Mukul Sharma, a frequent tipster, reveals that several Asian countries have started production for the Google Pixel 6a series. Pixel 6a is Google’s next budget phone and is much awaited by fans worldwide. Now, according to rumors, the new handheld will launch soon.
Additionally, Google I/O 2022, Google’s annual developer conference, will begin in a couple of days. Fans speculate that the event’s hardware announcement will include the Google Pixel 6a. Unfortunately, according to Mukul, the new Google budget smartphone may not go on sale till July 28. But, the bright side is that Pixel 6a will probably launch in more nations than Pixel 5a, which launched only in the US and Japan. Plus, according to Mukul’s tweet, the Google Pixel 6a with support for NFC is now in the production phase. Hence further proving that the device will launch soon. He also unveiled the names of the Asian countries that started the serial production of the device. The list reportedly includes Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and possibly India.
Possible specs of Google Pixel 6a
According to rumors, Pixel 6a will resemble Pixel 6 in design. As a result, the new device will possess a horizontal camera bar and a center punch-hole camera. However, it will consist of a 6.2-inches display and smaller overall dimensions than Pixel 6. Additionally, it will probably flaunt a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 primary camera with a 12MP ultrawide camera setup on the rear. Plus, the Pixel 6a will feature an 8MP selfie snapper.
Moreover, the new handset will contain the same in-house Tensor chip as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. But, users suspect that Google has optimized the chipset to boost performance. Also, rumors are that the Pixel 6a will possess at least 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and Android 12OS.
Furthermore, there are no details on the Google Pixel 6a price, although fans suspect it might cost more than the Pixel 5a ($449). The reason is that it will possess a new design, enhanced cameras, and Pixel’s flagship chipset. However, a higher price of the device might make it less popular than Samsung Galaxy A53 ( $449) and Apple iPhone SE 3 ($429). In any case, customers wouldn’t have to wait that long to know that since the launch is just around the corner.
