“Hands-On Images of the Google Pixel 7a – Get a Closer Look!”

Pixel 7a Hands-On Photos Confirm Design Inspired by Pixel 7

The Google Pixel 6a is still one of the best budget Android phones to buy, despite its outdated hardware. the phone was launched in July 2022, after being announced at I/O 2022 in May. With the phone’s anniversary approaching, rumors and leaks surrounding the Google Pixel 7a have been in full flow. A few months ahead of I/O 2023, high-quality Pixel 7a hands-on photos have been shared online, giving us a closer look at its design inspired by the Pixel 7.

From the hands-on images shared by the Vietnamese blog Zing News, it is clear that the Pixel 7a will adopt the Pixel 7’s camera bar design. This means the camera bump will use matte aluminum instead of glass, making it more durable. The rear glass panel also gives the phone a more premium look. However, the photos confirm that Google has not reduced the chunky bezels surrounding the display.

While difficult to determine from the hands-on images, the Pixel 7a should retain the same 6.1-inch display size as its predecessor, though the refresh rate will get a bump to 90Hz. The phone will pack 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, according to information from the About Phone and Bootloader menu. In comparison, the Pixel 6a ships with 6GB RAM.

The hands-on photos also confirm a single physical SIM tray, rubber protection around the SIM slot for IP protection, a speaker, and a USB-C port at the bottom. Google remotely locked the phone after its pictures surfaced online, making it difficult to determine its other specs. However, previous leaks suggest that the Pixel 7a will use a Tensor G2 chip, feature 5W wireless charging, and retain the same $450 price tag as its predecessor.

The unit is apparently a “software prototype” running Android 13. Given that the Pixel 7a is only a couple of months away from its official reveal, this is likely its final design as well. This is not the first time unreleased Pixel phones have surfaced in Vietnam months before their launch, so expect more leaks to emerge as the phone gets closer to its release.
