Design and Display

The Google Pixel 8a is expected to follow the design language of the Pixel 8, featuring a metal frame, glass back, and a candy bar-style form factor. The phone is rumoured to have a more curved outlook compared to its predecessor, the Pixel 7a, which should make it more comfortable to hold. Also, the Pixel 8a is said to have gained a bit of weight, indicating a larger battery and possibly wireless charging support.

The phone’s display is a 6.1-inch OLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate and a peak HDR brightness of 1,400 nits, making it a significant upgrade from the Pixel 7a’s 90Hz display. The display is sourced from two manufacturers, most likely BOE and Samsung, and is expected to perform similarly to the Pixel 8’s display. The corner radius of the display has also been increased, aligning it better with the Pixel 8 series. However, the Pixel 8a’s display is rumoured to have thick bezels, with the bottom edge being the most prominent. Despite this, the phone features rounded corners, which align it better with the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

The Pixel 8a’s design is expected to be similar to the Pixel 8’s, with a horizontal camera bar spanning the length of the phone’s back panel, rounded corners, and a contoured design. The phone’s dimensions are rumoured to be slightly smaller than the Pixel 7a.

Color Options

The Pixel 8a will come in four colour options: Obsidian, Porcelain, Bay, and Mint. The Obsidian colour offers a deep, dark black, while Porcelain presents a soft, warmer white. The Bay colour shares similarities with the Bay colour available on the Pixel 8 Pro, but the Pixel 8a’s Bay shade appears more saturated. The Mint colour, which was introduced for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro earlier this year, is also making a comeback for the Pixel 8a. However, this new Mint colour appears much more saturated than its current counterpart.

The Pixel 8a’s camera system includes updated, pro-level cameras for better low-light photos, sharper selfies, and Pixel’s best zoom ever. The phone’s camera app also features Pro controls, which expose options for shutter speed, exposure length, white balance, ISO sensitivity, and focus, giving photographers fine-tune control over their shots.

In terms of video, the Pixel 8a features Video Boost, a tool that uses AI to improve shadow detail, reduce noise speckles, and stabilize videos, making it the best low-light smartphone video in the market. This feature is particularly useful for low-light scenes.

Performance and Battery Life

The Pixel 8a is powered by Google’s new Tensor G3 chipset, which offers fast and efficient performance. The Tensor G3 represents Google’s continued efforts to create an optimized mobile System on a Chip (SoC) for its devices, incorporating machine learning (ML) algorithms to enhance local tasks like camera post-processing, live audio transcriptions, and photo editing tools.

The Tensor G3 chip is based on Samsung’s 4-nanometer (4nm) fabrication process. This is an upgrade from the previous Tensor G2’s 5nm process. It also features a unique CPU design with cores optimized for various tasks. While the Tensor G3 chip focuses on camera and AI improvements, it aims to run cooler than its predecessors, addressing some of the heating issues observed in earlier models.

The phone also features a 4,500 mAh battery. This battery is larger than its predecessor, the Pixel 7a, andshould to offer better battery life. The phone supports 27W wired charging, allowing for faster charging speeds compared to previous models. The Pixel 8a’s battery life is expected to be decent for moderate use, with improvements in efficiency and charging times over its predecessor. However, the phone’s battery performance may vary depending on usage. Obviously, during gaming and video streaming, the battery will drain faster than during during activities like calling and streaming music.
