Google Pixel 7a expected to be quite a substantial upgrade


Google’s Pixel A-series of devices are typically more affordable versions of the company’s flagship Pixel phones, and as such, their specs don’t quite match up to their more expensive counterparts.

To be fair, that was kind of the intention where Google would offer users a Pixel experience but on a budget, so what can you really expect? That being said, it seems that next year’s Pixel A-series update could be one to look forward to.

According to the reports, one of the main changes to the Pixel 7a would be the choice of material Google will be using, and apparently they will be opting to use ceramic, something that we typically see in higher-end handsets. It is also rumored that the handset could feature the use of the P9222 chip for wireless charging that is capable of providing 5W.

It has also been rumored that the handset could use the Samsung GN1 sensor for its camera. This 50MP 1/1.3=inch sensor was previously used on the Pixel 6 series, which means that combined with Google’s imaging algorithm, should produce a Pixel A-series handset that can take even better photos than its predecessors.

This is quite exciting if it’s true, and Google would have created a mid-range handset that could pose a challenge to Samsung’s own Galaxy A-series of phones. The Pixel 7a is expected to debut some time in 2023, possibly at Google I/O, so we still have a bit of waiting to do.
