Unboxing video for Google Pixel 6a is early


This early unpacking video of the Google Pixel 6a reveals the device’s inner workings.

Unboxing videos for Google’s new inexpensive smartphone, the Pixel 6a, have appeared online.

YouTuber Fazil Halim(opens in new tab) has posted an unboxing video of the Pixel 6a, in which he shows off what’s inside the box and discusses his overall thoughts on the device. The only drawback is that he’s providing his views in Malay, which makes it less objective than the official Pixel 6a unboxing video that went viral.


Android Police(opens in new tab) has the broad strokes of what is stated in the video itself, though. We see the phone unboxed and images showing the USB-C cable and the USB-C to USB-A converter, which are included with all Pixel phones, of course.

Halim also compares the phone’s dimensions to the Google Pixel 6 Pro. As expected, the camera bar on the rear of the 6a is a lot smaller than the bar on the back of the 6s. The rounded edges of the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro have been replaced with flat sides, similar to the iPhone 13, on the Pixel 6a.

The 6.1-inch OLED display with a 60Hz refresh rate and the 4,410 mAh battery were two of Halim’s favourite features. Additionally, the in-display fingerprint scanner is expected to perform well, which might indicate a solution to Google’s string of Pixel 6 fingerprint sensor issues.


Some features of the phone didn’t please Halim. Among the things he didn’t like were the camera’s overall performance and the selfie camera in particular. He was also not pleased with the 18W charging rates.

The Google Tensor chip will be inside the Pixel 6a, as will Android 12 on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. In terms of performance, we assume the 6a won’t be all that different from its predecessors, but we won’t know for sure until we get our hands on one.

For $449 in the United States, £399 in the United Kingdom, and €749 in Australia, Google’s Pixel 6a will be available on July 21.
