A hands-on Google Pixel 7a leak just revealed the phone from all angles

The Google Pixel 7a isn’t expected to arrive until a few months later, but we’re already starting to see major leaks. Which isn’t all that surprising for a Google smartphone and means we’ll have a good idea of ​​what to expect long before the phone is unveiled.

In this case, hands-on experience from Zing News. (will open in a new tab) could show the Pixel 7a in great detail. This hands-on review not only shows the phone from almost every angle, but it can also show some of the internal components of the phone.

It’s worth noting that this could be the same device that leaked through a Vietnamese Facebook group back in January. This leak and Zing News reports include at least one image of a phone screen. But it looks like a lot more information has been revealed this time around.

The design of the Pixel 7a shown in the photos from Zing News isn’t all that surprising. It’s very similar to the Pixel 7 lineup, complete with a camera back and a dual-lens cutout. The front is better differentiated from the flagship Pixel 7 line by a noticeably thicker bezel, reminiscent of the Pixel 6a.

Specifications Google Pixel 7a

Zing News claimed they were unable to turn on the phone properly, claiming it was a programmer’s test machine. However, fastboot appears to have been able to test some hardware specs, including 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM – up from 6GB last year. The original owner of the device claimed that the device features a 90Hz display, apparently seen before Google remotely locked the device, and two 12MP cameras.

Other noteworthy hardware features aren’t too surprising, including a 6.1-inch display, a metal frame with glass sides, a single SIM slot, USB-C charging, and waterproofing around the SIM tray. There’s also no sign of a headphone jack, something we haven’t seen on the Pixel A-series since the Pixel 5a.

Of course, we should take all this information with a healthy dose of skepticism. There’s no guarantee that any of these specs will make it to the Pixel 7a, especially given the fact that it appears to be a developer model. But it gives us an idea of ​​what might be in the phone.

This how-to guide doesn’t cover much, but the supposed upgrades to 8GB of RAM and a 90Hz display are big upgrades in their own right, especially if Google manages to keep the price more or less the same as the Pixel 6a.

Other update rumors include the new Tensor 2 chipset, which is designed to provide more security and machine learning capabilities. Another rumor claims that the phone may come with a 50MP Samsung GN1 sensor – the same as the Pixel 6. However, a Zing News report appears to disprove this particular claim.

We expect the Google Pixel 7a to be unveiled at Google I/O 2023 on May 10th. The event usually unveils Google’s hardware and software plans for the coming year, which means it’s the best place to announce a new mid-range phone, especially considering Google’s habit of doing just that in past years. So sit tight, be patient, and we’ll bring you all the best Pixel 7a news as soon as we hear it.
