These are the only select countries who will see the Google Pixel 6a officially. Fans in other countries will have to import devices. Google really needs to work towards catering demands of consumers all around the world.
After setting the tone with the successful Pixel 6 series, Google looks to build on that with the launch of Pixel 6a. The device retains the camera visor at the back. There are dual rear cameras and a single LED flash housed in the camera module. Google has used the same camera system from the Pixel 5 on the 6a. There is an 8MP front camera while the dual rear cameras are 12.2MP and 12MP sensors. It also has a dual-tone finish with a glass back and metal frame similar to its elder siblings.
The phone weighs 178g and is 8.9mm thick. There is a 6.1″ flat OLED display on the front which has a 60Hz refresh rate. It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner and a punch-hole selfie shooter in the center. In addition, there is a Type-C 3.1 port along with two grills, one for the speaker and one for the microphone. There are antenna bands on all four sides, and the SIM card housing is on the left side of the device with no headphone jack. Moreover, Google has featured the same Tensor chip in the 6a. This is great news. As it will bring the same technical prowess as the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro.
Furthermore, the 6a has NFC, WiFi6, and a Titan M2 chip for security. 6a is also rated IP67 for water and dust resistance. The mid-ranger packs a 4410 mAh battery and will run Android 12.
