Those who follow Google know that the company presents new pixel phones in the fall, and then about six months later offers the A version, which competes in the mid-range segment.
It is the same this year. The Pixel 6a comes powered by the same Google Tensor chip as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro flagships, but in a more compact edition and with a significantly lower price.
Equipped with a 6.1-inch OLED screen in FHD+ resolution, the Pixel 6a is a significantly smaller and lighter phone than the Pixel 6. While that screen diagonal will appeal to many, the refresh rate will not.
Namely, the Pixel 6a comes with a 60Hz screen, although those who have already had the opportunity to try it claim that the display on it is just as fluid as on the 120Hz LTPO panel of the Pixel 6 Pro top model.
The camera module on the back again extends across the entire width, but it sticks out less, so that will suit many. It has two 12MP cameras, the main one equipped with OIS stabilization. They say it’s great.
Top performance is provided by Google’s 5nm Tensor chip, and it has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 data memory.
The battery with a capacity of 4410 mAh is said to be sufficient for a solid autonomy, and it is charged at only 18W and exclusively by wire.
It also has excellent stereo speakers and an equally good vibration motor for the same decisive haptic response as the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro top models.
Its trump card is certainly pure Android 12 and 5 years of software support.
The official start of sales is July 28. and from today it is possible to pre-order it in 13 markets, of course Croatia is not among them.
The closest to us will arrive in Italy and Germany, where it will cost 459 euros.
In the end, is this an interesting phone but with the wrong compressions?
