Google Pixel 8a leaks again in new images showing large bezels

Vlad, 09 April 2024

Google's upcoming Pixel 8a has been leaking like crazy lately. Most recently, we've had a spec sheet for it outed a few days ago, not long after another one. Last week Google itself may have even shown us the Pixel 8a in an ad for its carrier in the US.

Today a couple of new images of the phone have leaked, showing both the back and the front of the colorway that undoubtedly will be called Obsidian (since that's what Google likes to call black these days).

The shot of the rear is pretty much what you'd expect: there's the camera 'visor' going from one side of the frame to the other, housing two sensors and a circular LED flash array, minimal G branding, and not much else.

On the front, however, the screen's bezels really are the stars of the show, as they look quite large - especially the chin - for this price point. Then again, Google will probably get away with it since most people will praise its software and camera quality. And compared to the Pixel 7a this model will be replacing, the bezels aren't that bad - it's just that some of the Pixel 8a's competitors in Europe and Asia have much smaller ones.

Speaking of comparing it to its predecessor, the corners are decidedly more rounded this time around. Aside from the Obsidian color shown here, the Pixel 8a is also expected to come in Porcelain (white) and Bay (blue). It should be powered by Google's Tensor G3 chipset, and will have a 6.1-inch 120 Hz OLED screen, 128/256GB of storage, a 64 MP main camera with OIS, a 13 MP ultrawide, a 13 MP selfie snapper, and a 4,500 mAh battery with support for 27W wired charging.

6 inches is good for one hand operation for normal people. Fits into your pocket. Not everyone wants a 6.7 inch phone. They are hard to use with one hand, in portrait mode.

Apple "serious company", "budget line"
