“Imminent” release of the Google Pixel 6a is possible.
According to rumours, production of the Google Pixel 6a has begun, and the device’s release is said to be “imminent.” It’s been reported by Mukul “StuffListings” Sharma on Twitter, who claims that Google has begun manufacturing Pixel 6a phones in Indonesia and maybe India.
The Pixel 6a is expected to be unveiled at Google I/O 2022, which takes place on Wednesday. This latest allegation fits up with the general consensus of speculations (including clues from Google’s own CEO) (May 11).
According to the I/O speculations, Google is rescheduling its product releases if the Pixel 5a debuted in August of this year. The Pixel 5a was only available in the United States and Japan, most likely as a result of supply chain concerns and chip shortages linked to the coronavirus outbreak. The Pixel 6a, like the Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a 5G, is expected to be released internationally in 2020.
A phone that is said to be in production only days before its expected unveiling may yet be some time away from its actual release. A date of July 28 has been floated, which would provide a significant amount of time between the announcement of the phone and its sale.
The Pixel 6a is expected to reshape Google’s mid-range a-series lineup in the same way that the Pixel 6 did at the end of last year. A horizontal camera bar on the rear would incorporate both the primary and super wide-angle cameras. A Google Tensor chip might even be used, providing it a significant performance advantage over most of its competitors at the same price, such as the Samsung Galaxy A53 or OnePlus Nord 2.
In the next several days, all of these reports might be proven. It will be interesting to see whether Google reveals the Pixel 6a during its presentation at Google I/O, or if it sticks to discussing software like Android 13.
