Rumor has it that Google’s next budget-friendly Pixel phone will have a few key upgrades over the Pixel 6a, including the latest Google Tensor processor, a 90 Hz display, and upgraded cameras.

Now we have an idea of what it might look like, thanks to a set of images from OnLeaks and SmartPrix.

Keep in mind that these are not leaked promotional pictures. Instead, they appear to be 3rd-party renders based on specifications that were most likely leaked by case designers or other accessory makers.

Anyway, it seems like the phone measures 152.4 x 72.9 x 9mm, making it just a tiny bit larger than the Pixel 6a (152.2 x 71.8 x 8.9mm). But the biggest difference is an updated design with a silver camera bar and silver sides that mirrors the design of the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

Other details from the photos include indications that the phone will have a USB Type-C port, and a SIM card reader, but no headphone jack. It will have two cameras (not three, as at least some folks had predicted). At least two color options will be available: white and dark grey.

You can find more images at SmartPix. The Pixel 7a will most likely launch in the first half of 2023.

  1. Too bad it can only run Android or Android mimics. Tablets and phones have become extremely boring with duopoly. A phone that runs full Windows 11 on its own hardware would be more interesting. Too bad Linux phones are permanently stuck in beta. Just read the Linux phone forums to see how many are still waiting for a phone to arrive or people who report their phones just stop working.

    1. On the bright side, you can run VMs on the Pixel 6 and 7 lines. So Windows 11 is an option (without hardware video acceleration atm)
