The Google Pixel 6a isn’t expected to go on sale until next month, but leaks have already revealed plenty of details about the phone. The latest involves a series of official-looking promotional renders.
The images come from a long-time leak Evan Blass (opens in a new tab), and they certainly seem like the real deal. Of course, the fact that we’ve seen the Pixel 6a before, and in all three colors, means there’s nothing in the renders that we don’t already know. But if you want to see what the midrange Pixel 6a might look like from just about every angle imaginable, Blass has you covered.

And, if this leak is legit, it shows just how serious Google’s leak problem really is.
In recent weeks, we’ve seen two Pixel 6a unboxes appear online: A supposedly from Google itself and another from Malaysian YouTuber Fazil Halim. Plus, there’s the incident where the then unannounced Pixel Watch was left in a restaurantapparently revealing a bunch of key details about Google’s first smartwatch ahead of its reveal at Google I/O the following month.
Pre-orders for the Pixel 6a open on July 21, and the phone will officially go on sale a week later on July 28. It will set you back $449 / £399 and will come in three colours: Chalk (white), Sage (green) and Charcoal (dark grey).
All three variants will have the same hardware, including Google-made Tensor chipset, 6.1-inch OLED display with 60Hz refresh rate, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, 4,410mAh battery , an 8MP selfie camera and a Dual Module rear camera with 12.2MP main lens and 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens. Charging is limited to 18W.
Naturally, the Pixel 6a will come with Android 12 out of the box, with all the same Android-based perks found in the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. That includes being the first to upgrade to Android 13 when it arrives later this year.
We don’t yet know what kind of performance the Pixel 6a has to offer us. But we’ll do our own testing when the phone launches to find out just how good the phone, its battery life, and that Tensor chipset really are.
