Google Pixel 7a leaks show that the screen, battery, and camera will be improved.

We’re starting to get a better idea of what the Google Pixel 7a will be like when it comes out sometime in 2023. The latest leak about the phone talks about the screen, how the battery will charge, and the camera.

Developer Kuba Wojciechowski, who has a better track record than most when it comes to phone leaks, did some digging and found that the Pixel 7a will have a display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, up from 60 Hz on the Google Pixel 6a.

The screen seems to be staying at 1080p, but a faster refresh rate like the standard Google Pixel 7 would be nice and make the interface feel more fluid (the Pixel 7 Pro, as you might know, goes up to 120Hz).

Cameras and battery packs

Wojciechowski says that the back camera will have a 64MP Sony IMX787 sensor and a 13MP Sony IMX712 ultrawide sensor. This should be a big step up from the Pixel 6a’s 12MP+12MP dual-lens camera.

Lastly, the phone might have wireless charging, even if it is slow wireless charging. This would be another improvement over its predecessor. There is no news yet about the battery size, which on the Pixel 6a from last year was 4,4110 mAh.

Google showed off the Pixel 6a at the Google IO event in May 2022. There’s a good chance that Google will do something similar in 2023, but we don’t know when the next IO conference will be held just yet.

Analysis: A good middle-of-the-roader

From what we’ve learned here, it looks like the Google Pixel 7A will be good. All of the upgrades are in important places and should make a real difference in how it feels to own and use the phone.

Due to the global pandemic we’ve all been living through, the Pixel series, which is in the middle of the price range, has stumbled a bit. The Pixel 5a was only available in the US and Japan, and it didn’t have many more features than the Pixel 4a.

The Google Pixel 6a was more widely available, but we didn’t like it because its battery life was short and it took a long time to charge. Google knows that it takes a lot to stand out in the mid-range market, where there is a lot of competition.

With the Google Pixel 7a, that could happen. The key to this phone series is keeping the price low while offering just a taste of premium-level specs and features, so it will be interesting to see how much the Pixel 7a sells for when it comes out.
