Pixel 7a is definitely one of the most awaited smartphones by Google, and thanks to fresh leaks (and hopefully accurate), we get to see a glimpse of the final specs and features. These recent rumors actually came just in time, as the Google I/O event is now around the corner.

Thanks to 91Mobiles and tipster Yogesh Brar, more specs and features of the Pixel 7a, including a second-gen Tensor G2 processor and increased RAM to 8GB, are now revealed. Although this would be an improvement over the earlier A-series phones, UFS 3.1 storage is expected to actually be limited to 128GB. Remember that Google didn’t confirm any of these, so it would help to take everything with a pinch of salt!

Pixel 7a’s Specs and Features: What to Expect?

The use of a 6.1-inch screen with a 90Hz refresh rate is also confirmed by this alleged Pixel 7a spec sheet. How will this improve the performance? Well, based on that, the Pixel 7a could be on similar ‘ground’ as the Pixel 6a. However, the faster refresh rate will be compatible with the OLED display used in the Pixel 7 smartphone.

It’s interesting to note that these leaked specs indicate the Pixel 7a will feature a larger battery than the Pixel 7, with a 4,400mAh battery. To recall, the Pixel 7 came with a 4,355mAh internal cell.

What are your thoughts about the next Pixel 7a?

Check out the specs that could make it to the final list:

  • Display: 6.1-inch / 90Hz
  • Main camera: 64MP
  • Secondary camera: 13MP
  • Selfie camera: 10.8MP
  • Chipset: Tensor G2Software: Android 13
  • Memory: 8GB LPDDR5
  • Storage: 128GB UFS 3.1
  • Battery: 4,400mAh
  • Charging: 20W wired charging and wireless charging

Additionally, the Pixel 7a could be available on May 11 and cost around $499. It could also come in Arctic Blue, Carbon, and Cotton colors. In order to provide an entry-level choice that would compete favorably with the Pixel 8 series later this year, it is evident that Google chose to cut and get rid of some key specs and features for the Pixel 7a. What a shame!
