Google Pixel 6a every rumor and leak we know so far


It’s possible that Google Pixel 6a may be released sooner than you expect. The frequency of leaks has accelerated, and the inexpensive phone looks to be headed for a spring appearance. Google I/O 2022 will be held on May 11th, which means it might debut on Wednesday.

For Google, the Pixel 6a is a major thing. When the Pixel 5a was released last year, we enjoyed it, but it had too many similarities with the Pixel 4a 5G for us to consider it a modern device. Rumored enhancements to the cameras, CPU, and battery, as well as a new Pixel 6-style design, might change that with the next phone. This might be just what Google needs to dominate the finest low-cost smartphones.

The Pixel 6a is likely to be the first of several new products from Google in 2022. Check out our list of the top 5 Google Pixel 6a rumours to stay up to date on all the latest rumours and speculation regarding the upcoming Pixel.


Google Pixel 6a release date and pricing predictions for consumers

We now know Google is working on a Pixel 6a thanks to an odd colouring book leak. But when will it arrive, and how much money will you have to spend on it?

The Pixel 5a was released in the United States and Japan on August 26, 2021. There was no explanation from Google on why the phone was only available in two countries, although we anticipate the continuing chip scarcity to be a factor.

If Google has begun manufacturing of the Pixel 6a, we wouldn’t be shocked if the phone was released around the same time as its predecessor or maybe a bit early.


As a result, the Pixel 6a might be unveiled on May 11 at Google I/O 2022; be sure to watch the live stream of Google I/O 2022 to stay up to date on all the latest developments. A month or two after that, the phone will be on sale.

The Pixel 6a’s pricing is as uncertain as when it will be available. At $399, the smaller Pixel 3a (which came in two sizes) was more expensive than the Pixel 4a, which was available for $349 less. As a result, Google raised up the price of the Pixel 5a to $449 and added a second camera and 5G.

Depending on the processor used by Google, the Pixel 6a might cost as little as $449. You’d think Google would want to keep its pricing in line with Samsung’s Galaxy A53, which is now selling for $449. Despite this, I’ve already come up with five ways the Google Pixel 6a may outperform the Samsung Galaxy A53.


The design and display of the Google Pixel 6a

Google’s next affordable phone might look a lot like the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, according to images of a fake Google Pixel 6a. The most notable change is the absence of a 3.5mm audio port and the addition of a camera bar rather than a module.

It’s not apparent whether these photos are real or not. Pixel a phones in the past, on the other hand, have continued the design language established by the flagship Pixel models. According to apparently leaked Google Pixel 6a renderings, the rumoured specifications of the next phone have been confirmed.

A snapshot of what looks to be the Google Pixel 6a packaging has lent validity to these fake devices and renderings. It depicts a phone that looks somewhat like the Pixel 6.


The catch is that this might all be a Photoshopped Pixel 6a box, so be on the lookout for the real thing.

The rear of the phone in the leaked picture seems to be glossy, which suggests that it is constructed of glass like that of the Pixel 6 rather than the plastic backs that have been utilised from the debut of the Pixel A-series phones.

Alleged images of a Google Pixel 6a case provide validity to the aforementioned design speculations and leaks. Unlike the Pixel 6, it has a huge rectangular camera bar taken out and resembles its form and appearance. This means that the Pixel 6a’s design will be similar to that of its more expensive brother, the Pixel 6.


The Pixel 6’s design may be controversial, but it’s undeniably unique, and its inclusion in the Pixel 6a wouldn’t be a terrible thing.

The 6.2-inch, 60Hz display on the Pixel 6a is based on a major specifications leak from Shadow leak. Compared to the Pixel 5a’s 6.4-inch display, this is a tad smaller. However, the stated refresh rate is more discouraging. Even in the price range of the Pixel a-series, many smartphones are already running at 90Hz, 120Hz, or even higher refresh rates. In light of Google’s use of a 90Hz display on the standard Pixel 6, the Pixel 6a’s 60Hz panel looks like an unusual choice as well.

