In a few of weeks, if Sundar Pichai’s predictions are correct, we might be holding the Pixel 6a in our hands. Pichai is in charge of the whole corporation, thus they’re most likely right.

It was disclosed yesterday (April 26) that Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has failed Wall Street’s profit and sales estimates. When it comes to Google’s performance, the true story lies in statements Pichai made to analysts on a conference call.


In Pichai’s estimation, Google’s Pixel 6 phones have been the best-selling devices of the year. With “the fastest-selling Pixel ever, and we’re creating wide customer awareness and making terrific progress,” Pichai added, according to an earnings transcript from Google posted at Motley

Any follower of Google’s mobile strategy should be surprised by what Pichai had to say after that. At Google I/O, “I’m looking forwards to revealing more about our upcoming products,” he said.

Google I/O, the company’s annual developer conference, kicks up on May 11 and we should expect to see hardware. The Pixel 6a is expected to be unveiled during the event.


It’s nothing new for Google to do this. At Google I/O in 2019, the Pixel 3a, the first phone in the Pixel A series, made its introduction. The coronavirus pandemic and the worldwide processor shortages generated by the epidemic appeared to influence the release timetable of subsequent Pixel A phones in the summer.

Rumors going back to the beginning of the year have placed the Pixel 6a’s release date around May. The phone apparently arrived at the FCC for regulatory clearances earlier this month. Even while Pichai didn’t mention the Pixel 6a by name, his statements appear to indicate that the phone’s release is soon.

There is no doubt that the time is perfect for Google to release a new low-cost smartphone. The iPhone SE (2022) and the Galaxy A53 have both been released in the last several months, both of which cost less than $500.


The Galaxy A53, in particular, has become an appealing alternative to Google’s affordable phones.. Our comparison of the Samsung Galaxy A53 vs. the Pixel 5a examines why this is the case.) There is no way Google’s Pixel 6a can compete with Samsung’s new product for the title of finest low-cost smartphone under $500.

According to reports, the Pixel 6a is capable of taking on the Galaxy A53 in a number of different ways. In addition, the Pixel 5a is one of the greatest camera phones for less than $500, and we anticipate the Pixel 6a to be no different. According to rumours, Google’s Tensor processor will be included in the Pixel 6a, which might lead to a variety of AI-powered features for the low-cost phone.

For example, Pichai hinted to many product launches at Google I/O in his remarks to Wall Street analysts. He may have possibly been referring to Google’s long-awaited wristwatch project, the Pixel Watch, which would showcase the Wear OS software.
