We recommend readers to take this report with a pinch of salt since the flagship Pixel 6 series debuted just last month. Notably, the Pixel 5a was launched in August this year, hence it may be too early to speculate on its successor, i.e. Pixel 6a. Google is also yet to confirm the existence of its upcoming mid-range device.

9to5Google reports that the Pixel 6a’s camera is codenamed ‘Bluejay’ and has been found within the Google Camera app by its APK Insight team. The smartphone is said to feature a 12.2MP primary camera with Sony IMX363 sensor which is the same as one found on Pixel 3 to Pixel 5a. The main sensor will be paired with another 12MP Sony IMX386 lens that is expected to work as an ultrawide-angle shooter. On the front, the device will come with an 8MP Sony IMX355 selfie snapper that is the same as the standard Pixel 6. 

Additionally, the report reveals that the Pixel 6a will be powered by Google’s Tensor chipset. It will pack features like Google Assistant voice typing, Live HDR, and more. 

As for the leaked renders, the Pixel 6a is expected to borrow the same design as the Pixel 6 series. It will feature a centre-aligned punch-hole display and a dual-toned back panel with a horizontal camera bridge. The smartphone is tipped to sport a 6.2-inch OLED display integrated with a fingerprint scanner. Dimension-wise, the device could measure 152.2 x 71.8 x 8.7mm.

Google is yet to confirm the existence of the Pixel 6a. The search engine giant launched the Pixel 5a in August this year, hence we can also expect its successor to break cover in August 2022.
