Google introduced that the Pixel 6a wouldn’t debut till later this summer time, however that hasn’t stopped the leakers from teasing us. Over the weekend, Malaysian YouTuber, Fazli Halim, revealed an 11-minute lengthy take a look at the upcoming Pixel 6a. The gadget featured within the reel matches the Pixel 6a previewed throughout the Google I/O 2022 opening keynote. It additionally aligns with the unlisted informational video Google Retail Coaching France revealed final month. (The video has since gone non-public.)
I attempted desperately to translate the video from Malay with YouTube’s dwell captions, to no avail. However the video does supply a glimpse at the feel and appear of the cellphone. The video begins with a full unboxing of the black-and-gray Pixel 6a—also called “charcoal” on the official Google Retailer itemizing. The field appears to be like the identical because the one the Pixel 6/6 Professional got here in and features a USB-C to USB-C charging cable, together with an adapter for transferring information between telephones.
Within the video, the Pixel 6a appears to be like mid-range in comparison with the flagship Pixel 6. It seems barely thicker, although it has a smaller 6.1-display in comparison with the Pixel 6’s 6.4-inch show. It additionally sports activities the identical back-facing digital camera bar protruding on the again, together with a flush rear-facing digital camera system.
The YouTube video lists the very same digital camera specs because the Google Retailer itemizing: a 12.2-MP dual-pixel extensive digital camera with an f/1.7 aperture and 77-degree discipline of view, coupled with a 12-MP ultrawide digital camera with an f/2.2 aperture and 114-degree discipline of view. The front-facing digital camera is an 8-MP digital camera with an 84-degree discipline of view.
G/O Media might get a fee
The remainder of the video incorporates a reprise of all the things we already know. Halim reveals us how the Pixel 6a works with Android 12’s Fast Settings panel pulled down, and likewise with the House display. We additionally get a fast take a look at the digital camera app and the way rapidly it snaps pictures, however there’s nothing like utilizing the gadget your self. Maybe probably the most telling a part of the video is across the 8-minute mark, when Halim makes an attempt to log in with a thumbprint, and it takes about two or three tries earlier than the Pixel 6a efficiently unlocks.
The Pixel 6a will formally launch on July 28 for $450. It’s excepted to compete head-on with different mid-range smartphones, particularly the iPhone SE for iOS-using of us and the Samsung Galaxy A53 for the remainder of the Android-using brood.
