Google Pixel 7a: Latest Leaks and Specs
Before the arrival of the Google Pixel 8 later this year, we can expect to see the Google Pixel 7a. The latest leak around the mid-ranger has given us a couple of real-world photos of the handset, as well as details on some specs.
The photos show off the expected Google Pixel 7a look, with a cut-out for the selfie camera at the top of the display and the now-familiar Pixel camera bar around the back. In short, it looks like you would expect the Google Pixel 7a to look.
The Google Pixel 7a is expected to feature a 6.1-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2400 pixel) 90 Hz OLED screen, on par with the Google Pixel 6a, except for the bump up to 90 Hz. This should ensure scrolling and animations that are a little smoother than before. The phone is also expected to have a Tensor G2 processor and a dual-lens 64MP+12MP rear camera. Additionally, the Pixel 7a is rumored to have 5W wireless charging, a first for the mid-range Pixel line.
There is no official launch date yet, but last year the Pixel 6a was unveiled at Google IO 2022. This year’s developer conference has now been set for May 10, so it seems reasonable to assume we might see the Pixel 7a then.

Into this slightly-more-promising state of affairs comes the Google Pixel 7a, and it will of course be important that the momentum is kept up. We’ve always
