Google Pixel 6a has been spotted on benchmarking platform Geekbench, courtesy of MySmartPrice. The listing reveals key specifications of the device as well as hints at an imminent launch. The Pixel 6a will arrive as the successor to last year’s Pixel 5a.
Google’s Pixel A-series is a toned-down version of the company’s flagship offerings. The search giant’s mid-range smartphone usually debuts in May at the I/O Developer conference. However, since the last two years, Google has launched the Pixel 4a (review) and 5a in August.

The Geekbench listing reveals that the Google Pixel 6a will be powered by the brand’s in-house Tensor chip that debuted in the flagship Pixel 6 series. It comprises two ARM Cortex-X1 cores clocked at 2.80GHz, two ARM Cortex-A76 ticking at 2.25GHz and four energy-efficient cores at 1.8GHz. The chipset will be paired with Mali-G78 GPU.
The Pixel 6a is listed with 6GB RAM onboard. It will run on Android 12 OS out of the box. The smartphone scores 1,050 and 2,833 points in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively.
This is everything we know about the Google Pixel 6a at the moment. As per the leaked renders, the upcoming offering is expected to retain the same design as the Pixel 6 series i.e. a horizontal camera bridge on the dual-toned back panel. It is tipped to come with a 6.2-inch flat OLED display and a centre-aligned punch-hole cutout. The device will reportedly feature a 12.2MP main sensor paired with a 12MP Sony IMX396 ultra-wide-angle lens.
We will know more details about the Google Pixel 6a in the coming weeks.
