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.

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.

Furthermore, the 6a has NFC, WiFi6, and a Titan M2 chip for security. The device is also rated IP67 for water and dust resistance. The mid-ranger packs a 4410 mAh battery and will run Android 12. Google promises up to 3 OS upgrades and 5 years of security upgrades. The device comes in three color options – Chalk, Charcoal and Sage. Lastly, the 6a starts at $449 for the 6GB/128GB configuration.
