A Vietnam gadget enthusiast got their hand on a developer unit of the unannounced Pixel 7a smartphone and captured a bunch of pictures of it and shared its specs and features online.
Pixel 7a is the next mid-range smartphone from Google and will likely be announced within the next few months. There’s also a high possibility that Google could show the Pixel 7a at the Google I/O developer conference in May.
The Pixel 7a carries a 6.1-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate
Vietnam’s Zing News has a full set of images and details of the Pixel 7a. It looks like this phone could have been a test model used by developers. Although it was working, running Android 13, Google had locked it remotely to make it unusable.
The design of the unannounced phone matches the design of the current Pixel 7 series models. The bottom of the Pixel 7a has dual speaker grills, a USB-C port, and the volume rocker and power button on the right-hand side. It has a 6.1-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, with a camera hole cutout dual 12MP camera setup with both wide and ultra-wide lenses.
The device in hand had 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 128GB of internal storage, the frame made of metal with glass everywhere else, and a single SIM card slot, but it could possibly have eSIM support.
Just keep in mind that this is not official until Google actually launches the phone. Also, there is no way to know for sure if these images and details are legit or if Google’s plans have changed since the alleged prototype was made.
