Google Pixel 6a, all the main technical features

We told you several previews about Google’s Pixel 6a just yesterday but we already have to go back to the subject because several new rumors have emerged – basically the complete technical data sheet of what will be the next Mountain View midrange, and the first with a proprietary SoC.

Tensor, the same as seen in the flagships announced last fall. The new information comes from the insider known on Twitter as Shadow_Leak, perhaps not as famous and prolific as the various Ice_Universe or Evleaks but with certain reliability, especially regarding the Microsoft world. We list the details below:

  • Display of 6.2 “OLED (The source had indicated a 120 Hz refresh, but said she was mistaken), flat edges
  • Google Tensor GS101 SoC, exactly the same as the other two Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
  • 8 or 6 GB of RAM
  • 128GB of internal storage
  • Cameras:
  • 12.2MP main rear (Sony IMX363 sensor)
  • rear secondary 12MP ultra-wide angle (Sony IMX386 sensor)
  • 8 MP front (Sony IMX355 sensor)
  • Battery from 4,800 mAh, support the rapid charging at 30 W
  • Thickness 8.7 mm
  • Android 12 operating system

The last point on the list may seem like an unnecessary clarification, but it is right to contextualize it from an Android 12L perspective: that yes, it will be aimed mainly at folding tablets and smartphones, but it will also arrive on traditional smartphones. Android 12L should be released towards the end of March/beginning of April, while just yesterday we reported that the Pixel 6a event will probably be at the end of May.

It is strange to think that a Google smartphone is presented without the latest version of the system which has been on the market for 2 months already. Of course, nothing is certain: maybe the source was simply wrong, or it was simply a little more generic (technically Android 12L is always Android 12).
