The Google Pixel 6a Was announced at the Google IO back in May, but it would not go on sale till July. While we wait, more promotional images of the mid-range handset have been leaked out, offering us more of a look at the hardware and software of the devices.
Google Pixel 6a Leaked Promo Images Show off Phone Ahead of its Launch
These photos come in courtesy of the well-known tipster Evan Blass on Twitter, and they would look exactly like you would expect official promo shots from Google to look. The three colors are now available on the show – chalk (White), Sage (Green), and Charcoal (Gray) and there are some lifestyle shots that you can pore over too.
While the imagery does not really say anything that we do not know about these phones, there is plenty of it. If you are planning on picking up a Google pixel 6a at the end of July, then these shots should get you going till then.

What we Know
The Google pixel 6a would be available for sale on the28 of July, with preorders opening up a week before. This would set you back $449 / £399 / AU$749, and there’s one specs configuration, which gives you 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Powering everything is the same first-gen Tensor chipset that runs inside the Google Pixel 6 and the Google Pixel 6 pro, so performance should be top-notch. Also, we know that the phone would sport a 6.1-inch OLED Screen, with a 1080 x 2400-pixel resolution and refresh rate of 60Hz.
When it comes to the cameras, Google has gone for a 12.2MP Main camera and a 12MP ultrawide camera around the back, with an 8MP camera on the front for the selfies. The phone comes at a battery capacity of 4,410mAh, and you should be able to charge that up at a rate of about 30W.
Google Slow Burn Phone Launches
Google has taken the somewhat unusual step of announcing the Pixel 6a and indeed the Google Pixel 7 a significant amount of time before they would be available for sale, and we are not sure if it is a particularly good approach to take.
The company actually has some previous form of this. Remember the time Google told us the Pixel 4a with 5G and Pixel 5 were coming, months ahead of the phones actually going on sale. This was the same time as the Google Pixel 4a was introduced to the world, so Google does enjoy announcing phones in batches.
On the one hand, it offers consumers a lot of warnings concerning what they should expect. Money can be saved, plans can be made, and this means that you would not get caught out purchasing an older handset day before a new one pops out of the blue. Knowing more about what’s coming makes purchasing decisions easier.
However, it does mean that phones can already seem old and out of date by the time they can eventually be purchased – and there is a danger in showing your cards too early. We would be required to wait and see how successful the approach is in terms of sales for pixel 6a.
