inches diagonal. In the images you can notice that Google is once again opting for a flat panel and a perforation at the top to give space to the front camera.
In Smartprix They believe that the Google Pixel 8a will integrate the Tensor G3 processor. However, its performance would be lower if we bought it with that of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. The RAM, for its part, would be 8 GB.
So, with these renders we can inaugurate the wave of leaks of the Google Pixel 8a. Rest assured, more details will emerge in the coming months. If the company’s plans head down the same path as previous years, the device should be officially presented during the second quarter of 2024.
