The Google Pixel 7a Is Flagship in Disguise!

Flagship specs, budget-friendly price

The Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are surely very impressive devices. However, both the 6.3-inch and 6.7-inch display sizes of the phones are a bit too much for some users. While these users might be among a very tiny group, small flagship devices still make a lot of sense in 2023. Well, that is where the Pixel 7a comes in.

However, as with the past series of Pixel phones, they did not come with high-end internals. Instead of aiming for being among the flagships, the budget smartphones from Google aimed to be good mid-range devices. But things seem to be different for the Google Pixel 7a.

Pixel 7a Will Not Be a Typical Mid-Range Phone

Yes, the Google Pixel 7a will not be the highest-end device from Google. But it will not be a strictly entry-level option either. We have already had a good few rumors that suggests that Google is not skimping too much on its upcoming “a” smartphone.

And if the rumors are believed to be true, the Google Pixel 7a will be a powerhouse! From what we know so far, the device will pack the Tensor G2 chipset. Yes, it is the same SoC that is powering the current Pixel 7 and 7 Pro.

Furthermore, we came to know that the Pixel 7a will debut with 6GB of RAM and a beautiful OLED display. Now, Google is not pushing too much in terms of the display department. Instead, the phone is set to come with a refresh rate of up to 90Hz. Still, 90Hz is better than 60Hz, and it should offer a smooth overall experience.

It is pretty hard to deny that cheaper smartphones have evolved a lot in the past couple of years. The recent budget-friendly phones are offering a lot for the money. Sometimes, the performance of those phones is pretty much neck and neck with the flagships. And the case seems to be the same for Google Pixel 7a.

Should It Be Your Next Phone?

The rumored spec sheet of the Google Pixel 7a makes it pretty clear that the phone is a decent pick as a flagship. In fact, as the title of the post states, it is a flagship in disguise. It is more than your typical mid-range smartphone both in terms of performance and looks.

Even if you are a hardcore user who likes to have the latest and greatest hardware inside your phone, it will be hard for you to see much of a difference between the 7a and Pixel 7 or 7 Pro.

That said, the only room for mistakes from Google on the Pixel 7a would be the camera department. If Google cheaps out and integrates an inadequate camera on the Pixel 7a, it might not be a better buy at the rumored price of $449.

On the note of the rumored price, it comes from Google Pixel 6a. That device currently starts at $449. And even if you are not using the device, you can not deny it is an acceptable price, especially when you compare it with the 2022 iPhone SE. That phone still has a 10-year-old design and lags a lot behind the current flagships.

Now, there is no denying that Google might increase the price tag a little bit. Even so, the Pixel 7a will be a good purchase if it comes with the rumored specs and decent camera hardware. In fact, the device will be a much better option than the “boringly perfect” Samsung Galaxy S23.

Still, we have a lot to uncover about the device. And hopefully, more concrete leaks about the Pixel 7a will surface pretty soon.

    But the biggest red flag is the cracking of the screen due to the camera housing.
