The hotly-anticipated Google Pixel 6a smartphone is likely to pack a Tensor GS101 chipset under the hood. Last month, the search engine giant unveiled two new smartphones. These include the Google Pixel 6 and its Pro variant. However, the rumor mill has already been churning out speculations around the tech company’s next smartphone. Not too long ago, Google Pixel 6a renders were spotted online.
As expected, the recently surfaced Google Pixel 6a renders revealed the flagship phone’s awe-inspiring design. If these renders are anything to go by, the upcoming smartphone will feature a punch-hole display, as well as a rear camera visor. Now, more vital pieces of information about the alleged handset have popped up on the internet courtesy of 9to5Google. The report suggests that the Pixel 6a could use the same chipset found in the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones.
Google Pixel 6a Could Pack A Tensor GS101 Chip
According to the latest report, the Google Pixel 6a smartphone will probably pack the Tensor GS101 chipset under the hood. To recall, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones use the same chipset. Furthermore, the upcoming smartphone will reportedly draw inspiration from the Google Pixel 5 for its camera setup. Furthermore, the codebase found on the upcoming phone’s Google Camera app has divulged key camera configurations.
The Pixel 6a could house a 12.2MP Sony IMX363 primary camera. Interestingly, the Pixel 5 featured the same camera. Aside from that, the phone will come with a 12MP IMX386 lens that will probably serve as an ultra-wide camera. Moreover, there is an 8MP IMX355 sensor on the front for capturing selfies and video calling. The device carries the codename “Bluejay.” A slew of other key details about the purported handset has been making the rounds online lately.
What Else To Expect?
The Google Pixel 6a will reportedly retain Tensor-supported features that are available on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. For instance, it will include Voice Typing update and improved HDRnet video capabilities. If this proves to be true, the Pixel 6a will be the first phone under the Google Pixel A-series to pack the same chip as other steeply-priced smartphones. According to a report from 91mobiles, Google could unveil another Pixel 6a model that will draw power from a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC.
To recall, the company has adopted a similar approach for the Pixel A-series smartphones. The Pixel 6a renders suggest that the phone will feature a 6.2-inch flat OLED display. Furthermore, it is likely to have a punch-hole cutout in the center, as well as an in-display fingerprint sensor above it. The rear visor-like camera setup could house two cameras along with a single LED flash. Aside from that, the renders suggest that the phone’s rear panel will be made of glass material.
Also, the renders showcase an eye-catching dual-tone color finish. The right edge houses the volume button and the power button. The SIM card slot is available on the left edge. Moreover, there’s a USB Type-C port, two speaker grilles, and a microphone at the bottom. All four edges feature antenna cutouts, suggesting that the phone will be housed in a metal frame.
