The Pixel 6A is the latest phone to join the competitive upper echelons of the midrange phone, also occupied by Samsung, Apple and many more. Google has announced a new phone platform at its I / O 2022 Keynote, outlining some of the key issues. The first thing you should know: it doesn’t come out immediately. Contrary to many announcements on the way to product retailers, it will not be available for pre-order until July 21, 2022, with orders shipping next week.

Surprisingly, this new (and smaller) 6.1-inch Pixel phone borrows many features of the same design from the expensive Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, including an enhanced camera section and a two-tone color scheme. The Pixel 6A is a big deal, as it is the first Google midrange phone to be shipped with its Tensor processor instead of the Qualcomm processor. It will be available in multiple colors, but it will be shipped with the same 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, whichever you buy.

If you’re interested in how the Pixel 6A can stack up with competing devices like Samsung’s Galaxy A53 5G and iPhone SE (3rd-Gen) and how it can be improved compared to the last-gen Pixel 5A, we’ve just created it. Post for you.
