Google Pixel 7a

The smartphone industry is evolving and the standard for flagships is increasing. As more top-notch features are used for flagships, entry-level and mid-range smartphones get better. At the moment, flagships get at least a 120Hz screen refresh rate. This means that 90Hz is now available for entry-level or mid-range smartphones. Apple refuses to use a high refresh rate screen for its basic iPhones. However, Google is likely to take a different route. Last year’s Google Pixel 6a was criticized for its lack of a high-refresh screen. The company will now make changes to the upcoming Google Pixel 7a.

According to reports, the Google Pixel 7a will come with a 90Hz screen. This device will also support wireless charging. Furthermore, it will come with a new set of rear dual-camera hardware. @Kuba Wojciechowski claims the 90Hz display is a new generation 1080p panel from Samsung Display. Initial speculations considers this device to be a “Pixel 7 Ultra”. However, the codename, Lynx, actually refers to the Pixel 7a.
