The Pixel 6a was unveiled in May at Google IO, but it won’t be available for purchase until July. Meanwhile, new photos of the mid-range handset have leaked online, revealing more about the device’s internal components and software.

Evan Blass, a well-known Twitter tipster, has shared these images, which appear just like Google’s official promotional images. Three colors, chalk (white), sage (green), and charcoal (gray), are on display, as well as some lifestyle photographs.

There’s a lot of pictures, but they don’t teach us anything new about these phones. For those who plan to buy a Google Pixel 6a at the end of July, this gallery should suffice.

What we know

Preorders for the Google Pixel 6a will begin a week before the phone goes on sale on July 28. For $449 / £399 / AU$749, you’ll get 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage on the base model.

There is a first-generation Tensor chipset that powers everything, so performance is expected to be excellent. On the display front, we’re expecting an OLED panel that’ll have a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels and refresh at 60Hz.

There is an 8MP front-facing camera, a 12.2-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 12-megapixel ultrawide rear-facing camera on the new Nexus 6. You’ll be able to charge the 4,410mAh battery at a pace of 30W.

Analysis: Google’s slow burn phone launches

This is an uncommon move by Google, as they’ve announced the Pixel 6a and Google Pixel 7 months before they’ll be available for purchase. We don’t think this is the best course of action.

This is not the first time that the business has done something like this. Prior to the release of the Pixel 4a with 5G and its successor, Google said that the devices will be coming. The Pixel 4a was also unveiled at the same moment, proving that Google like announcing phones in groups.

However, customers are given ample notice of what they might expect. You may save money, plan ahead, and you won’t be caught out buying an outdated phone only a few days before a new model comes out of nowhere. Having a better idea of what’s to come makes it easier to make purchasing judgments.

There is a risk in flashing your cards too early because phones may already appear old and out of date by the time you can buy them. We’ll have to wait and see if this strategy helps the Pixel 6a sell well.
