Pixel 6a retail box leak indicates it may break cover sooner than expected


Google’s last two budget handsets were revealed in August, which could be blamed on the pandemic. The Mountain View giant’s first affordable phone, the Pixel 3a, was announced in May 2019 at the Google I/O conference and a few insiders have suggested that this year The Pixel 6a will also be unveiled in May. The retail box for the phone has appeared online, which lends weight to this rumor.
The Pixel 6a retail box image was posted by Techxine, which is a new tech-focused blog, so it’s best to take this report with a grain of salt. The box looks a lot like the Pixel 6 box, with the Google logo in the top center and the image of the device just below.
The device itself also resembles the Pixel 6, as returned leaked had indicated. That would be a departure from the Pixel 5a design. It has a horizontal camera bar that spans the top of the phone and appears to have a glass back and shiny metal sides. Since this is a budget device, it might be made of a shiny plastic material instead.
The phone seems to have two camera sensors and an LED flash. The device is rumored to get the 12.2MP main sensor we’ve seen on Google handsets from the Pixel 3 to Pixel 5a, but the 12MP ultra-wide sensor will be the same as the Pixel 6. , it may also feature the Pixel 6’s 8MP front camera, which will be housed in a punch-hole cutout.

Previously rumored, the phone will sport a 6.2-inch screen and be powered by the in-house Tensor chip that also powers the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. Along with the black variant pictured in the box, we can also expect white and green models.

The Pixel 6a could be announced during the Google I/O developer conference which will take place from May 11 to 12. It could be a while before it hits shelves, as one report says. went on sale July 28. This could reduce his chances of becoming the best budget phone of 2022, considering the Tensor will be a bit dated by then. After all, even the iPhone SE 3, which is powered by Apple’s flagship chip, is struggling to attract buyers, but that may be because of its outdated design.
