Google Pixel 6a

At the Google I/O 2022 conference, the brand updated us on its latest new mid-range phone. The Pixel 6a resembles the Pixel 6 flagships in many aspects, but Google manages to keep the price lower on the Pixel 6a.

The similarities between the Pixel 6a and the Pixel 6 start with the design. The phone will have a matte glass finish and there will be a horizontal camera setup. The fingerprint scanner is also located under the screen on the Pixel 6a and the phone no longer has a 3.5 mm audio jack. The screen of the Google Pixel 6a is a 6.1-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels.

Tensor chipset and camera

In terms of performance, Google has taken the mustard with its Pixel 6 series. This cheaper phone comes with the same Tensor processor, a chipset that brings high-end specs. Only this time, Google opts for 6 GB of RAM in combination with 128 GB of storage.

The Pixel 6a also has a 4,410 mAh battery that you can charge with a power of 18W. The Pixel 6a runs on Android 12 and will receive security updates for five years and will receive three version updates, just like the Pixel 6 series.

The phones camera is an amalgamation of the lenses on the Pixel 5a and Pixel 6. The phone uses the Pixel 5a’s 12.2MP main camera with the new 12MP wide-angle camera found on the Pixel 6. The main camera of the device also has optical image stabilization. The selfie camera is an 8 MP one.

Buy Pixel 6a

The Pixel 6a is available for sale in a green, white and black color (Sage, Chalk and Charcoal). The device will be available from July 21 (online) and the device will be available in stores on July 28. However, Google does not officially sell its Pixel devices in the Netherlands and Belgium, but you can purchase them in various ways here. A first possibility is to order them from the German or French Google Store and then have the phone delivered to you with a forwarding service such as the Covered wagon service.

A second option is to order the telephone via a Dutch webshop. Such a telephone is available via gray import and that usually makes the telephones more expensive. Belly simple is such a website which, through gray import, sells Pixel smartphones in the Netherlands. We expect that they will also offer the Google Pixel 6a. It is not yet known at what price.

What do you think of the Pixel 6a? Has the company managed to make an interesting and more affordable version of its Pixel 6? Let us know in the comments.
