A more compact version of the Pixel 6
Observing the Pixel 6a in detail, we can say that we are facing a version “lite” of the Pixel 6. In short, both terminals have the same designonly that in the Pixel 6a we find some changes in the construction of its rear module to house the cameras.
Considering this, the Pixel 6a is smaller than the Pixel 6, but not as compact as the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5a respectively. Note that this version It has a 6.1-inch screen, which provides a resolution of the Full HD + type. Of course, being a cropped version, its refresh rate only reaches 60 Hz.
Power in small dimensions
As had been observed in the different leaks that were known in recent weeks, the new and powerful economic mobile from Google It has the same processor that we can find in its older brothers.
The Pixel 6a includes in its entrails the Google Tensor processor, chip that guarantees speed, fluidity and all the power you need to process apps and video games without suffering any type of problem.
to said processor It is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage, features that we can find in the Pixel 4a and Pixel 5a. As for its autonomy, the big G has provided this terminal with a 4410mAh batterywhich also supports a fast charge of 25 W.
Seeing the whole panorama that this new Google Pixel gives us, those people who buy it will be able to enjoy multimedia content and video games without any type of limitation. Similarly, there are phones that offer similar features at much more affordable prices.
An interesting photographic section, but somewhat limited
Taking into account that Google has cut several aspects in order to offer a cheaper mobile, it is not uncommon to find some limitations in terms of the photographic section.
The Pixel 6a It has a 12.2 MP main lens with Dual Pixel technology.and a second 12 MP ultra wide angle lens. Although here we can see that the large 50 MP rear camera was not included in this model, we still have Google’s AI that substantially improves the final result of photos and videos.
As for its front camera, Google decided to include a 8MP lens, so in this aspect there is no cut. It should be added that rear cameras allow video recording up to 4K and 60 FPSalthough these details decrease if video is captured from the front camera (1080 pixels at 30 FPS).
It is worth adding that this smartphone also offers slow motion recording, which is capable of capturing video at 240 fps by reducing the resolution. This feature is only present if the main 12.2 MP sensor is used (it cannot be accessed with the ultra wide angle or the front camera).
Other interesting features that we can find in this mobile are the stereo speakers, the fingerprint reader under the screen, 5G connectivity, WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 and NFC.
Similarly, not all is good news, as Google confirmed that this terminal does not include the beloved 3.5mm headphone jack port, What does this mean? That headphones with USB-C connections, wireless headphones or an adapter should be used.
Google Pixel 6a price and release date
As has already happened in the two generations of the Pixel a, Google only offers a single version. Yes indeed, can be purchased in 3 colors: chalk, sage green and charcoal.
On the other hand, the North American company has confirmed that this unique model will go on sale for $449 in the United States. In Spain, the price of this mobile would reach €459.
for now, presale will only be available in the United States. It will begin on July 21, although its arrival on American shelves is dated for July 28. It is expected that in Spain it will go on sale at the end of July this year.
