Before we see the release of Pixel 7 later this fall, Google I / O started yesterday with the release of a new member of the Pixel 6 family, which is the cheapest on the one hand and includes the same Tensor processor built to Google’s requirements.
It also retains the family’s transverse design, albeit with more subdued features and thankfully more compact dimensions for some. After all, it has a 6.1-inch FHD + OLED screen. The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and has a refresh rate of only 60 Hz. Note, however, that the back panel is plastic, which is consistent with this segment.
The Pixel 6a definitely stands out with the Tensor, which is the same processor as the other Pixel 6 and should give you a kick above its price, as well as LPDDR5 RAM (6GB) and 128GB of UFS 3.1 memory. It is also a secure device with the Titan M2 security chip. The available battery is 4410 mAh and 18 watts charging via USB-PD.
When we get to the cameras, the Pixel 6a doesn’t leave us with a confusing number of cameras or resolution. It has only a 12.2 megapixel main camera and a 12 megapixel ultra-wide angle camera, while the front camera is 8 megapixels. As usual, Google invests in everything already known through an advanced ISP and algorithms.
It’s an interesting smartphone, of course, but predictably it will be available in neighboring Spain, but not in Portugal.
