Google Pixel 8

News regarding the upcoming Google Pixel 8a has been circulating for a while. As a matter of fact, we’ve started to get reports on the device since the launch of the Pixel 8. And now, the launch is much closer than ever before. As a matter of fact, Google’s annual I/O event is set for May 14.

Wondering what the upcoming Google I/O event has to do with the launch of the Pixel 8a? Well, it’s the annual event where Google has been introducing the A-series smartphone. For reference, the Google Pixel 7a was launched at the same event last year.

That said, as per recent reports from credible sources, the Google Pixel 8a stands solid as an affordable phone.

It’s Only The Right Price Could Make the Google Pixel 8a Better Than Most Mid-range Devices

So, in case you’re out of the loop, Google Pixel devices don’t stay secret for long. There tend to be comprehensive reports way before the official unveiling. And the case of the Pixel 8a isn’t different. Reliable tipster, Yogesh Brar, has collected all the reports from credible sources and offered a comprehensive report.

As per the report, the Google Pixel 8a will be featuring a 6.1-inch FHD+ display. It’s an OLED panel with a 120 Hz refresh. With this, the upcoming phone could be the first to come with a high refresh rate display. To look back, the Pixel 7a came with a 90 Hz display. With this jump, Google could be offering a proper mid-range device with a good screen.

Tensor G3 chipset

Regarding the chipset, it’s no surprise that the phone will feature Tensor G3. It’s customary for Google to make all the devices within the same Pixel lineup have the same SoC. Yes, the Tensor G3 isn’t the fastest mid-range processor around. But Pixels has never been about performance. Instead, it’s more of the software features.


And the Tensor G3 has proven to be very capable of handling Google’s special software tricks. It can even handle a local LLM called Gemini Nano. This means the upcoming Google Pixel 8a will definitely be enjoying the AI-powered features that the company has introduced recently.

The Camera Setup Seems Solid Too

The Google Pixel 8a is expected to come with two cameras on the back. The primary sensor is set to be a 64 MP unit, accompanied by a 13 MP ultrawide. On the front, the report says that the phone will feature a 13 MP selfie shooter. That means the camera setup is unlikely to change from the Pixel 7a.

But that’s not a bad thing. Google Pixel 7a has proven to be a great mid-range camera smartphone. DxOMark, known for camera benchmarks, has given the device an overall score of 133 (source). So, you can expect the Pixel 8a to be a well-rounded camera phone too.

Even the Battery Performance of the Pixel 8a Is Expected to be Good

Yogesh Brar has even shared details on the battery of the Pixel 8a. According to his report, the phone will be featuring a 4500 mAh cell with 27-watt fast charging. This means the battery performance will be as good as the regular Google Pixel 8, which is considered to be good.

Samsung Galaxy A55

As hinted earlier, it’s just the price that will be making the final decision. Reports suggest that Google Pixel 8a will be anywhere from $500 to $550. And that seems pretty much on point, as Pixel 7a launched at $499. If all these stay true, the recently launched Galaxy A55 will face some serious competition.