Finally, a 90Hz rumour has surfaced courtesy of Yogesh Brar. Unless Brar is on to something, the Pixel 6a might be a major letdown for everyone.


Leaks from a US carrier database indicate that the phone will come in three colours: black, white, and green. That’s a step up from the Pixel 5a, which was only available in black.

the Google Pixel 6a’s

Codenamed “bluejay” by Mishaal Rahman, this is the “Pixel 6a,” according to Rahman. The Sony IMX363, IMX386 and IMX355 sensors identified by Rahman might be used in a bluejay camera configuration. Specifications of Shadow leak By stating the 6a would include a 12MP primary camera, 12MP ultrawide camera, and 8MP selfie camera, a leak has rounded out what we already know.

When it comes to its front-facing camera, the Pixel 5a combined an 8MP IMX355 with a 12MP IMX363 sensor. A sensor decrease isn’t warranted since the 16MP IMX481 sensor was used in the ultrawide. Compared to the IMX481’s 1.0 m pixel size, this one has 1.25 m. Even though the Pixel 6a has a lower pixel count, it should be able to create superior overall photos because of its larger pixels.


Even if the Pixel 6a has a different sensor than the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, it may not include the Motion Mode. According to Android developer Kuba Wojciechowski, through XDA Developers, who discovered an exclusion surrounding the ‘bluejay’ device in the Pixel Tips app’s source code. In that case, the new inexpensive phone would be devoid of a function introduced with the Pixel 6 line of smartphones last year.

Google’s Pixel 6a has a lot of power.

The Google Tensor chipset from the Pixel 6 is expected to be included in the Pixel 6a, along with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, according to Shadow leak’s intel. A Geekbench score that seems to be for the 6a displays specifications that match those of the Tensor processor, as well as 6GB of RAM.

Additionally, a new Geekbench listing claims that Pixel 6a performs somewhat better than Pixel 6. The gadget in question has a single-core score of 1,050 and a multicore score of 2,833. Look at the Pixel 6’s 1,044 and 2,758 scores. According to Geekbench standards, this difference is minuscule; yet, it’s interesting to see that the Pixel 6a may be on level with its predecessor. In light of these similarities, it’s safe to assume that the 6a makes use of the same Tensor processor.


It’s fantastic that the Tensor chip is now being used. It’s a high-end chipset that’s comparable to last year’s Snapdragon 888 in terms of performance. The Pixel 6a may be the most powerful phone in its pricing range save the iPhone SE or the impending iPhone SE 3.

Pixel 6a battery and charging port

According to the rumours, the Pixel 6a would have a 4,800 mAh battery and 30W charging. The Pixel 5a’s 4,680 mAh battery has a tiny capacity bump, but the Pixel 5a’s 18W charging speed has seen a significant rise.

Because Google didn’t provide chargers with the Pixel 6 series, this might be a problem. As such, it’s hardly surprising that the Pixel 6a comes without one.


iPhone SE 2022 versus Google Pixel 6a

There is significant competition for the Pixel 6a now that the iPhone SE 2022 is on the market for $429 with an A15 Bionic CPU and 5G. Despite the lack of a second camera on the back, Apple’s phone is able to function at a high level and take outstanding photos. However, the screen size is the same at 4.7 inches.

In this comparison of the iPhone SE 3 vs. Google Pixel 6a, we’ll see how the Google Pixel 6a may be able to trump the iPhone SE 2022.

Google’s new Pixel 6a

In the present state of the leaks, the Pixel 6a seems to be even more impressive than the Pixel 5 was when it was first announced. New CPU, improved camera and quicker charging are all expected to be included in the next version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. All of these changes are to be applauded. We’ve compiled a list of all the Pixel 6 features we’d want to see in the Pixel 6a, too.


In order to make our list of the best Android phones, Google has to be cautious with the pricing of the Pixel 6a. To make the phone even more appealing, the $449 price of the Pixel 5a might be slashed to $400 or less.

The Pixel 6a should be available in more countries than only the United States and Japan. In spite of the fact that there is a worldwide scarcity of computer chips, maybe Google can still allow its admirers in other countries to purchase the phone
