❤ Pixel 7a leaks in official-looking images showing off blue color



Google’s Pixel 7a is expected to arrive at Google I/O in just over a month, and now the phone has leaked in official-looking images.

The Pixel 7a isn’t a device that’s exactly shrouded in mystery, but it hasn’t shown up in many images thus far. MySmartPrice and @OnLeaks today published several images of the Pixel 7a that show the device off from several angles in what appear to be official renders of the device set to be used for marketing and other purposes.

While these renders don’t tell us anything now about what’s inside of the Pixel 7a, they do show a device that’s remarkably similar to its predecessor. The Pixel 7a shares the same shape and screen bezels as the Pixel 6a, but does see a couple of tweaks. The camera bar is lower this time around, and also matches the design of the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro with a metal bar that has a cutout for the camera module. It looks like the bar will be matte, matching the $599 Pixel 7. Expected in that camera bar is an upgraded primary sensor.

Pixel 7a: Expected Specifications

The Pixel 7a is tipped to feature a 64MP Sony IMX787 main camera sensor along with a 12MP ultra-wide camera sensor as well. The new Pixel is said to offer up to 256GB of internal storage, which is an upgrade from the 128GB limit of the last gen. Google is also rumoured to bump up the RAM and launch the phone with 8GB of RAM. In terms of the selfie camera, the device will boat a 10.8MP front camera.

Furthermore, the phone is tipped to feature a 6.1-inch OLED display with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. The device is expected to get a boost in terms of performance as well with the introduction of the new Tensor G2 SoC. The device is also tipped to feature support for 5W wireless charging. The Pixel 7a will run on Android 13 out of the box.









Most notable here is the blue color variant which we’ve not yet seen. This color was first reported on earlier this year, with new Pixel Buds variants coming to match it, but this is the first we’ve seen it. The blue shade is pretty pale, but perhaps a little more visible than the blue Pixel 4a.

Also somewhat notable is the frame of the device, which changes it shade a bit more between color variants this year. And also like the Pixel 6a, there are antenna bands along the frame, all but confirming that it will be made of metal.









The Pixel 7a is expected to add support for wireless charging, new cameras as mentioned, and also pack Google’s Tensor G2 chipset. Pricing is unclear, but the phone was previously tipped to go on sale in June.

Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a set to launch in June according to leaked retail listing





Google has major smartphone launches just around the corner, with announcements expected at I/O in May. Now, it sounds like the Google Pixel Fold and Pixel 7a release date will be in June, as some other details have also come to light.

The Google Pixel Fold is set to launch in mid-June of this year, leaked retail listings viewed. The listings also specifically call the product “Google Pixel Fold,” as expected.

The Pixel 7a as well as a new blue variant of Pixel Buds A-Series would also release on the same date.

That’s well ahead of schedule compared to Google’s I/O launches in 2022, where the Pixel 6a arrived in July after being announced at the annual conference. A June release date would certainly keep the Pixel Fold’s internals relevant for longer, given the device is set to use the Tensor G2 chipset found in last year’s Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro.

The retail listings also indicate Pixel Fold will be available in two colors, a “Carbon” color that’s surely a shade of black or grey, as well as “Porcelain” which is likely white. We’ve also heard that Google is planning official cases for the Fold in “Haze Midtone,” “Porcelain,” and “Sky” color options.

And finally, it appears that the Pixel Fold will be available solely in a 256GB storage variant, or at least that’s the smallest option available based on the retail listings. We also spotted a 512GB variant, but only in the “Carbon” colorway.

As for the Pixel 7a, the listings show “Carbon,” “Cotton”, and “Arctic Blue” colors. Roland Quandt of WinFuture also mentioned a possible “Jade” color coming, but we’re not seeing that option. We are, however, seeing “Jade” as a case color alongside “Arctic Blue,” “Carbon,” and “Cotton White.” The listings show 128GB of storage as the only option, which would be on par for previous A-series launches.
