This year’s Google I/O will probably be the biggest ever. Apart from the usual developer-centric news, and the Android 14 full reveal, the search giant will also launch new hardware. The Google Pixel 7a is certainly coming at the event, and the Google Pixel Tablet and Pixel Fold are also expected. The Pixel 7a keeps leaking no matter what and today we have more fresh details about the device. Right now, there aren’t many secrets about this device, but it’s good to see a test of its performance on Geekbench. The device runs on Google Tensor G2 and seems to be quite well-optimized for launch.
Google Pixel 7a specifications
The Geekbench benchmark confirms a set of details for the upcoming Pixel 7a. The device passed by the platform with the Tensor G2 SoC. It’s not a big surprise to see this chipset here. It was available with the flagship Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, and now is coming to the more affordable variant. The CPU has two cores clocked at up to 2.35 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. Unlike the regular flagship SoCs, this is an ARMv8 chipset. It brings a powerful Mali-G710 GPU. The Pixel 7a scored 1,380 points in the Single Core, and 3071 points in the multi-core department. The listing also confirms 8 GB of RAM for the handset. In terms of storage, we expect the phone to start with 128 GB of Storage.
Gizchina News of the week
It’s not a surprise, but the Geekbench listing also confirms Android 13 OS. Rather than just performance, Google wants to offer a consistent experience with its Pixel 7 series. So although the Tensor G2 is not on par with the likes of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, not even Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the experience should be among the best for a device of this price. Also, you will also get Google’s level of software support.
The leaks point to four color options for this handset – Blue, Grey, Blue, and Coral option. The phone will come with a 64 MP main camera with OIS and a 13 MP ultrawide shooter. The phone retains the visor-like design of the Pixel 7. On the front, there is a 6.1-inch OLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate. We assume it has a 1080p resolution. The phone also has a top-center punch-hole for the 13 MP camera.
The phone will weigh about 193.5 grams and will bring wireless support for the first time in the Google A series. However, don’t hold your breath for it. The leaks point to just 5W wireless charging. Besides the Google Tensor G2, the phone will also bring the Tensor M2 for security. In terms of battery, the phone will likely follow the footsteps of its predecessor Pixel 6a with a 4,500 mAh battery.
