A while back, we got a sneak peek at some design renders of Google’s upcoming Pixel 8a midrange phone. Expected to launch next year, no official details have been given on the handset, although a new set of design photos have been making their rounds on the internet.
A set of hands-on photos show a supposed production dummy of the Pixel 8a, which comes with a familiar design similar to the Pixel 8 which was launched a month ago. As such, the dummy comes with a curved look, the same button placements, and the same camera bar design on the rear panel. The photos were published online by @xleaks7 in cooperation with tech site Pigtou.
With that being said though, it does feature slightly thicker bezels in comparison to the Pixel 8 series, and a slightly smaller physical profile.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen images of the Pixel 8a – previously, digital image renders and supposed hands-on photos of the phone itself made rounds online, in addition to a Geekbench listing that details some of the specs inside the phone.
Referred to as “Google Akita” in the Geekbench listing, the device comes with an underclocked Tensor G3 chipset, and managed to score 1218 for single-core performance, and 3175 for multi-core performance. The listing also reveals 8GB of RAM inside.
