Pixel 7a will be launching in 2023. A device codenamed ‘Lynx’ was previously making rounds on social media. It was rumored to be the Pixel 7 Ultra. However, it is now believed to be the upcoming Pixel 7a. It seems very unlikely that this rumor would turn out to be true.
Google Pixel A-series
Google Pixel A devices symbolize cheap devices with necessary features only. The Pixel 3a was a huge hit as it brought the great Pixel experience at a lower price tag. Similarly, the Pixel 4a and 5a also sold well. Software and cameras were the major selling points of these A-series phones. However, design and performance also became key selling points with the Pixel 6a.
The Pixel 6a was powered by the same Tensor chipsets as its premium counterparts. Furthermore, the device also came with a similar design to the Pixel 6 series. The budget cuts included the cheap plastic build, 60Hz display, and lack of wireless charging. In addition, it also used the same sensor as the 5a while previously the 5a used the same sensor as the 5.
Rumored Pixel 7a Features
Firstly, the Pixel 7a will supposedly have a more premium ceramic back. Remember that these are only rumors for now. Using a ceramic back instead of the glass used in the 7 series is very surprising and hard to believe. Only time will tell if these leaks turn out to be true or not.
Furthermore, the Pixel 7a will also feature wireless charging which will be another first for an A-series device. Adding on, there will be huge upgrades in the camera department as well. There will be three rear cameras. The rumored 7a will be using the same 50MP sensor as the 7 while it will be using a higher resolution 64MP telephoto and 13MP ultra-wide lenses. This is all very hard to believe. Going by these reports, the 7a will be a better phone than the 7.
There haven’t been any leaks about the display and it may even beat the 7 Pro. Either these details are not correct or this device is the Ultra as rumored before. Let’s see what turns out to be true and what doesn’t. Nevertheless, these reports make me excited about Google looking to upgrade the A-series.
