Google Pixel 7a leaks confirm better chipset, better camera and more

A leaker just exposed new exciting features of the upcoming midrange from Google – Google Pixel 7a, months before launch.

Last year, the Google Pixel 6a came around May and the 7a will probably be available around the same time. Prior to that, Debayan Roy (Gadgetsdata) gave us new insights on some possibilities and upgrades on the phone including pictures.


As you would probably expect, the phone will still come with the same Tensor G2 found on the rest of the Pixel 7 series.

To be completely honest, when comparing specifications, Google’s Tensor G2 lags behind a lot of the competition.

With its unusual core layout and questions surrounding its modem still, this SoC is undoubtedly weaker than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for sure, and by extension, than the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 too.

Perhaps the most exciting part would be the camera upgrades. On the back, the camera system has a primary 64MP Sony camera.

This is quite a jump from the previous 12.2MP which was on the Pixel 6a. Generally Google Pixel phones tend to take the highest quality smartphone pictures so this would make it even a tougher competitor. It will also have a secondary 12MP ultrawide camera.

The other new exciting feature is the 5W wireless charging capability. The 6a did not have any wireless charging at all so having that on the 7a will significantly justify its price to some extent.

The phone is expected to be launched at the Google I/O event which will happen on the 10th of May.
