Google Pixel 8a is shown for the first time with its official sales package, let’s see the alleged technical characteristics
Google is preparing the launch of its new mid-range smartphone, the Pixel 8awhich should be officially presented next May, at the conference Google I/O. The device was spotted in a photo showing its sales packaging, revealing some details about the design and specifications.
Google Pixel 8a: possible specifications
The Pixel 8a will be the successor to the Pixel 7a, one of the most popular models in the Pixel range for its excellent quality-price ratio. The new smartphone should maintain the same form factor as its predecessor, with a 6.1-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a pill hole for the front camera. The processor will probably be a Tensor G3 (the same as the current tops), accompanied by 8 GB in RAM and at least 128 GB of internal memory.
The most obvious novelty concerns the rear photographic compartment, which will be composed of two sensors (one main and one ultra-wide angle) inside a horizontal bar that will not be connected to the frame but will be part of the rear panel, most likely made in plastic. This solution should guarantee greater resistance to impacts and scratches, as well as cheaper production. There photo quality it should still be high, thanks to Google’s software and its own Pixel Camera which uses artificial intelligence to optimize shots.
The Pixel 8a will also feature the 5G connectivity, at least in the version intended for the US market, where it will also support mmWave frequencies. For other markets, including the European one, it is possible that Google will opt for only one version Sub-6 GHzcheaper and less energy intensive.
Google Pixel 8a: price and availability
According to images online, the Pixel 8a will be available in two colors: black and blue. The price is not yet known, but it is assumed that it will be similar to that of the Pixel 7a, which starts at $449 in the United States. The device will obviously be based on Android 14 and will receive security and system updates for at least three years. This is unless Google decides to adopt the same 7 year policy even for the cheapest series.
