Back in May’s Google I/O, the search giant announced the Pixel 6a availability in July. The device’s specifications are hardly a mystery right now, but it’s not yet available for customers. Despite this, the phone has been leaking in the wild in the past few days. The device even appeared for sale on Facebook ahead of its actual launch.
Today, the leaker Evan Blass has posted a full set of renders of the Google Pixel 6a on his Twitter account. The images aren’t showing anything new if you’ve been following the Pixel 6a news, however, he also disclosed a complete set of specifications for the handset.
