High-quality press renders have leaked onto the internet, giving us a full look at the upcoming Pixel 7a before its official unveiling.
We expect to see Google announce its next affordable smartphone, the Pixel 7a, at Google I/O itself on May 10. However, thanks to official press reports provided by WinFuturee (next to previous leaks), there’s very little we don’t already know.
The renders seem destined for use in Pixel 7a retail listings, as they show the device in multiple shades from identical, crisp angles. We get the Pixel 7a front, back (as well as rear corners) and sides in shades of blue, white and grey.
Along with the phone itself, the website has also provided renders of the official protective case that will apparently be offered alongside the Pixel 7a – again in all three colors blue, white and dark grey.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen high-quality renders claiming to be of the Pixel 7a. All of the renders we’ve seen look alike, painting the picture of a budget phone that looks a lot like the mid-range Pixel 7 rather than the existing Pixel 6a.
While this latest leak doesn’t say anything about the internal specs of the Pixel 7a, we’ve heard from other sources that Google’s next affordable phone will step things up considerably. Expect the same Tensor G2 chip as the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, plus a display refresh rate of 90Hz instead of 60Hz.
Also expect a 64-megapixel main camera and wireless charging. All those extras will apparently come with a $50 price increase to $499 (probably £499), too, but that’s sort of sounds like a good value to us all the same.
