The noise surrounding the launch of the Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro in October may have subsided a bit, but the news of a possible Pixel 6a was few and far between – or at least until today, when we got a few unofficial renders.
These are courtesy of the well-known tipsters @OnLeaks and 91Mobile: We have seen many other leaks from the same sources in the past few years, so we’re pretty confident that what you see in these renders will bear some resemblance to the Google Pixel 6a when it finally sees the light of day .
The renders are based on inside information leaked by Google and its supply chain partners. As a result, there may be discrepancies between these images and the final product – these are not advertising renderings that Google created itself.
So … here’s your very first and very early look at the #Google # Pixel6a! (360 ° video + beautiful 5K renderings + dimensions) #FutureSquad On behalf of my friends via @ 91mobiles -> https://t.co/7kzPc5STEU pic.twitter.com/Us8H6haEh8November 20, 2021

Display size and more
If those particular leaks are correct, the Pixel 6a will rock a 6.2-inch flat OLED display, making it smaller than the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. There is apparently an in-screen punch-hole selfie camera and fingerprint sensor, though it doesn’t look like a headphone jack is included.
A dual lens rear camera is said to be on the go with the Pixel 6a, but there doesn’t seem to be quite as much confidence in other potential specs: a custom tensor sensor is a possibility, of course, and 6GB-8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage would be for a mid-range phone like this will sound about right.
With the Google Pixel 4a launched in August 2020 and the Pixel 5a that debuted in August 2021, we would expect the Pixel 6a to hit the market in August 2022. Until then, expect a lot more leaks and rumors.
Analysis: The Pixel 6a could be a return to mid-range form from Google
They haven’t been out long, but the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones feel like a return to form after the rather lackluster Pixel 5 for Google. In hindsight, this handset feels like a placeholder while Google waited for its purpose-built Tensor chipset to be ready for production.
The Pixel 5a, like the Pixel 5, didn’t really get the pulse of when it was launched – after all, it’s only available in the US and Japan – and so Google is hoping the Pixel 6a can continue the good vibes of the Pixel 6 smartphones and puts it back at the top in the mid-range smartphone category.
Do you remember the Pixel 3a, Pixel 3a XL, Pixel 4a and Pixel 4a with 5G? It felt like Google had cut off just the right nooks and crannies to bring these devices to their attractive price levels – for a while they were some of the best mid-range Android phones you could get, especially considering the quality considering their cameras.
Now the Pixel 6a is set to offer something similar: an affordable, versatile Android device with camera features well above what you’d expect for the price. This final sale price will be critical to the success or failure of the Pixel 6a, so we will be vigilant for any potential leaks in this area.
